Title:  Moving from Data to Insights – Addressing Data Challenges in Simulation-based Science


Data-related challenges are quickly dominating computational and data-enabled sciences, and are limiting the potential impact of end-to-end coupled application formulations enabled by current high-performance distributed computing environments. These data-intensive application workflows present significant data management, transport and processing challenges, involving dynamic coordination, interactions and data-coupling between multiple application process that run at scale on different high performance resources, and with services for monitoring, analysis and visualization and archiving. In this presentation I will explore the data grand challenges of simulation-based science application workflows and investigate how solutions based on managed data pipelines, in-memory data-staging, in-situ placement and execution, and in-transit data processing can be used to address some of these data challenges at peta scale and beyond.


Manish Parashar is a Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Rutgers University. He is also a founding Director of the Center for Autonomic Computing and The Applied Software Systems Laboratory (TASSL), and an Associate Director of the Rutgers Center for Information Assurance (RUCIA). Manish received a BE degree from Bombay University, India and MS and Ph.D. degrees from Syracuse University. His research interests are in the broad area of parallel and distributed computing and include Computational and Data-Enabled Science and Engineering, Autonomic Computing, and Power/Energy Management. A key focus of his research is on addressing the complexity or large-scale systems and applications through programming abstractions and systems. Manish has published over 350 technical papers, serves on the editorial boards and organizing committees of a large number of journals and international conferences and workshops, and has deployed several software systems that are widely used.  He has also received numerous awards and is a Fellow of IEEE/IEEE Computer Society and a Senior Member of ACM.
