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 emerging storage
devices 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                     
* workload study from production systems

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 IEEE or ACM.

Paper Submission Deadline: EXTENDED TO 9pm PDT, September 6, 2014.
Paper Notification: September 30, 2014
Camera Ready Due: October 10, 2014

Work-in-progress (WIP) Submissions:

There will also be a WIP session at the workshop, where presenters give
5-minute brief talks on their on-going work, with fresh problems/solutions, but
may not be mature or complete yet for paper submission. A 1-page abstract is
required as instructed on the workshop web site.

WIP Submission Deadline: November 2, 2014
WIP Notification: November 7, 2014
