Rosa M. Badia will present the project with a keynote titled “Easy development and execution of workfows with eFlows4HPC” during the 21st International Symposium on Parallel and Distributed Computing (ISPDC 2022), that will take place 11 -13 July 2022 in Basel, Switzerland.
Distributed computing infrastructures are evolving from traditional models to environments that involve sensors, edge devices, instruments, etc, and, as well, high-end computing systems such as clouds and HPC clusters. A key aspect is how to describe and develop the applications to be executed in such platforms.
What is more, the use of data analytics and artificial intelligence in general is on high demand in current HPC applications. However, the methodologies to develop such workflows that integrate HPC simulations and data analytics is not well integrated. eFlows4HPC project aims at providing workflow software stack and an additional set of services to enable the integration of HPC simulations and modelling with big data analytics and machine learning in scientific and industrial applications. The project is also developing the HPC Workflows as a Service (HPCWaaS) methodology that aims at providing tools to simplify the development, deployment, execution and reuse of workflows. The project will demonstrate its advances through three application Pillars with high industrial and social relevance: manufacturing, climate and urgent computing for natural hazards; these applications will help to prove how the realization of forthcoming efficient HPC and data-centric applications can be developed with new workflow technologies. The talk will present the motivation, challenges and project workplan.
About ISPDC 2022
Parallel and Distributed Computing (PDC) is an important research area today and has a strong contribution to the advancements in science, engineering, and society at large. Its evolution is characterized by the continuous development of new approaches in the modeling, design, analysis, evaluation, and programming of parallel and distributed computing applications and systems. The goal of the 21st International Symposium on Parallel and Distributed Computing (ISPDC 2022) is to bring together researchers, engineers, and practitioners for the purpose of sharing their experiences in the development of new algorithms, applications, architectures for parallel and distributed computing, as well as modeling and simulation, visualization, and data analytics.
