The 7th Parallel Data Storage Workshop (PDSW12)
held in conjunction with IEEE/ACM Supercomputing (SC) 2012
Salt Lake City, Utah, Monday, November 12, 2012

URL: http://www.pdsw.org

Peta- and exascale computing infrastructures make unprecedented demands on storage capacity, performance, concurrency, reliability, availability, and manageability. This one-day workshop focuses on the data storage problems and emerging solutions found in peta- and exascale scientific computing environments, with special attention to issues in which community collaboration can be crucial for problem identification, workload capture, solution interoperability, standards with community buy-in, and shared tools. This workshop seeks contributions on relevant topics, including but not limited to:

- performance and benchmarking
- failure tolerance problems and solutions
- APIs for high performance features
- parallel file systems
- high bandwidth storage architectures
- wide area file systems
- metadata intensive workloads
- autonomics for HPC storage
- virtualization for storage systems
- archival storage advances
- resource management innovations
- storage systems for big data and analytics
- incorporation of emerging storage technologies

Paper Submissions:

The Parallel Data Storage Workshop holds a peer reviewed competitive process for selecting short papers. Submit a not previously published short paper of up to 5 pages, not less than 10 point font, in a PDF file as instructed on the workshop web site. Submitted papers will be reviewed under the supervision of the workshop program committee. Submissions should indicate authors and affiliations. Final papers must not be longer than 5 pages. Selected papers and associated talk slides will be made available on the workshop web site; the papers will also be published in the digital library of the IEEE or ACM.
