There is no doubt in the industry and research community that the importance of data intensive computing has been raising and will continue to be the foremost fields of research. This raise brings up many research issues, in forms of capturing and accessing data effectively and fast, processing it while still achieving high performance and high throughput, and storing it efficiently for future use.

In a widely distributed environment, data is often not locally accessible and has thus to be remotely retrieved and stored. While traditional distributed systems work well for computation that requires limited data handling, they may fail in unexpected ways when the computation accesses, creates, and moves large amounts of data especially over wide-area networks. Further, data accessed and created is often poorly described, lacking both metadata and provenance. Scientists, researchers, and application developers are often forced to solve basic data-handling issues, such as physically locating data, how to access it, and/or how to move it to visualization and/or compute resources for further analysis.

This year, we open new directions related to the preservation of data in cooperation with the PREDON group. The preservation of scientific data remains nevertheless a challenge due to the complexity of the data structure, the fragility of the custom-made software environments as well as the lack of rigorous approaches in workflows and algorithms.

This workshop focuses on the challenges imposed by high performance data-intensive applications on distributed systems, and on the different state-of-the-art solutions proposed to overcome these challenges. It brought together the collaborative and distributed computing community and the data management community in an effort to generate productive conversations on the planning, management, and scheduling of data handling tasks and data storage resources.

After the success of HPDIC 2012, 2013 and 2014, the 2015 edition (HPDIC2015) is a forum for professionals involved in data intensive computing and high performance computing. The goal of this workshop is to bridge the gap between theory and practice in the field of high performance data intensive computing and bring together researchers and practitioners from academia and industry working on high performance data intensive computing technologies. We believe that high performance data intensive computing will benefit from close interaction between researchers and industry practitioners, so that the research can inform current deployments and deployment challenges can inform new research. In support of this, HPDIC2015 will provide a forum for both academics and industry practitioners to share their ideas and experiences, discuss challenges and recent advances, introduce developments and tools, identify open issues, present applications and enhancements for data intensive computing systems and report state-of-the-art and in-progress research, leverage each other's perspectives, and identify new/emerging trends in this important area.

We therefore cordially invite contributions that investigate these issues, introduce new execution environments, apply performance evaluations and show the applicability to science and enterprise applications. We welcome various different kinds of papers that could formalize, simplify and optimize all the aspects of existing data intensive applications in science, engineering and business. We particularly encourage the submission of position papers that describe novel research directions and work that is in its formative stages, and papers about practical experiences and lessons learned from production systems.

Papers of applied research, industrial experience reports, work-in-progress and vision papers with different criteria for each category that describe recent advances and efforts in the design and development of data intensive computing, functionalities and capabilities that will benefit many applications are also solicited.

We believe that our workshop should act as a cross-fertilization of the opinions of very different communities.

List of topics

Submission Instructions

Please submit full papers in PDF or doc format via the submission system. Do not email submissions. Papers must be written in English.

The complete submission must be no longer than ten (10) pages. It should be typeset in two-column format in 10 point type on 12 point (single-spaced) leading. References should not be set in a smaller font. Submissions that violate any of these restrictions may not be reviewed. The limits will be interpreted fairly strictly, and no extensions will be given for reformatting. Final author manuscripts will be 8.5" x 11" (two columns IEEE format), not exceeding 10 pages; max 2 extra pages allowed at additional cost.

The names of authors and their affiliations should be included on the first page of the submission.

Simultaneous submission of the same work to multiple venues, submission of previously published work, or plagiarism constitutes dishonesty or fraud.

Reviewing of full papers will be done by the program committee, assisted by outside referees. Accepted papers will be shepherded through an editorial review process by a member of the program committee.

By submitting a paper, you agree that at least one of the authors will attend the workshop to present it. Otherwise, the paper will be excluded from the digital library of IEEE.

Please submit papers via EasyChair for HPDIC2015 (in case of problems, please send emails to the workshop chairs)
