Brainstorm HPCD Workshop 1

Brainstorm HPCD Workshop | Jan. 21-23, 2015 | Sheraton Dallas Hotel, Dallas, Texas

The first BrainstormHPCD workshop is part of a community-driven effort to gather comprehensive information about the needs of the National Science Foundation-sponsored science and engineering research community for advanced capacity through capability computing, including data-intensive and compute-intensive resources. The workshop will focus on the research community needs at the high end of the spectrum and will attempt to articulate the value, contributions and impacts of at-scale computing for the advancement of science, engineering, and other research. It is expected that the workshop will provide valuable input to the National Research Council Committee on Future Directions for NSF Advanced Computing Infrastructure to Support U.S. Science in 2017-2020.

Along with application leaders confronting diverse computing and analysis challenges, attendees will include members from industry and government with expertise in algorithms, computer system architecture, and applications.

We are asking each attendee to submit a two-page position paper outlining a key issue. Send your position papers to These position papers will be posted on the workshop website so that all workshop participants can read them in advance.

At the workshop we will work to take the individual position papers and formulate consistent input and information for the NRC committee and NSF. A report summarizing the discussion and findings will be produced after the workshop and submitted to the NRC Committee and NSF along with the individual position papers. To be most impactful, this report is needed by the middle of February 2015.
