                The First International Workshop on
        Energy Consumption and Reliability of Storage Systems
                           (ERSS 2011)

                    Held in conjunction with the
        International Green Computing Conference - IGCC 2011
               July 25, 2011, Orlando, Florida, USA


Large-scale computing infrastructures make unprecedented demands on
information storage capacity, performance, energy consumption,
reliability, and manageability. The increasing use of computers for
saving valuable data imposes stringent energy consumption and
reliability constraints on storage systems. As the disk capacity
improves, advanced techniques are being employed to proactively conserve
energy while improving the reliability of the storage systems.

To this end, the Workshop on Energy Consumption and Reliability of
Storage Systems is being organized to bring together researchers and
practitioners to explore the challenges, opportunities, and approaches
of energy-aware and reliable storage systems. This workshop focuses on
the data storage problems and emerging solutions found in large-scale
scientific and enterprise computing environments, with special attention
to the issues concerning energy consumption and reliability of the
storage systems.

We solicit papers on all aspects of energy efficient and reliable
storage systems. The topics include (but are not limited to):

* Cloud storage system.
* Cluster and data center storage system.
* Energy efficient storage system.
* Reliable storage system.
* Algorithms for energy and reliability-aware storage.
* Models for collective optimization of energy and reliability.
* Monitoring tools for energy and/or reliability-aware storage.
* Experiences with real storage systems concerning energy and reliability.
* Reliability and energy efficiency in mobile storage systems.
* Factors affecting energy and/or reliability.

The workshop invites authors to submit papers describing original,
unpublished, work in all areas of energy consumption and reliability
storage systems that is not concurrently under review elsewhere. All
submissions will be reviewed by the Program Committee.

The papers should not exceed five single-spaced pages (IEEE Computer
Society Proceedings Manuscripts style: two columns, 11-point fonts, IEEE
8.5 x 11 inch) including everything, e.g., abstract, research
description, figures, tables, and references.

Each paper will be refereed by independent reviewers. Submission is a
definite commitment for at least one of the authors to register to
attend IGCC (workshops are included) and present the paper if it is

The workshop proceedings will be published by the IEEE Computer Society
along with the IGCC conference proceedings.

      * Submission deadline:        April 6, 2011, 11:59 PDT
      * Author Notification:        May 6, 2011
      * Camera-ready deadline:      June 6, 2011
