SCHEDULE: NOV 10-16, 2012
When viewing the Technical Program schedule, on the far righthand side is a column labeled "PLANNER." Use this planner to build your own schedule. Once you select an event and want to add it to your personal schedule, just click on the calendar icon of your choice (outlook calendar, ical calendar or google calendar) and that event will be stored there. As you select events in this manner, you will have your own schedule to guide you through the week.

We present a query processing framework for the efficient evaluation of spatial filters on large numerical simulation datasets stored in a data-intensive cluster. Previously, filtering of large numerical simulations stored in scientific databases has been impractical owing to the immense data requirements. Rather, filtering is done during simulation or by loading snapshots into the aggregate memory of an HPC cluster. Our system performs filtering within the database and supports large filter widths. We present two complementary methods of execution: I/O streaming computes a batch filter query in a single sequential pass using incremental evaluation of decomposable kernels, summed volumes generates an intermediate data set and evaluates each filtered value by accessing only eight points in this dataset. We dynamically choose between these methods depending upon workload characteristics. The system allows us to perform filters against large data sets with little overhead: query performance scales with the cluster’s aggregate I/O throughput.
