Birds of a Feather
TimeWednesday, November 14th5:15pm - 6:45pm
DescriptionThe emergence of large scale data analytics in science and engineering, 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 is starting a new workshop series, BDEC2, beginning with a comprehensive study of application requirements. This BoF will review the Pathways to Convergence already identified and preview the application requirements to be discussed at the first BDEC2 meeting in November 2018. We will seek input from the SC community on the importance of HPC to such data-intensive applications.
