IT4RIs 2018

Time critical applications and infrastructure optimization the 3rd edition in the series of workshop on Interoperable infrastructures for interdisciplinary big data sciences (IT4RIs 18). In conjunction with Amsterdam HPC master course (HPC 2018) http://staff.fnwi.uva.nl/z.zhao/workshop/it4ris/2018

Aims and scope
————–
Real-time applications (disaster warning and response, traffic flow control, weather monitoring and forecasting, etc.) are among the most challenging applications to develop, deploy and control on distributed infrastructure but can be of great current and future value to research, industry and public safety/security. Applications that fuse real-time requirements with environmental science require the establishment of dedicated agile e-infrastructure that can provide fundamental storage and processing capacity that is able to respond effectively to time-critical events.

During the event, partners worked together on the use cases and presented live demos at the IT4RIs workshop.
