The 2019 New York Scientific Data Summit (NYSDS) is the fifth in a symposia series established by Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL), and led by its Computational Science Initiative, which aims to accelerate data-driven discovery and innovation in science and industry. It brings together researchers, developers and end-users from academia, industry, utilities, and state and federal governments. The summit is a forum to connect diverse participants, from the greater New York region, as well as nationally and internationally, and to foster discussion and collaboration.
This year, the summit will be hosted and co-organized by Columbia University’s Computing Systems for Data-Driven Science center, which is part of its Data Science Institute (DSI). This center is a nexus at Columbia for research in large-scale computer systems design, data analytics, and applications to cutting-edge problems in science, engineering and medicine.
With keynote speakers from industry and international big-science projects, as well as a range of regular talks (both invited and submitted), the 2-1/2 day symposium is organized into six topic areas
Streaming Data Analysis and Large-Scale Simulation
Scalable Algorithms and Computer Systems for Scientific Applications
Large-Scale Image Analysis and Mapping
Focus Topic #1: Biomedical Informatics
Focus Topic #2: Earth and Climate Science
Focus Topic #3: Computational Astrophysics and Cosmology
David Keyes (KAUST) – The convergence of big data and large-scale simulation: leveraging the simulation-data-edge continuum for science
Mark Moraes (DE Shaw Research, NY, NY) – Drinking from a firehose: solving data analysis challenges posed by the Anton supercomputer
Gavin Schmidt (NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies, NY, NY) – Challenges in climate science in an era of big data
Rick Stevens (Argonne National Laboratory/University of Chicago) – AI for science
Karen Willcox (UT Austin) – Projection-based model reduction: formulations for physics-based machine learning
