ISAV 2018: In Situ Infrastructures for Enabling Extreme-Scale Analysis and

Held in conjunction with SC18: The International Conference on High
Performance Computing, Networking, Storage and Analysis, Dallas, Texas,

ISAV 2018 --  <http://dav.lbl.gov/events/ISAV2018/>


Full-day 9:00 AM - 5:30 PM Monday 12 Nov 2018

Workshop Theme

The considerable interest in the HPC community regarding in situ analysis
and visualization is  due to several factors. First is an I/O cost savings,
where data is analyzed/visualized while  being generated, without first
storing to a file system. Second is the potential for increased  accuracy,
where fine temporal sampling of transient analysis might expose some complex
behavior missed in coarse temporal sampling. Third is the ability to use all
available resources, CPUs and accelerators, in the computation of analysis


The workshop brings together researchers, developers and practitioners from
industry, academia, and government laboratories developing, applying, and
deploying in situ methods in extreme-scale, high performance computing. The
goal is to present research findings, lessons learned, and insights related
to developing and applying in situ methods and infrastructure across a range
of science and engineering applications in HPC environments; to discuss
topics like opportunities presented by new architectures, existing
infrastructure needs, requirements, and gaps, and experiences to foster and
enable in situ analysis and visualization; to serve as a "center of gravity"
for researchers, practitioners, and users/consumers of in situ methods and
infrastructure in the HPC space.

Participation/Call for Papers and Oral Presentations

We invite two types of submissions to ISAV 2018: (1) short, 4-page papers
that present research results, that identify opportunities or challenges,
and that present case studies/best practices for in situ
methods/infrastructure in the areas of data management, analysis and
visualization; (2) lightning presentation submission, consisting of a 1- or
2-page submission, for a brief oral presentation at the workshop. Short
papers will appear in the workshop proceedings and will be invited to give
an oral presentation of 15 to 20 minutes; lightning round submissions that
are invited to present at the workshop will have author names and titles
included as part of the proceedings. Submissions of both types are welcome
that fall within one or more areas of interest, as follows: 


Areas of interest for ISAV, include, but are not limited to:

In situ infrastructures

*	Current Systems: production quality, research prototypes
*	Opportunities
*	Gaps

System resources, hardware, and emerging architectures

*	Enabling Hardware
*	Hardware and architectures that provide opportunities for In situ
processing, such as burst buffers, staging computations on I/O nodes,
sharing cores within a node for both simulation and in situ processing

Methods/algorithms/applications/Case studies

*	Best practices
*	Analysis: feature detection, statistical methods, temporal methods,
geometric methods
*	Visualization: information visualization, scientific visualization,
time-varying methods
*	Data reduction/compression
*	Examples/case studies of solving a specific science challenge with
in situ methods/infrastructure.


*	Integration:data modeling, software-engineering
*	Resilience: error detection, fault recovery
*	Workflows for supporting complex in situ processing pipelines


*	Preserve important elements
*	Significantly reduce the data size
*	Flexibility for post-processing exploration

Review Process

All submissions will undergo a peer-review process consisting of three
reviews by experts in the field, and evaluated according to relevance to the
workshop theme, technical soundness, creativity, originality, and
impactfulness of method/results. Lightning round submissions will be
evaluated primarily for relevance to the workshop.

Submission Process

Authors are invited to submit papers of at most 4 pages in PDF format,
excluding references, and lightning presentations of at most 2 pages in PDF
format, excluding references. Papers must be submitted in PDF format
(readable by Adobe Acrobat Reader 5.0 and higher) and formatted for 8.5" x
11" (U.S. Letter). 

A Latex template will be provided via the submission website,
https://submissions.supercomputing.org, and via workshop website,
<http://dav.lbl.gov/events/ISAV2018/> http://dav.lbl.gov/events/ISAV2018/.

We believe that reproducible science is essential, and that SC should be a
leader in this effort. As a consequence ISAV 2018 participates in the SC
reproducibility initiative and encourages submitters to include an appendix
with reproducibility information. While we will not disqualify a paper based
on information provided or not provided in this appendix, nor if the
appendix is not available, the availability and quality of an appendix will
be used in ranking a paper. For more information, see the
<http://dav.lbl.gov/events/ISAV2018/reproducibility-faq.html> ISAV 2018
reproducibility FAQ.

Papers must be self-contained and provide the technical substance required
for the program committee to evaluate their contributions. Submitted papers
must be original work that has not appeared in and is not under
consideration for another conference or a journal. See the
<http://www.acm.org/publications/policies/> ACM Prior Publication Policy for
more details. Papers can be submitted at

Publication in proceedings, presentation at the workshop

All paper submissions that receive favorable reviews will be included as
part of the workshop proceedings. Lightning round submission will not be
included as part of the proceedings.


Subject to the constraints of workshop length, some subset of the accepted
publications will be invited to give a brief oral presentation at the
workshop. The exact number of such presentations and their length will be
determined after the review process has been completed.
