NIST will hold a Big Data Workshop [1] 13-14 June 2012 in Gaithersburg
to explore key national priority topics in support of the White House
Big Data Initiative.  The workshop is being held in collaboration with
the NSF sponsored Center for Hybrid Multicore Productivity Research, a
collaboration between UMBC, Georgia Tech and UCSD.    (03)

This first workshop will discuss examples from science, health,
disaster management, security, and finance as well as topics in
emerging technology areas, including analytics and architectures.  Two
issues of special interest are identifying the core technologies
needed to collect, store, preserve, manage, analyze, and share big
data that could be standardized and developing measurements to ensure
the accuracy and robustness of big data methods.    (04)

The format will be a mixture of sessions, panels, and posters. Session
speakers and panel members are by invitation only but all interested
parties are encouraged to submit extended abstracts and/or posters.
The workshop is being held at NIST's Gaithersburg facility and is free
and open to all, although online pre-registration by 6/6 is required.  A
preliminary agenda [4] is available which is subject to change as the
workshop date approaches.    (05)
