The first annual Workshop on High-Performance Computing meets Databases has issued its Call For Papers. The event will take place Nov. 18 and will be co-located with SC11 in Seattle.
Our thesis is that the techniques and strategies developed in the database community – algebraic optimization, simple data parallel languages, data models as first-class citizens, logical data independence – are applicable to problems faced by the HPC community as we enter the exascale age. This focus complements the Petascale Data Storage Workshop series that has been collocated with SC for the past five years, since their focus has been solely on storage for HPC as opposed to application of data modeling, language, optimization, and indexing techniques pioneered by the database community.
Paper submissions are due Aug. 15, 2011. Read the Full Story.
