                           CALL FOR PAPERS

                      1st International Workshop on
                Network-Aware Data Management(NDM 2011)

                        Held in conjunction with
   the IEEE/ACM International Conference for High Performance Computing,
                 Networking, Storage and Analysis (SC'11)
                                   November 14th, 2011
              Washington State Convention Center, Seattle, WA

The 1st workshop on Network-aware Data Management (NDM 2011  <http://sdm.lbl.gov/%7Ebalman/ndm2011>) will be held in
conjunction with the  International Conference for High Performance
Computing, Networking, Storage and Analysis (SC 2011).

Scope* Accessing and managing large amounts of data is a great challenge 
in a collaborative environment where resources/scientists are 
geographically distributed. There is a need for efficient use of the 
network infrastructure in order to address the increasing data and 
compute requirements of large-scale applications. Since the amount of 
data is continuously growing, traditional techniques of leaving the 
burden on the user of moving/storing data is not a viable option in many 
cases. In order to deliver true exascale performance to the application 
layer, network-aware data management services for resource provisioning, 
intelligent data-flow and coordination between the host systems is 
highly desirable. This workshop will seek contribution from academia, 
government, and industry to discuss emerging trends in use of networking 
for data management, novel abstraction techniques for data 
representation, simplification of end-to-end data flow by providing 
transparent data services, end-to-end resource coordination, and 
network-aware tools for the scientific community.
One "Best Paper" would be awarded for outstanding contributing to the 
field of large-scale data management across network. In addition to 
that, two "Best Paper Honorable Mention" would be awarded.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

    * Challenges in data-intensive distributed computing
    * End-to-end resource provisioning
    * Optimization and development of data transfer protocols
    * Scalable services for network-aware applications
    * Re-configurable data-access frameworks
    * Network-aware scheduling and resource brokering
    * Advanced services for managing data-flow
    * On-demand bandwidth allocation and network reservation
    * Application pipelines and workflow management
    * Network-aware toolkits for data distribution
    * Data replication and metadata management
    * Data clouds, data scheduling, and data placement
    * Heterogeneous and distributed resource management
    * Performance evaluation of network-aware data management
