                 CALL FOR PAPERS
          The International Workshop on
Data-Intensive Scalable Computing Systems (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
         # 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
         # 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
         # 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
