We need your help to make this workshop a success!
If you are attending in the workshop on site, we encourage you to help us form the content of the workshop and to get involved! No one person has all the answers. We can learn from each other.
Because the workshop is focused on discussion to encourage future collaborations/partnerships, we have kept formal talks and invited speakers to a minimum. Instead, we encourage attendees to consider participating in one or more of four areas listed below.
Lightning talks are an excellent opportunity to share your expertise or to let attendees know in what areas you or your institution would be interested in collaborating. We are covering many topics as part of the three-day workshop - data mining, knowledge extraction, visualization, multi-core and data parallel approaches, pipelines, data organization, and data management. We hope that you'll consider presenting a lightning talk in one or more of these areas.
There will be ongoing sign-ups for lightning talks throughout the workshop. Sign-up sheets will be available outside the workshop auditorium.
Each lightning talk will be given 10 minutes total with a hard cut-off. Allocate 8 minutes for your talk and plan to leave 2 minutes for questions. Please make sure that any slides you need for your talk are provided for upload during the break time preceding your lightning talk slot.
If you have a demo that you'd like to share, we will have dynamic and ongoing sign-ups for demos throughout the workshop. Please contact Amy Shelton (email@example.com) if you would like to present a demo that requires more than just a computer, projector, and internet connection.
We will provide space for posters. As with lightning talks, posters are an excellent opportunity to share your expertise or to let attendees know in what areas you or your institution would be interested in collaborating. Please consider bringing a poster on any of the topics covered in this workshop. There is no need to submit poster abstracts ahead of time. Just bring the poster with you. If you provide an electronic version (preferrably in letter size) of your poster, we will upload it to our web page and make it available for all attendees. Electronic versions can be e-mailed to Amy Shelton (firstname.lastname@example.org).

Finally, a large portion of our agenda is dedicated to group discussion. Each group discussion is lead by a panel formed from our workshop's on-site attendees. We will have panels covering the following topics:
If you are interested in participating as part of one or more panels, please contact Amy Shelton (email@example.com).
- current and future challenges for data-intensive computing in astronomy
- data-mining and knowledge extraction
- visualization analytics
- multi-core and data parallel approaches
