              The Second International Workshop on
      Energy Consumption and Reliability of Storage Systems
                         (ERSS 2012)

                  Held in conjunction with the
      International Green Computing Conference - IGCC 2012
             June 5, 2012, San Jose, California, 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 unpublished, work in all areas of energy consumption and reliability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:      March 26, 2012, 11:59 PDT
    * Author Notification:          April 23, 2012
    * Camera-ready deadline:   May 7, 2012
