The International Workshop of Software-Defined Data Communications and
Storage (SDDCS) 2015,  in conjunction with IEEE INFOCOM 2015, Hong Kong




The future infrastructures of data centers and cloud computing are becoming
software defined. Although these infrastructures consist of both
communications and storage resources, they are generally studied
separately. Hence, applications and platforms have to precisely define the
virtual environment in which they wish to run. The communication
performance decreases due to overlook of the properties of storage devices
while storage performance may also get impacted by communication system.
The software-defined methodology offers an opportunity to bridge their gap
and deliver high performance. The SDDCS workshop provides a
multi-disciplinary forum for networks and systems research spanning data
communications, networking, storage systems and devices, as well as

SDDCS aims to bring together industry and academia to jointly explore
recent progresses related to the potential performance bottleneck and the
gap between communications and storage in the software-defined context. We
particularly encourage contributions containing highly original ideas, new
approaches, and/or groundbreaking results.

Topics of interest in SDDCS include but are not limited to:

Software-defined communication protocols
Software-defined storage devices
Convergent design for communications and storage
Non-volatile storage support for network transmission
Storage dedupication for remote cloud backups
Data collection and analytics for system optimization
Dynamic workload redistribution and scheduling
Non-volatile devices in network switches
Cross-layer coordination
Storage virtualization in network end systems
Security for SDDCS schemes
Programmable interfaces for convergent design
User studies and experiences of real-world applications

Submission Instructions

Submitted papers must be no longer than 8 single-spaced 8.5" x 11" pages,
including figures, tables, and references; two-column format, using
10-point type on 12-point (single-spaced) leading; and a text block 6.5"
wide x 9" deep. Author names and affiliations should appear on the title
page. The submitted papers should present original theoretical and/or
experimental research in any of the areas listed above that has not been
previously published, accepted for publication, or is not currently under
review by another conference or journal.
