The ISAV2016 Workshop has issued it Call for Participation. Held at SC16 in cooperation with with SIGHPC, the In Situ Infrastructures for Enabling Extreme-Scale Analysis and Visualization Workshop takes place Sunday, November 13th, 2016.
The considerable interest in the HPC community regarding in situ analysis and visualization is due to several factors. First is an I/O cost savings, where data is analyzed/visualized while being generated, without first storing to a file system. Second is the potential for increased accuracy, where fine temporal sampling of transient analysis might expose some complex behavior missed in coarse temporal sampling. Third is the ability to use all available resources, CPU’s and accelerators, in the computation of analysis products.
The workshop brings together researchers, developers and practitioners from industry, academia, and government laboratories developing, applying, and deploying in situ methods in extreme-scale, high performance computing. The goal is to present research findings, lessons learned, and insights related to developing and applying in situ methods and infrastructure across a range of science and engineering applications in HPC environments; to discuss topics like opportunities presented by new architectures, existing infrastructure needs, requirements, and gaps, and experiences to foster and enable in situ analysis and visualization; to serve as a “center of gravity” for researchers, practitioners, and users/consumers of in situ methods and infrastructure in the HPC space.
“We invite two types of submissions to ISAV 2016: (1) short, 4-page papers that present research results, that identify opportunities or challenges, and that present case studies/best practices for in situ methods/infrastructure in the areas of data management, analysis and visualization; (2) lightning presentation submission, consisting of a 1- or 2-page submission, for a brief oral presentation at the workshop. Short papers will appear in the workshop proceedings and will be invited to give an oral presentation of 15 to 20 minutes; lightning round submissions that are invited to present at the workshop will have author names and titles included as part of the proceedings.”
Paper submissions are due August 15, 2016.
SC16 takes place November 13-18 in Salt Lake City.
