                           Call for Papers

  5th Workshop on Interfaces and Architectures for Scientific Data Storage


                  Friday September 27 2013, 
  held in conjunction with IEEE Cluster 2013 in Indianapolis, IN, USA

           Paper Submission Deadline: September 1st, 2013

High-performance computing simulations and large scientific experiments 
generate tens of terabytes of data, and these data sizes grow each year. 
Existing systems for storing, managing, and analyzing data are being 
pushed to their limits by these applications, and new techniques are 
necessary to enable efficient data processing for future simulations and 

This workshop will provide a forum for engineers and scientists to 
present and discuss their most recent work related to the storage, 
management, and analysis of data for scientific workloads. Emphasis will 
be placed on forward-looking approaches to tackle the challenges of 
storage at extreme scale or to provide better abstractions for use in 
scientific workloads.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

 * parallel file systems
 * scientific databases
 * active storage
 * scientific I/O middleware
 * extreme scale storage
