ESSA 2022: 3rd International Workshop on Extreme-Scale Storage and Analysis
  (Formarly HPS: International Workshop on High Performance Storage)

          Held June 3rd 2022 in conjunction with IPDPS 2022

ESSA succeeds the international workshop on High Performance Storage
(HPS) to enlarge the scope to include data processing and analytics

Our goals in the ESSA Workshop are to bring together expert
researchers and developers in data-related areas such as storage, I/O,
processing and analytics on extreme scale infrastructures including
HPC systems, clouds, edge systems or hybrid combinations of these, to
discuss advances and possible solutions to the new challenges we
face. We expect the ESSA Workshop to result in lively interactions
over a wide range of interesting topics about high performance storage,
data processing, and analysis.

** Keynote Speaker

Robert B. Ross (Argonne National Laboratory)

Robert Ross is a Senior Computer Scientist at Argonne National
Laboratory and a Senior Fellow at the Northwestern-Argonne Institute
for Science and Engineering. He is the Director of the DOE SciDAC
RAPIDS Institute for Computer Science, Data, and Artificial
Intelligence. Rob’s research interests are in system software for high
performance computing systems, in particular distributed storage
systems and libraries for I/O and message passing. Rob received his
Ph.D. in Computer Engineering from Clemson University in 2000. Rob was
a recipient of the 2004 Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists
and Engineers and the 2020 Ernest Orlando Lawrence Award, and he was
named an ACM Fellow in 2021.

** Invited Speakers

Lavanya Ramakrishnan (Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory)

Lavanya Ramakrishnan is a Senior Scientist and Division Deputy in the
Scientific Data Division at Lawrence Berkeley National Lab. Her
research interests are in building software tools for computational
and data-intensive science with a focus on workflow, resource, and
data management. More recently, she has been using user research
methods to understand as well as verify/validate the context of use
and social challenges that often impact tool design and
development. She currently leads several project teams that consist of
a mix of social scientists, software engineers, and computer

Johann Lombardi (Intel Corporation)

Johann Lombardi is a senior principal engineer in the Super Computing
Group (SCG) at Intel. He is the lead architect of the Distributed
Asynchronous Object Store (DAOS). Prior to DAOS, Johann led the
sustaining team in charge of the Lustre filesystem worldwide support
for 5 years at Cluster Filesystem, Sun, Oracle and Whamcloud. He then
transitioned to research programs (Fast Forward, ESSIO & Path Forward)
at Intel to lead the development of a nextgen storage stack for
Exascale HPC, Big Data and AI that resulted into DAOS.
