The 9th International Workshop on Data Analysis Reduction for Big Scientific Data (DRBSD-9) 
in Conjunction with SC’23, November 13, 2023, Denver, CO
As the speed gap between compute and storage continues to exist and widen, the increasing data volume and velocity pose major challenges for big data applications. This demands new research and software tools that can further reduce data by several orders of magnitude, taking advantage of new architectures and hardware available on next generation systems. This international workshop on data analysis & reduction is a response to this renewed research direction and will provide a focused venue for researchers to present their research results, exchange ideas, identify new research directions, and foster new collaborations within the community. Topics of interest include but are not limited to:
• Data reduction methods for scientific data including:
o       Data deduplication methods
o       Motif-specific methods (structured and unstructured meshes, particles, tensors, …)
o       Methods with accuracy guarantees
o       Feature/QoI-preserving reduction
o       Optimal design of data reduction methods
o       Compressed sensing and singular value decomposition
• Metrics to assess reduction quality and provide feedback 
• Data analysis over extreme-scale datasets
o       AI/ML methods
o       Surrogate/reduced-order models
o       Feature extraction
o       Visualization techniques
o       Artifact removal during reconstruction
o       Methods that take advantage of the reduced data
• Data analysis and reduction co-design 
o       Methods for using accelerators
o       Accuracy and performance trade-offs on current and emerging hardware
o       New programming models for managing reduced data
o       Runtime systems for data reduction
• Large-scale code coupling and workflows
• Experience of applying data reduction and analysis in practical applications or use-cases
o       State of the practice
o       Application use-cases which can drive the community to develop MiniApps

Papers should be submitted electronically on the SC submission system
• Paper submission must be in IEEE format. 
• DRBSD-9 will accept full papers (limited to 8 pages excluding references) and extended abstracts (2 pages, except references and appendix).
• DRBSD-9 encourages submissions to provide artifact description & evaluation.  Details: 
• Detailed submission URL will be provided once the workshop is accepted by SC.
Submitted papers will be evaluated by at least 3 reviewers based upon technical merits and the accepted paper will be published with IEEE/ACM through IEEE TCHPC.

Tentative Planned Timeline
• Selection of program committee members: June 3, 2023
• Paper deadline: August 26, 2023 (AoE)
• Author notification: September 13, 2023
• Camera ready final papers: September 23, 2023 (AoE)
• Selection of invited talks and panelists: September 30, 2023
Expected Outcome
The goal of this workshop is to provide a focused venue for researchers in all aspects of data reduction and analysis to present their research results, exchange ideas, identify new research directions, and foster new collaborations within the community.
