Researchers in all disciplines are increasingly adopting digital tools, techniques and practices in communities and projects that span multiple disciplines, laboratories, organizations, and national boundaries. The e-Science 2015 conference is designed to bring together leading international and interdisciplinary research communities, developers, and users of e-Science applications and enabling IT technologies. The conference aims to serve as a forum to present recent research advances in e-Science and highlight associated activities worldwide, providing an outlook of challenges and opportunities we will face in the future.

e-Science 2015 will follow the previous e-Science conferences in encouraging submissions that explore advances in the application of technology in particular disciplines, covering both data-oriented and compute-oriented approaches, as well as extreme scale approaches and applications. Major topics include, but are not limited to

* New ways to engage and collaborate with external stakeholders, e.g.:
  - Scientists from other disciplines
  - Stimulating startups and industrial collaboration
  - Citizen scientists
  - General public
  - Addressing the challenge of anti-science

* Progress in thematic areas, e.g.:
  - Arts, humanities (including Digital Humanities) and e-Social science
  - Bioinformatics and e-Health
  - Climate, Environmental & Earth Sciences
  - Cyberinfrastructure to support e-Science, including novel hardware, software and services
  - Data science, data management and digital repositories
  - e-Science in the cloud
  - Education and e-Science practice
  - Physical Sciences and Engineering

* Sustainability and service management issues, e.g.:
  - Quality of Service in collaborative environments
  - Quality aspects of e-Science tools
  - Security and trust (including migration of services from organisation to another)
  - Long-term sustainability (20 - 50 year perspective)

01 Sep 2015 : 7th Workshop on Interfaces and Architectures for Scientific Data Storage (IASDS 2015) http://www.psc.edu/index.php/component/jevents/eventdetail/35/-/7th-workshop-on-interfaces-and-architectures-for-scientific-data-storage-iasds-2015?Itemid=0 http://www.psc.edu/index.php/component/jevents/eventdetail/35/-/7th-workshop-on-interfaces-and-architectures-for-scientific-data-storage-iasds-2015?Itemid=0 High-performance computing simulations and large scientific experiments generate tens of terabytes of data, and these data sizes grow each year. Existing systems for storing, managing, and analyzing data are being pushed to their limits by these applications, and new techniques are necessary to enable efficient data processing for future simulations and experiments.

The needs of scientific applications have triggered a continuous increase in scale of parallel systems, as demonstrated by the evolution of Top 500. However, the computation scale has not been matched by an increase in I/O scale. For example, in the design of earlier supercomputers the parallel I/O bandwidth was 1GBps for every TFLOP, whereas in the current solutions is 1GBps for every 10TFLOPS. This increased bottleneck makes even more pressing the need to employ the I/O subsystem in the most efficient solution possible. Scalable I/O has been already identified as critical for the PFLOP systems. The future exascale systems forecasted for 2018-2020 will presumably have O(1B) cores and will be hierarchical in both platform and algorithms. This hierarchy will imply a larger path in pipelining the data from cores to storage and vice-versa, exposing even more the I/O latency perceived by the current MPP architectures.

This workshop will provide a forum for engineers and scientists to present and discuss their most recent work related to the storage, management, and analysis of data for scientific workloads. Emphasis will be placed on forward-looking approaches to tackle the challenges of storage at extreme scale or to provide better abstractions for use in scientific workloads.
