The International Workshop on Analysis of Large-scale Disparate Data

IEEE International Conference on Big Data 2018

Introduction to Workshop

The purpose of the Workshop is to bring together researchers, developers and practitioners in data science and high performance computing to identify common interests, requirements, capabilities, and solutions in the analysis of large-scale, disparate data. The Department of Defense science & technology and test & evaluation communities produce massive, heterogeneous, distributed data sets requiring new approaches for integration and analysis, with a rapidly growing requirement for time-critical analysis and how to use high performance computing resources for them. Testing produces a wide range of data sources and data types that must be integrated, analyzed and the results applied for assessing performance, effectiveness, suitability, survivability and safety. Research is required to harness software frameworks, analysis tools, high performance computing, heterogeneous display technologies, and distributed, dynamic computing capability to meet these needs.

Topics

Visual Analytics Ecology

  • Reconfigurable and composable data-centric visualization systems
  • Scalable platforms from handheld and wearable to large scale tiled displays
  • Hardware and software agnostic visual analysis
  • Heterogeneous visualization systems, e.g., synchronized 2-D, 3-D, animations, virtual/augmented/mixed reality
  • Interactive query and knowledge discovery

Use-Inspired Analytics

  • Shaping the analysis environment based on practical approaches to problem solving
  • Individual applications and user-specific workflows driving composable computational platforms, software tools, heterogeneous display technology, and visualization frameworks
  • Time-critical applications
  • Relationship between humans and computing
  • Enabling researchers to educe meaning from an avalanche of data
  • Communicating reality and validity of data in a persuasive way
