Scope of the Workshop

High performance computing is a major strategic tool for science, engineering, and industry. Existing HPC systems, however, are largely designed and developed for computation-intensive applications with a computing centric paradigm. With the emerging and timely needs of supporting data-intensive scientific discovery and innovations, there is a need of rethinking the system architectures, programming models, runtime systems, and tools available for data-intensive HPC. The DISCS workshop provides a forum for researchers and developers in the high performance computing, data-intensive computing, and parallel computing fields to take the Big Data challenges together and present innovative ideas, experiences, and latest developments that help address these challenges.
