[Paraview] CFP: 3rd Annual Workshop on In Situ Infrastructures for Enabling Extreme-Scale Analysis and Visualization (ISAV 2017)

Patrick O'Leary patrick.oleary at kitware.com
Thu Jun 8 14:58:47 EDT 2017

In cooperation with SIGHPC and held in conjunction with SC16: The
Conference on High Performance Computing, Networking, Storage and Analysis,
Denver, Colorado, U.S.A.

           ISAV 2017 - http://vis.lbl.gov/Events/ISAV-2017/

        Full-day 9:00 AM - 5:30 PM Sunday November 12th, 2017

Workshop Theme

The considerable interest in the HPC community regarding in situ analysis
visualization is  due to several factors. First is an I/O cost savings,
data is analyzed/visualized while  being generated, without first storing
to a
file system. Second is the potential for increased  accuracy, where fine
temporal sampling of transient analysis might expose some complex behavior
missed in coarse temporal sampling. Third is the ability to use all
resources, CPUs and accelerators, in the computation of analysis products.

The workshop brings together researchers, developers and practitioners from
industry, academia, and government laboratories developing, applying, and
deploying in situ methods in extreme-scale, high performance computing. The
goal is to present research findings, lessons learned, and insights related
developing and applying in situ methods and infrastructure across a range
science and engineering applications in HPC environments; to discuss topics
like opportunities presented by new architectures, existing infrastructure
needs, requirements, and gaps, and experiences to foster and enable in situ
analysis and visualization; to serve as a “center of gravity” for
practitioners, and users/consumers of in situ methods and infrastructure in
HPC space.

Participation/Call for Papers and Oral Presentations

We invite two types of submissions to ISAV 2017: (1) short, 4-page papers
present research results, that identify opportunities or challenges, and
present case studies/best practices for in situ methods/infrastructure in
areas of data management, analysis and visualization; (2) lightning
presentation submission, consisting of a 1- or 2-page submission, for a
oral presentation at the workshop. Short papers will appear in the workshop
proceedings and will be invited to give an oral presentation of 15 to 20
minutes; lightning round submissions that are invited to present at the
workshop will have author names and titles included as part of the
Submissions of both types are welcome that fall within one or more areas of
interest, as follows:

Areas of interest for ISAV, include, but are not limited to:

   In situ infrastructures

      * Current Systems: production quality, research prototypes
      * Opportunities
      * Gaps

   System resources, hardware, and emerging architectures

      * Enabling Hardware
      * Hardware and architectures that provide opportunities for in situ
        processing, such as burst buffers, staging computations on I/O
        sharing cores within a node for both simulation and in situ

   Methods/algorithms/applications/Case studies

      * Best practices
      * Analysis: feature detection, statistical methods, temporal methods,
        geometric methods
      * Visualization: information visualization, scientific visualization,
        time-varying methods
      * Data reduction/compression
      * Examples/case studies of solving a specific science challenge with
        situ methods/infrastructure.


      * Integration:data modeling, software-engineering
      * Resilience: error detection, fault recovery
      * Workflows for supporting complex in situ processing pipelines


      * Preserve important elements
      * Significantly reduce the data size
      * Flexibility for post-processing exploration

Review Process

All submissions will undergo a peer-review process consisting of three
by experts in the field, and evaluated according to relevance to the
workshop theme, technical soundness, creativity, originality, and
impactfulness of
method/results. Lightning round submissions will be evaluated primarily for
relevance to the workshop.

Submission Process

Authors are invited to submit papers of at most 4 pages in PDF format,
excluding references, and lightning presentations of at most 2 pages in PDF
format, excluding references. Papers must be submitted in PDF format
by Adobe Acrobat Reader 5.0 and higher) and formatted for 8.5" x 11" (U.S.
Letter). Submissions are required in the ACM format
(http://www.acm.org/sigs/publications/proceedings-templates) using the
sample-sigconf template and submitted via EasyChair
(https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=isav17). No changes to the
spacing, or font sizes as specified by the style file are allowed.

Papers must be self-contained and provide the technical substance required
the program committee to evaluate their contributions. Submitted papers
be original work that has not appeared in and is not under consideration
for another conference or a journal. See the ACM Prior Publication Policy
more details (http://www.acm.org/publications/policies/). Papers can be
submitted at https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=isav17.

Publication in proceedings, presentation at the workshop

All paper submissions that receive favorable reviews will be included as
of the workshop proceedings, which will be published through SIGHPC along
other SC17 workshop proceedings in the ACM Digital Library and IEEE Xplore.
Lightning round submissions will not be included as part of the proceedings.

Subject to the constraints of workshop length, some subset of the accepted
publications will be invited to give a brief oral presentation at the
The exact number of such presentations and their length will be determined
after the review process has been completed.

Timeline/Important Dates
