The Pittsburgh Supercomputer Center will host the TeraGrid/Blue Waters Symposium on Data-Intensive Analysis, Analytics, and Informatics on April 14-15, 2011.
The TeraGrid/Blue Waters Symposium on Data-Intensive Analysis, Analytics, and Informatics will bring together leaders in the development of algorithms, applications, frameworks, and libraries for addressing data-intensive problems at unprecedented scale. Examples of topics that this symposium will explore include new kinds of applications that focus on analytics and informatics, integration of machine learning algorithms with analysis of multimodal data, ways to express workflows that couple tasks in data-intensive analysis, and component models for productively building data-intensive applications. The symposium targets approaches and technologies that are being developed now, having near-term applicability and impact for researchers to make more effective use of Blue Waters, NSF “Track 2” systems, and large systems in NSF and other agencies. The format will integrate presentations and group discussion to maximize interaction, identification of common issues, and synthesis of new ideas.
