When dealing with large amounts of data, the I/O subsystem of modern Supercomputers is one of the most sensible components with regards to performance. Today, application scientists from different backgrounds have to struggle with the details of parallel file systems to obtain optimal performance. Only to a certain extend the management of the data is supported by libraries like HDF5. An especially challenging example is the storage of results computed on unstructured grids, maybe including grid adaptivity, occurring for example in computations in structural mechanics, cosmology or climate simulations.

The workshop will bring together experts from application development, middleware and storage design to discuss the issues of storing and accessing large datasets, especially data on unstructured grids. The main goal of the workshop is the identification of future proof strategies for the efficient access large data sets with respect to an optimal utilization of modern storage subsystems and memory hierarchies.
