** We apologize if you receive multiple copies of this CFP **

The 2nd International Workshop on Network-aware Data Management (NDM 
2012) to be held in conjunction with SC 2012 (sc12.supercomputing.org 
Sun Nov 11th, 2012 -- Salt Lake City, Utah, USA.

The Network-aware Data Management Workshop (NDM 2012) will be held in 
conjunction with the IEEE/ACM International Conference for High 
Performance Computing, Networking, Storage and Analysis (SC 2012), in 
Salt Lake City, Utah.

* Scope: Scientific applications and experimental facilities generate 
large amounts of data. In addition to increasing data volumes and 
computational requirements, today's major science requires cooperative 
work in globally distributed multidisciplinary teams. In the age of 
extraordinary advances in communication technologies, there is a need 
for efficient use of the network infrastructure to address increasing 
data and compute requirements of large-scale applications. Since the 
amount of data and the size of scientific projects are continuously 
growing, traditional data management techniques are unlikely to support 
future collaboration systems at the extreme scale. Network-aware data 
management services for dynamic resource provisioning, end-to-end 
processing of data, intelligent data-flow and resource coordination are 
highly desirable. This workshop will seek contribution from academia, 
government, and industry to discuss emerging trends in use of networking 
for data management, novel techniques for data representation, 
simplification of end-to-end data flow, resource coordination, and 
network-aware tools for the scientific applications.

* Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

- High-bandwidth networks/protocols and middleware
- Network support for data-intensive computing
- Scalable services for network-aware applications
- Network-aware data scheduling and resource brokering
- Dynamic resource provisioning mechanisms
- Performance evaluation of network-aware data management
- Cloud/Grid management systems
- Tools and systems to support future collaborative science
- Practical experiences and prototypes for large-scale data streaming
- Performance modeling/ Quality of Service (QoS) issues
- Application pipelines and workflow management
- Network-aware toolkits for data distribution
- Data replication and metadata management
- Heterogeneous resource management
- Recovery from network failures

* Important Dates:
  Paper Registration due: Aug 27th, 2012
  Paper Submission due: Sept 3rd, 2012
  Workshop Date: Nov 11th, 2012 (Sunday)
  Workshop Web Site: http://sdm.lbl.gov/ndm/2012 

* Submission Guidelines [call for papers]:

Please submit your paper(s) in PDF format via the EasyChair submission 
site: https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=ndm2012
Your paper must be formatted according to the double-column format used 
for IEEE Conference Proceedings. Please use the templates provided at 
to ensure that formatting will meet IEEE specifications.

Reviewing of the papers will be done by the program committee, assisted 
by external referees. The decision of the program committee is final. 
Papers should be self-contained. All submissions will be peer-reviewed 
based on correctness, technical strength, originality,  quality of 
presentation, relevance to the workshop's scope and topics of interest.

Submitted papers must be original work, have not appeared in and is not 
under consideration for another workshop, conference or a journal. 
Accepted papers will be published in IEEE digital proceedings through SC 

Papers should be no longer than ten (10) pages, including figures, 
tables,  and references.  Submissions that violate any of these 
restrictions will not be reviewed. The page limit will be enforced
