                           Call for Papers

  6th Workshop on Interfaces and Architectures for Scientific Data Storage


                        September 9-12, 2014,
  held in conjunction with ICPP 2014 in Minneapolis, MN, USA

           Paper Submission Deadline: March 31, 2014

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
