High Performance Data Analysis and Visualization (HPDAV) 2016
An IPDPS 2016 Workshop
23 May 2016

29 March 2016 Link to the HPDAV 2016 program/agenda

Workshop Theme

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 conference.

Paper Topics

We invite papers on original, unpublished research in the following topic areas under the general umbrella of high performance visualization and analysis:

We anticipate a portion of the program to be dedicated to 20-minute research talks, and a portion to be dedicated to 10-minute short talks.

Paper format:

Panel Discussion

We solicit proposals for a panel, that would present position statements on topics related to HPDAV and would be of interest to a broad audience.

Guidelines for panel submissions:

This workshop anticipates having one panel discussion, which would consist of 40 minutes of panelist presentations and 20 minutes of audience discussion.

Peer review process

All submissions – long papers, short papers, panel proposal – will undergo a peer-review process consisting of at least three reviewers.

All papers, both short and full-length, will be evaluated on the following criteria:

Important dates

Presentation at the workshop

It is expected that each accepted submission will be presented at the workshop.
