CHANGES Workshop 2013
The second workshop in the CHANGES series took place from 10 to 12 September 2013 in Chicago. CHANGES stands for CHinese-AmericaN-German E-Science and cyberinfrastructure. Partners are the Computer Network Information Center (CNIC) of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), the National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA) at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC) and the Jülich Supercomputing Centre at Forschungszentrum Jülich. CHANGES provides a high-level platform to discuss the latest trends in supercomputing, sophisticated information techniques and interdisciplinary applications. It does not only consider the issues of the partner institutions but also takes national topics into account. This workshop addressed the topic Data Management, Analytics and Visualization.
About 40 well-known experts were invited to discuss the latest data-related challenges in their research fields. Besides the presentations, the workshop provided a forum for bi- and trilateral cooperations on student exchanges and mutual research projects. Special emphasis was placed on the question of how to select promising common research projects and how to secure funding for them.
