                 CALL FOR PAPERS
                 ****************
          The International Workshop on
Data-Intensive Scalable Computing Systems (DISCS)
          http://data.cs.ttu.edu/discs/

          November 16th, 2012, Salt Lake City
              In conjunction with the
 2012 ACM/IEEE Supercomputing Conference (SC'12)

                 *********************
                 Scope of the Workshop
                 *********************
High-performance computing (HPC) is a major strategic tool
for science, engineering, and industry. Existing HPC systems,
however, are largely designed and developed for computation-
intensive applications with a computing-centric paradigm. With
the emerging and timely needs of supporting data-intensive
scientific discovery and innovations, there is a need of
rethinking the system architectures, programming models, runtime
systems, and tools available for data-intensive HPC. The DISCS
workshop provides a forum for researchers and developers in the
high-performance computing, data-intensive computing, and
parallel computing fields to take the Big Data challenges
together and present innovative ideas, experiences, and latest
developments that help address these challenges.

                   ******************
                   Topics of Interest
                   ******************
The focus areas of the DISCS-2012 workshop include, but are not
limited to:
    -> HPC system architectures for supporting data intensive
       applications
         # Data-centric system architectures
         # I/O systems and architectures
         # System area networks
         # Power efficient systems for data intensive applications
    -> Programming models for supporting data intensive
       applications
         # Data-centric programming models
         # MPI extensions for data intensive applications
         # GAS/PGAS/OpenMP programming model extensions for data-
           intensive applications
         # New programming languages/methodologies for data-
           intensive HPC
    -> Runtime systems for supporting data intensive applications
         # Communication systems for supporting data intensive
           applications
         # Data compression and deduplication
         # Caching and prefetching
         # Data integrity and consistency
    -> Tools for supporting data intensive applications
         # Data analytic, tracing, and trace analysis tools
         # Data mining and knowledge discovery tools
         # Computational, mathematical and statistical techniques
           and tools
         # Data visualization techniques and tools

                      ***************
                      Important Dates
                      ***************

                   ***********************
                   Submission Instructions
                   ***********************
Submissions should be in PDF format in U.S. letter size paper,
and should be formatted according to the IEEE standard double-
column single-space format. They should not exceed 5 pages (all-
inclusive). Please access the IEEE site for the manuscript template.

Please visit the following site to make paper submissions:
https://www.easychair.org/account/signin.cgi?conf=discs2012

All accepted papers will appear in the SC-2012 digital proceedings
in the IEEE digital library.

                   *********************
                   Journal Special Issue
                   *********************
DISCS-2012 workshop papers will be invited to extend the manuscripts
to be considered for a journal Special Issue on Data-Intensive High
Performance Computing of the Cluster Computing by Springer, edited
by Yong Chen and Xian-He Sun. The target journal special issue
submission deadline is Jan. 16th, 2013.

********************************************************************************
The hpc-announce mailing list has been setup to have a common mailing
list to share information with respect to upcoming HPC related
events. You are included in this mailing list based on your
participation or interest in a previous HPC conference or other event.

The purpose for providing a single mailing list is to allow
participants to easily identify such emails, and handle them
appropriately. Some options include:

1. If you feel that the number of such emails is too many, filter them
to less-frequently-read folders in your email client.

2. Change your subscription to a digest option
(https://lists.mcs.anl.gov/mailman/listinfo/hpc-announce) which will
consolidate emails sent that week into a single summary email.

3. Finally, if you do not wish to receive any emails from hpc-announce,
you can unsubscribe from the mailing list
(https://lists.mcs.anl.gov/mailman/listinfo/hpc-announce). Once
unsubscribed, we guarantee that you will not be added back in through
participation in a different HPC related conference or event. You will
need to send an email to hpc-announce-owner at mcs.anl.gov to be added
back on.

If you need help with any of the above, please email us at
hpc-announce-owner at mcs.anl.gov.
