Reporting Meeting at ISC 2015

July 16, 2015


Matrix Room, Frankfurt Marriott Hotel
Hamburger Allee 2


In the past five years, the United States, the European Union, and Japan have each moved aggressively to develop their own plans for achieving exascale computing in the next decade. While these initiatives have focused on the well known challenges of exascale computing for hardware and software architectures, the concurrent emergence of “Big Data” methodologies in a wide variety of scientific fields has disrupted the entire research landscape on which plans for exascale computing must play out. The workshop series on Big Data and Extreme-scale Computing (BDEC) is premised on the need to systematically map out the ways in which the major issues associated with Big Data intersect and interact with plans for achieving exascale computing. The goal is to help develop a plan for international cooperation in designing and developing the next generation of software infrastructure necessary to support both Big Data and extreme computing for scientific discovery.

The morning session will focus on major international activities in Big Data and Extreme-scale Computing and the afternoon will focusing on emerging international activities in Big Data and Extreme-scale Computing.
