Dear Colleague,

The submission deadline of the International Workshop on Data-Intensive
Scalable Computing Systems (DISCS) at the ACM/IEEE Supercomputing
Conference (SC'13) is extended to **8/30/2013 (hard deadline)**. We
welcome your submissions, and please find a detailed call for papers
below. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to contact us at
discs2013 at easychair.org.

Thank You.

DISCS-2013 Co-chairs

The International Workshop on Data-Intensive Scalable Computing Systems (DISCS)

November 18, 2013
Colorado Convention Center, Denver CO, USA

Held in conjunction with SC13: The International Conference for
High Performance Computing, Networking, Storage and Analysis

In cooperation with ACM SIGHPC, http://sighpc.org


* Scope of the Workshop *

Existing high performance computing (HPC) systems are designed primarily
for workloads requiring high rates of computation. However, the
widening performance gap between processors and storage, and trends
toward higher data intensity in scientific and engineering applications,
suggest there is a need to rethink HPC system architectures, programming
models, runtime systems, and tools with a focus on data intensive
computing. The Second International Workshop on Data Intensive Scalable
Computing Systems (DISCS) provides a forum for researchers and other
interested people in the areas of data intensive computing and high
performance parallel computing to exchange ideas and discuss approaches
for addressing the challenges facing Big Data or data intensive
computing at large scale.

* Keynote *

Dr. Lucy Nowell will deliver the keynote address for DISCS-2013. Dr.
Nowell is program manager for Data and Visualization within the Advanced
Scientific Computing Research program, Office of Science, U.S.
Department of Energy.

* Topics of Interest *

The topics of interest for the DISCS-2013 workshop include, but are not
limited to:

* HPC system architectures for data intensive applications
  -> Data-centric system architectures
  -> I/O systems and architectures
  -> System area networks
  -> Power efficient systems
* Programming models supporting data intensive applications
  -> Data-centric programming models
  -> MPI extensions for data intensive applications
  -> GAS/PGAS programming model extensions for data intensive applications
  -> Non-traditional programming languages/methodologies
  -> Other programming models for data intensive applications
* Runtime systems supporting data intensive applications
  -> Communication systems for supporting data intensive applications
  -> Data compression and de-duplication
  -> Caching and prefetching
  -> Reliability and fault tolerance
  -> Data integrity and consistency
* Productivity tools supporting data intensive applications
  -> Data analytic tools
  -> Tracing and trace analysis tools
  -> Data mining and knowledge discovery tools
  -> Computational, mathematical and statistical techniques
  -> Data and tools supporting such techniques
  -> Data visualization techniques and tools supporting such techniques

* Journal Special Issue *

The authors of papers accepted to the DISCS-2013 workshop will be
invited to submit manuscripts for a special issue of the journal
Parallel Computing: Systems & Applications, guest edited by the
DISCS-2013 workshop chairs. The manuscripts submitted to the journal
will be reviewed and selected based on the journal's acceptance
criteria. The target submission deadline for the journal papers is
January 18, 2014.

* Submission Instructions *

Submissions should be unpublished work. Submissions should be in PDF
format on US Letter sized paper (8.5"x11") with not more than 6 pages
(all inclusive) formatted according to the double-column format of the
ACM SIG Proceedings "Option 1: LaTeX2e - Strict Adherence to SIGS style"
template. Margins and fonts should not be modified from this style. All
accepted papers will appear in the workshop proceedings in the ACM
Digital Library.
