Let's face the challenges of extreme data

Exascale computing will require exascale data handling. Earth system sciences and other application areas (e.g. astrophysics, genomics, photon science) are facing rapidly growing challenges due to the fact that observation systems and numerical models are producing data of unprecedented volumes and at unprecedented rates. This workshop brought together scientists from different fields to discuss the challenges of extreme data demands, technology and services.
