BDEC2 BoF at SC18
LocationKay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center
The emergence of large scale data analytics in a wide variety of scientific fields, and the explosive growth of data generated by new instruments and IoT in edge environments, has disrupted the landscape for exascale computing. The international Big Data and Extreme-scale Computing (BDEC) initiative has started a new workshop series, BDEC2, with a comprehensive study of application requirements. This BoF will review the Pathways to Convergence identified so far and initial ideas about application requirements to be discussed at the first BDEC2 meeting the last week in November, 2018. We will seek input from the SC community on big data applications and importance of HPC to them.
