This symposium considers combining two methodologies— collaborative codesign and 
data-driven analysis—to realize the full potential of supercomputing. Our scope 
includes applications, system software, workflows, health of hardware. Today’s HPC 
centers store vast sums of information, yet using this data presents demanding 
challenges. Much of the data-driven challenge has to do with discovering, accessing, 
and analyzing the right data. Codesign also presents formidable challenges. For 
example, how can a codesign development use the data collected on current systems 
to facilitate the design of next-generation supercomputers and successfully support 
our upcoming environments. Quantitative codesign offers a collaborative evidence-based 
approach to address our existing needs and our upcoming ambitions. This symposium 
will bring together leaders in the field to review current efforts across centers 
and discuss areas that show potential.
This year’s focus will be on opportunities and challenges due to the explosion of
New architectural directions and new paradigms for HPC. However, submissions targeting 
any relevant topic are welcomed. Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):
  * Effective ways and new approaches to employ center-collected data in the HPC 
    software stack.
  * Requirements for effective codesign. What processes and strategies result in 
    effective codesign collaborations?
  * Finding the right set of data to collect, filter, and analyze. Efforts to address 
    this problem across different groups and centers.
  * Providing effective analysis in a timely manner. Efforts to address this problem 
    across different groups and centers.
  * Novel interactions based on data-centric analysis with multiple HPC subcommunities 
    (e.g., vendors, operations staff, end users, facilities planning, security staff, ...).
  * Success stories involving privacy and security issues associated with data 
    originating from many diverse systems.
Paper submission and publication
The workshop welcomes position papers. Position papers should be no more than 2 
single-spaced pages (including figures, tables, and references) using a 11-point font 
on 8.5x11 inch pages (US Letter).
