Call for White Papers STREAM2016

Data streaming from on-line instruments, large scale simulations, and distributed sensors such as those found in transportation systems and urban environments point to the growing interest and important role of streaming data and related real-time steering and control. As part of a two part workshop series, we are organizing STREAM2016 to identify application and technology communities in this area and to clarify challenges that they face.

The report of the first workshop in the series (STREAM2015) held in October 2015 can be found at: STREAM2016 will follow from STREAM2015 and will focus on the features, requirements and challenges of DOE applications and the hardware and software systems needed to support them.

STREAM2016 will be held March 22-23, 2016 in Washington DC. The purpose of this meeting will be to follow up on issues identified in STREAM2015 and will also cover data from scientific domains of interest to the Department of Energy. Additional details on logistics will be provided shortly.

Members of the community are invited to submit a 1-2 page White Paper/Statement of Interest in areas of relevance to STREAM2016's scope and objectives including issues raised in STREAM2015. Participants will be selected based upon relevance of submissions as well as strategic balance of expertise. White papers are due by February 21 and should be sent to Sophia Pasadis ( If you have any questions, please contact workshop organizers: Geoffrey Fox (, Shantenu Jha ( or Lavanya Ramakrishnan (
