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.

SESSION: HPCDB 2012 - High-Performance Computing Meets Databases
EVENT TYPE: Workshops
TIME: 9:00AM - 5:30PM

Emerging requirements from HPC applications offer new opportunities for engagement between the database and HPC communities: higher level programming models, combined platforms for simulation, analysis, and visualization, ad hoc interactive query, and petascale data processing. Exascale HPC platforms will share characteristics with large-scale data processing platforms: relatively small main memory per node, relatively slow communication between nodes, and IO a limiting factor. Relevant database techniques in this setting include a rigorous data model, cost-based optimization, declarative query languages, logical and physical data independence – have been applied to new data types (trees, streams, graphs, arrays), new applications (financial markets, image analysis, DNA sequence analysis, social networks) and new platforms (sensor networks, embedded systems, GPGPUs, shared-nothing commodity clusters, cloud platforms). But these techniques have only been minimally explored in the high-performance computing community. In this workshop, we invite position papers that explore the design space between the two communities.
