Peta- and exascale computing infrastructures make unprecedented demands on
capacity, performance, concurrency, reliability, availability, and
manageability of storage systems. 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: 9pm PDT, September 16, 2015
Paper Notification: September 30, 2015
Camera Ready Due: October 9, 2015

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 comprising fresh
problems/solutions that 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 1, 2015
WIP Notification: November 6, 2015
WIP Final Submission: November 9, 2015
