The 8th Parallel Data Storage Workshop (PDSW13)
held in conjunction with IEEE/ACM Supercomputing (SC) 2013
Denver, Colorado, Monday, November 18, 2013

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 and
management 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. Addressing storage media ranging from tape, HDD,
and SSD, to new media like NVRAM, the 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
- support for high velocity or complex data
- metadata intensive workloads
- autonomics for HPC storage
- virtualization for storage systems
- archival storage advances
- resource management innovations
- 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 and not including
references, 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 (excluding references). 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
