The emergence of large scale data analytics in a wide variety of scientific fields, and the explosive growth of data generated in edge environments by new instruments and IoT, has disrupted the landscape on which plans for exascale computing are developing. The international Big Data and Extreme-scale Computing (BDEC) workshop series is systematically mapping out the ways that the major issues associated with data intensive science interact with plans for exascale systems. This meeting will present their report on this effort and elicit community input on the development of plans for the convergence on a common software ecosystem for science.
