Workshop Scope and Goals

While the purpose of visualization and analysis is insight, realizing 
that objective requires solving complex problems related to crafting or 
adapting algorithms and applications to take advantage of evolving 
architectures, and to solve increasingly complex data understanding 
problems for ever larger and more complex data. These architectures, and 
the systems from which they are built, have increasingly deep memory 
hierarchies, increasing concurrency, decreasing relative 
per-core/per-node I/O capacity, lessening memory per core, are 
increasingly prone to failures, and face power limitations.

The purpose of this workshop is to bring together researchers, 
engineers, and architects of data-intensive computing technologies, 
which span visualization, analysis, and data management, to present and 
discuss research topics germane to high performance data analysis and 
visualization. Specifically, this workshop focuses on research topics 
related to adapting/creating algorithms, technologies, and applications 
for use on emerging computational architectures and platforms.

The workshop format includes traditional research papers (8-10 pages) 
for in-depth topics, short papers (4 pages) for works in progress, and a 
panel discussion.

Proceedings of the workshops are distributed at the conference and are 
submitted for inclusion in the IEEE Xplore Digital Library after the 

We invite papers on original, unpublished research in the following 
topic areas under the general umbrella of high performance visualization 
and analysis:

- Increasing concurrency at the node level, and at the systemwide level.
- Optimizations for improving performance, e.g., decreasing runtime, 
leveraging a deepening memory hierarchy, reducing data movement, 
reducing power consumption.
- Applications of visualization and analysis, where there is a strong 
thematic element related to being able to solve a larger or more complex 
problem because of algorithmic or design advances that take advantage of 
increasing concurrency, architectural features, etc.
- Data analysis and/or visualization systems/designs/architectures 
having an emphasis upon scalability, resilience, 
high-throughput/high-capacity, and that are able to take advantage of 
emerging architectures.
