Workshop Scope:

Science is making the transition from Data-poor to Data-rich. Where in the past only limited experimental data was compared to big amounts of simulation-generated data at Supercomputing centers, we now see those centers transform into big data stream processing nodes. Wide area networks are now an integral and essential part of the data driven Supercomputing ecosystem connecting information-sources, data-stores, processing, simulation, and visualization and user communities together. Further networks are required to connect research instruments such as photon sources, and large visualization displays.

Networks for data-intensive science have more extreme requirements than general-purpose networks. These requirements closely impact the design of processor interconnects in supercomputers/cluster computers, but they also impact campus networks, regional networks and national backbone networks.

The developments in network technology are tremendous. Speeds of many 100’s of Gigabit and deep programmability of network infrastructure are now common. This enables a fundamentally different approach of integrating networks in Supercomputing applications.

This workshop encourages research papers that address one or more of these needs that are essential in the scientific discovery process. This workshop will also serve as a platform for participants in SCinet to present experimental papers on their latest designs and solutions. SCinet is the high-speed network engine of the SC conference. This network is state of the art, connects many demonstrators of big science data processing infrastructures at the highest line speeds, deploys the newest technologies available, and demonstrates novel functionality. The show floor network connects to many laboratories and universities worldwide using high-bandwidth connections.

This workshop brings together SCinet engineers and network researchers to share challenges and potential solutions. Their novel ideas will allow future SCinets to stretch their deployed technologies and further drive new network research. We invite papers that propose new and novel techniques that increase the capacity and functionality of scientific computing and wide-area networks.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:
• High-speed network protocols
• Network architectures
• Securing high-speed networks
• High performance data transfer applications and techniques
• Science DMZs and other campus network constructs
• Software-defined networking , OpenFlow and NFV
• Optical networking
• Network monitoring and traffic analytics
• Requirements and issues for network quality of service (QoS)
• HPC interconnects: topologies and protocols for supercomputers and cluster computers
• Storage area networks
• Network management: diagnostics, troubleshooting, fault management, performance monitoring, configuration management
• Multi-domain networking
Important Dates:
Paper Submission due: August 21, 2016
Notification of acceptance: October 1, 2016
Workshop-Ready version due: November 1, 2016
