                                 INFLOW '14

Interactions of NVM/Flash with Operating-Systems and Workloads
         OSDI'14 Workshop,   Oct 5, 2014  at Broomfield, CO, USA.

 Submission Date: July 21st, 2014      Acceptance:   Aug 25th, 2014


  The goal of INFLOW’14 is to bring together researchers and practitioners
  working in systems, across the hardware/software stack, who are
  in the cross-cutting issues of NVM/Flash technologies, Operating Systems,
  and emerging Workloads.

  In recent years, NVM based storage devices have been gaining popularity
  a medium of storage. Flash based SSDs in particular have had a widespread
  adoption by the industry driven by the need for greater storage
  NVM storage devices have dramatically different properties than
  hard disks. Yet, most of these devices are still exposed to operating
  as block-level devices similar to hard disks. There are still several
  fundamental research issues to be explored on how to efficiently
  with NVM and Flash based storage devices, and the implications of such
  in large scale workload deployments and on emerging workloads such as
  Analytics applications.

  The INFLOW Workshop is an attempt to bring top researchers across the
World to
  exchange ideas and discuss recent innovations related to NVM/Flash
  and their interactions with Operating systems and workloads, and doing
this in
  the context of current enterprises and consumer markets.
