DIMACS/CCICADA Interdisciplinary Seminar Series Presents

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

Speaker: Manish Parashar, Director of the Rutgers Discovery
         Informatics Institute 

Date: Monday, November 26, 2012 11:00am - 12:00pm

Location: DIMACS Center, CoRE Bldg, Room 431, Rutgers University                 
             Busch Campus, Piscataway, NJ


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 petascale and beyond.

Bio: Manish Parashar is Professor of Electrical and Computer
Engineering at Rutgers University. He is the founding Director of the
Rutgers Discovery Informatics Institute (RDI2) and of the NSF Cloud
and Autonomic Computing Center (CAC). 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 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
Fellow of IEEE/IEEE Computer Society and Senior Member of ACM.
