Over the past five years, the United States, the European Union and Japan have each moved aggressively to develop their own plans for achieving exascale computing by the 2020-2022 period. While these initiatives have focused on the well known challenges of exascale computing for hardware and software architectures, the concurrent emergence of “Big Data”  methodologies in a wide variety of scientific fields has disrupted the entire research landscape on which plans for exascale computing must play out. The recently announced NSCI (National Strategic Computing Initiative) by the White House is an exemplar of the needed convergence, but there is still work to be done. The workshop series on Big Data and Extreme-scale Computing (BDEC) is premised on the need to systematically map out the ways in which the major issues associated with Big Data intersect and interact with plans for achieving Exascale Computing. The goal is to help develop a plan for international cooperation and convergence in designing and developing the next generation of software infrastructure necessary to support both Big Data and Extreme Computing for scientific discovery. The new focus will thus be on “pathways to convergence”. EXDCI will also be in charge of organizing the BDEC Frankfurt 2016 event that will take place from 15-17th June 2016. This is a closed meeting.
