Today’s modern applications are producing too large volumes of data to be stored, processed, or transferred efficiently. Data reduction is becoming an indispensable technique in many domains because it can offer a great capability to reduce the data size by one or even two orders of magnitude, significantly saving the memory/storage space, mitigating the I/O burden, reducing communication time, and improving the energy/power efficiency in various parallel and distributed environments, such as high-performance computing (HPC), cloud computing, edge computing, and Internet-of-Things (IoT). An HPC system, for instance, is expected to have a computational capability of floating-point operations per second, and large-scale HPC scientific applications may generate vast volumes of data (several orders of magnitude larger than the available storage space) for post-anlaysis. Moreover, runtime memory footprint and communication could be non-negligible bottlenecks of current HPC systems.

Tackling the big data reduction research requires expertise from computer science, mathematics, and application domains to study the problem holistically, and develop solutions and harden software tools that can be used by production applications. Specifically, the big-data computing community needs to understand a clear yet complex relationship between application design, data analysis and reduction methods, programming models, system software, hardware, and other elements of a next-generation large-scale computing infrastructure, especially given constraints on applicability, fidelity, performance portability, and energy efficiency. New data reduction techniques also need to be explored and developed continuously to suit emerging applications and diverse use cases.

All papers accepted for this workshop will be published in the Workshop Proceedings of IEEE Big Data Conference, made available in the IEEE eXplore digital library.


There are at least three significant research topics that the community is striving to answer:
(1) whether several orders of magnitude of data reduction is possible for extreme-scale sciences;
(2) understanding the trade-off between the performance and accuracy of data reduction;
(3) solutions to effectively reduce data size while preserving the information inside the big datasets.

The goal of this workshop is to provide a focused venue for researchers in all
aspects of data reduction in all related communities to present their research
results, exchange ideas, identify new research directions, and foster new collaborations
within the community.

The focus areas for this workshop include, but are not limited to:

* Data reduction techniques for big data issues in high-performance computing (HPC), cloud computing, Internet-of-Things (IoT), edge computing, machine learning and deep learning, and other big data areas:
- Lossy and lossless compression methods
- Approximate computation methods
- Compressive/compressed sensing methods
- Tensor decomposition methods
- Data deduplication methods
- Domain-specific methods, such as structured and unstructured meshes, particles, tensors
- Accuracy-guarantee data reduction methods
- Optimal design of data reduction methods
* Metrics and infrastructures to evaluate reduction methods and assess fidelity of reduced data
* Benchmark applications and datasets for big data reduction
* Data analysis and visualization techniques leveraging reduced data
* Characterizing the impact of data reduction techniques on applications
* Hardware-software co-design of data reduction
* Trade-offs between accuracy and performance on emerging computing hardware and platforms
* Software, tools, and programming models for managing reduced data
* Runtime systems and supports for data reduction
* Data reduction challenges and solutions in observational and experimental environments
