Invitation to workshop on Extreme Data: Demands, Technologies, and Services

The Jülich Supercomputing Centre invites scientists from different fields to participate in a 2-day workshop on scientific extreme data. The workshop will be held at the Jülich Supercomputing Centre in Germany from Tuesday, Sept 18, 09:00 h to Wednesday, Sept 19, 13:00 h.

About the workshop

Exascale computing will require exascale data handling. Earth system sciences and other application areas (e.g. astrophysics, genomics, photon science) are facing rapidly growing challenges due to the fact that observation systems and numerical models are producing data of unprecedented volumes and at unprecedented rates. This workshop will bring together scientists from different fields to discuss the challenges of extreme data demands, technology and services.
