Super-R: Supercomputing and R for Data-Intensive Analysis

SESSION: Super-R: Supercomputing and R for Data-Intensive Analysis

EVENT TYPE: Birds of a Feather

TIME: 5:30PM - 7:00PM

SESSION LEADER(S):Weijia Xu, Hui Zhang, George Ostrouchov



R has become popular for data analysis in many areas due to its high-level expressiveness and multitude of domain-specific packages. Challenges still remain in developing methods to effectively scale R to the power of supercomputers, and in deploying and enabling access to end users. This year’s BOF will focus on usability and provisioning R as an interactive high performance analysis environment within HPC resources. This BOF will consist of a set of short presentations and discussions with audience. The ultimate goal is to help build a community of users and experts interested in applying R to solve data intensive problems.
