DiCoS Application Workinar – a new DiCoS resource

The DiCoS Application Workinar is a forum for researchers at UD and partners using computational and data-intensive methods to expose their applications to those with expertise in developing, optimizing, and running such applications and to obtain feedback for improvements.

The format is a presentation of 20 to max 30 minutes, followed by a 30-minute discussion.

If you wish to take advantage of this resource, please send email to Rudi Eigenmann, eigenman@udel.edu, with CC to Samantha Smith, sesmith@udel.edu. Please provide a title, brief abstract, and possible time windows over the next three weeks. DiCoS will follow up with scheduling the Workinar with known UD experts from Computer Science, Computer Engineering, UD IT, and other parties that might be able to offer help. Please indicate special topics that you need help with, beyond expertise in programming, optimizing, and running the applications on UD’s or national HPC+Data resources (e.g., specific algorithms, or machine-learning methods).

For the presentation, be sure to focus on the areas for which you need help. Provide an overview of the domain problem, but then focus on the computational and/or data aspects. Be sure to describe the software and system aspects, such as the programming languages used, lines of code involved, algorithms used, parallel programming models employed, architectures run on, and current scalability, if known.


The Workinar organizers will invite a number of faculty, student, and staff members with expertise in developing, optimizing, and running computational and data-intensive applications, and who are willing and interested in providing feedback. Please also provide a list of domain researchers who are interested in seeing the project succeed and will be available for follow-up questions.
