The Fourth International Workshop on Data Intensive Distributed Computing (DIDC 2011) will be held in conjunction with the 20th International Symposium on High Performance Distributed Computing (HPDC 2011), in San Jose, California.
Workshop program is available here..
This workshop will focus on the challenges imposed by data-intensive applications on distributed systems, and on the different state-of-the-art solutions proposed to overcome these challenges. It will bring together the collaborative and distributed computing community and the data management community in an effort to generate productive conversations on the planning, management, and scheduling of data handling tasks and data storage resources.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Data-intensive applications and their challenges
- Data clouds, data grids, and data centers
- New architectures for data-intenstive computing
- Data virtualization, interoperability, and federation
- Data-aware toolkits and middleware
- Dynamic data-driven science
- Data collection, provenance, and metadata
- Network support for data-intensive computing
- Remote and distributed visualization of large scale data
- Data archives, digital libraries, and preservation
- Service oriented architectures for data-intensive computing
- Data privacy and protection in a collaborative environment
- Peer-to-peer data movement and data streaming
- Scientific breakthrough enabled by DIDC
- Future research challenges in data-intensive computing
