This is the first working group meeting (by invitation only) of the 3DPAS research theme. The aim of this meeting is to refine the specific aims and roadmap of the 3DPAS theme. The main areas we want to cover are: (i) Understanding the requirements and challenges of Distributed BIG-DATA applications and Distributed Dynamic applications, (ii) Cyberinfrastructure, Programming Systems and Abstractions for such Applications, and (iii) Propose and investigate "real" solutions for "real" problems. This meeting will follow a working-group format: Half a dozen predetermined & invited presentations, break-out sessions, with group-leads reporting back to the rest of the participants. This meeting will provide a venue for the working-group to formulate and highlight the critical, interesting and tractable challenges/questions/issues along each of the three areas outlined above.

Ultimately 3DPAS proposes to engender some, or all of the following: possible new proposals, state-of-the-art report to government/funding agencies, identify new grand challenges and facilitate prototype implementations of novel abstractions and architectures (such as on the US FutureGrid).

Target Audience

This meeting is intended for researchers and system developers for data-intensive application.
