             Call for Papers -Extended Submission Due Date: February 4,

The 3nd IEEE International Workshop on Data Center Performance (DCPerf'13)
                           Philadelphia, USA, July 8-11, 2013

                              in conjunction with

   The 33nd International IEEE Conference on Distributed Computing Systems

Data centers have become an integral part of the backbone infrastructure
information technology. In particular, they provide a cost efficient
for provisioning a wide range of computing resources in diverse
such as business, scientific, and mobile. Due to the rapid growth of
and user-generated programs, applications and content, the complexity of d
eploying and operating data centers continues to increase. Considering the
volume of mixed workloads, the diversity of services offered, and the
mobility of users across geographically distributed areas, the performance
optimization of data centers has become ever more necessary and
especially in view of criteria such as scalability, reliability,
power efficiency, area density, and operating costs. As a result, adaptive
autonomic optimization strategies are essential in managing the
complexity of data center performance.
The goal of this workshop is to promote a community-wide discussion to find
identify suitable strategies to enable effective and scalable data center
optimizations. We are looking for papers that present new techniques,
introduce new
methodologies, propose new research directions, or discuss strategies for
open performance problems of data centers.
