NSF-Sponsored Workshop on "Next Generation Cloud Research Infrastructure"

We would like to inform you of a key upcoming NSF sponsored research community workshop on “Next Generation Cloud Research Infrastructure” to be held on November 11-12, 2019, in Princeton, NJ. The workshop will immediately precede the ACM HotNets 2019 workshop at the same location.

As cloud computing research has evolved, NSF has supported multiple research infrastructure projects for the CISE community. The goal of this workshop is to identify the requirements for future cloud computing research infrastructures that will help ensure continued community contributions to future cloud platforms and technologies. A community discussion of a forward-looking cloud systems research agenda will drive the discussion. We encourage experimental research testbed users, cloud infrastructure developers, and cloud computing educators to participate. We intend to bring together a diverse set of research community members and industry thought leaders with broad expertise in areas related to this discussion.

The workshop will be organized primarily around panels and breakout sessions to encourage brainstorming. Travel grants will be available to selected participants. Students are encouraged to participate. Workshop findings will be reported to the community and to NSF.

Due to strong community interest in advancing cloud research infrastructure, we anticipate that workshop attendance will be limited. To ensure a balance of research perspectives at the event, please follow the instructions for prospective participants by submitting a 1 page abstract summarizing your workshop contribution by the identified deadline.

Abstract submission deadline Aug 20: https://sites.google.com/view/workshop-on-cloud-cri/instructions-for-participants?authuser=0

Each prospective workshop participant should submit a one-page summary of a position, experiment, technology, application, architecture, lesson learned, or research vision to share with attendees.

I would love to see a strong Pangeo presence at this workshop. There are multiple topics we could share. Let’s use this thread to see who is interested and coordinate the abstract submissions.

Ryan etc… happy to help get a Pangeo piece together. I already have a
general “bridging computer science - computational science chauvinism”
abstract in, but can help with another.

Maybe something around a general how to expose dark data more broadly theme
but technical for CISE “unified scalable APIs and services for potentially
exabytes of spatio-temporal, heterogeneous predominantly read only data”
would be of interest in CISE? In many ways this warrants a workshop of its
own, but having cloud testbed folks aware and engaged would be great.

Some thoughts about different abstracts that we could submit:

  • Our experience operating cloud-based data analysis environments in production around large datasets. We have learned lots of lessons here in terms of costs, benefits, challenges, etc. Could build on Joe’s blog posts
  • The importance of “cloud-native” data formats that optimally leverage the properties of object storage. This is in line with @christophernhill’s suggestions. I would be keen to lead this one.

The deadline is coming up, so we should get focused on this. UW folks (e.g. @amanda-tan, @aaarendt, @robfatland ) - are you planning to submit something? How can we best coordinate?

From @robfatland on Thu Aug 15 2019 16:16:09 GMT+0000 (UTC)

Hi; Yes I’m going and will present (albeit briefly) on CloudBank and pangeo
as I’m connected with both projects. I’m aware the deadline is coming up
but I’m out on vacation til Monday so I’ll be more coherent then. It’d be
great to coordinate on this. thanks Ryan. -r

@rabernat I like the idea of building on Joe’s posts. We should also tie in something from the Ed. WG discussions about sustainability and outreach. I think a frank discussion on how many of these initiatives end up failing due to lack of adoption/resources and how to avoid them in the context of building the next big CI would be great. I won’t be attending; I’m doing too much travel in the Fall/Winter but can work around contributing to an abstract.

Fortunately the deadline is extended to Extended to August 27, 2019

From @robfatland on Thu Aug 22 2019 02:56:07 GMT+0000 (UTC)

Super, and fwiw my abstract is primarily on cloudbank so a pangeo entry
would be most opportune

As a quick update on this.

@rabernat submitted an abstract on Cloud-Native Data Formats: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1V8rSaL86CA_Jp4N7slCVzUYa0k9QdsKRAt3z2O8gcKQ/edit

I am currently finishing up an abstract on the Pangeo Cloud Platform / Pangeo Principles: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1dvkKHUsJTEpwxDWoNwlX-vBoDjVsZQO-jYh7ya9TXEg/edit?usp=sharing

From @robfatland on Tue Aug 27 2019 17:58:34 GMT+0000 (UTC)

these are both excellent
