The 2013 International Workshop on
Data-Intensive Scalable Computing Systems (DISCS-2013)

November 18, 2013

Colorado Convention Center, Denver CO, USA

Held in conjunction with SC13: The International Conference for High Performance Computing, Networking, Storage and Analysis

 

Workshop Scope and Goals

Existing high performance computing (HPC) systems are designed primarily for workloads requiring high rates of computation.  However, the widening performance gap between processors and storage, and trends toward higher data intensity in scientific and engineering applications, suggest there is a need to rethink HPC system architectures, programming models, runtime systems, and tools with a focus on data intensive computing.  The Second International Workshop on Data Intensive Scalable Computing Systems (DISCS) builds on the momentum generated by DISCS-2012, providing a forum for researchers and other interested people in the areas of data intensive computing and high performance parallel computing to exchange ideas and discuss approaches for addressing the challenges facing Big Data or data intensive computing at large scale. 

The topics of interest for the DISCS-2013 workshop include, but are not limited to:

  • HPC system architectures for data intensive applications
  • Programming models supporting data intensive applications
  • Runtime systems supporting data intensive applications
  • Productivity tools supporting data intensive applications

The primary goal of the workshop is to bring together researchers and other interested people in the areas of data intensive computing and high performance parallel computing to exchange ideas and discuss approaches for addressing the challenges facing data intensive computing at the extreme scale.

The workshop begins with a keynote address, followed by the presentation of peer-reviewed research papers describing innovative ideas for addressing data intensive computing challenges, with ample opportunity for informal discussion throughout the day.

Keynote

Dr. Lucy Nowell will deliver the keynote address for DISCS-2013.  Dr. Nowell is program manager for Data and Visualization within the Advanced Scientific Computing Research program, Office of Science, U.S. Department of Energy.

Important Dates

  • Submission deadline: August 16, 2013 August 30th, 2013 (hard deadline)
  • Author notification: October 4, 2013
  • Camera-ready version due for proceedings: October 15, 2013 October 10, 2013

Workshop Registration

Registration for SC13 workshops including DISCS-2013 is handled through the SC13 registration system.  Attendees can register for access to SC13 workshops independent of the SC13 Technical Program, or can add workshop registration to their Technical Program registration at a reduced rate.

Please visit the SC13 Registration Page for more information and to register for the SC13 workshops.

Journal Special Issue

The authors of papers presented in the DISCS-2013 workshop will be invited to extend their manuscripts to be considered for a special issue of the journal Parallel Computing: Systems & Applications, guest edited by the DISCS-2013 workshop chairs. Details regarding the journal special issue and important submission dates will be available soon on our Journal Special Issue page.
