The International Workshop of Software-Defined Data Communications and
Storage (SDDCS) 2016
in conjunction with IEEE ICDCS 2016
on June 27, 2016, in Nara, Japan


The future infrastructures of the data centers and cloud computing are
becoming more software defined. Although networking infrastructures consist
of 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, and the communication
performance decreases because we have been ignoring the properties of
storage devices. The software-defined methodology offers an opportunity to
bridge this gap and to deliver higher and improved performance. The SDDCS
workshop provides the forum for researchers of  multi-disciplinary fields:
networks, systems research which spans data communications, networking,
storage systems and devices, as well as the applications, to discuss and
exchange idea on how to take this opportunity to bridge the performance

SDDCS aims to bring together industry and academia to jointly explore
recent progresses related with the potential performance bottleneck and the
gap between communications and storage in the software-defined context. We
particularly encourage contributions which contain 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 deduplication 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 y 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
