BSC is participating actively in the workshop series on Big Data and Extreme-scale Computing (BDEC) is premised on the idea that we must begin to systematically map out and account for the ways in which the major issues associated with Big Data intersect with, impinge upon, and potentially change the national (and international) plans that are now being laid for achieving exascale computing. The goal is to help the international community develop a plan for building a partnership to provide the next generation of HPC software to support big data and extreme computing for scientific discovery.
The third meeting in this series of 2-day workshops will be held in Barcelona, on January 29th and 30th, Thursday and Friday, with a reception on Wednesday, January 28th. Along with application leaders confronting diverse big data challenges, attendees will include members from industry, academia, and government, with expertise in algorithms, computer system architecture, operating systems, workflow middleware, compilers, libraries, languages and applications.
Meeting details are available here.
