The International Workshop on Data-Intensive Scalable Computing Systems (DISCS)
November 16th, 2012, in conjunction with the 2012 ACM/IEEE Supercomputing Conference (SC'12)

Workshop Scope & Goals

High performance computing (HPC) is a major strategic tool for science, engineering, and industry. The existing systems, however, are largely designed and developed for computation-intensive applications with a computing centric paradigm. There exists a need of rethinking the system architectures, programming models, runtime systems, and tools for fundamentally better support of data-intensive scientific discovery and innovations. The scope of the DISCS workshop primarily lies in stimulating the following four research themes for data-intensive high performance computing:

The goal of the DISCS workshop is to bring researchers and developers in the high-performance computing, data-intensive computing, and parallel computing fields together to take the Big Data challenges and discuss new ideas, experiences, latest developments that help address these challenges with a collective effort. This workshop is also expected to elevate the emerging issue of supporting data-intensive HPC to a level commensurate with the increasing importance.
