The 5th International Workshop on Network-aware Data Management
(NDM'15) in cooperation with ACM SIGHPC,
in conjunction with SC15: IEEE/ACM International Conference for High
Performance Computing, Networking, Storage and Analysis, in Austin,
Texas, USA.

Website: http://ndm-meeting.org
Workshop date: November 16, 2015
Abstracts: August 15, 2015, Papers: August 22, 2015
* Scope:

Today’s data centric environment both in industry and scientific
domains depends on the underlying network infrastructure and its
performance, to deliver highly distributed extreme-scale application
workloads. As current technology enables faster storage devices and
larger interconnect bandwidth, there is a substantial need for novel
system design and middleware architecture to address increasing
latency and scalability requirements. Furthermore, limitations in
end-system architecture and system software design play an important
role in many-core platforms. Traditional network and data management
techniques are unlikely to scale to meet the needs of future
data-intensive systems. We require new collaborations between data
management and networking communities to develop intelligent
networking middleware and efficient data management infrastructure.
This workshop seeks contributions from academia, government, and
industry to discuss future design principles of network-aware data
management. We focus on emerging trends in resource coordination,
data-aware scheduling, storage technologies, end-to-end performance,
network-aware workflow management, high-performance networking, and
network virtualization.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to the following list:

• Practical experiences and prototypes for network-aware data management
• Workload characterization for latency/throughput sensitive applications
• Operating system and virtualization support for networking
• Network-aware data management tools and systems
• Requirements and issues for network quality of service (QoS)
•       Optimization of data transfer protocols, development of
non-TCP protocols
•       Applications of software defined networking for large data flows
• Data center networking and network management for Cloud environment
• Performance evaluation and experimental results from network applications
• Design, implementation, and analysis of high-performance networking
• Network virtualization for large-scale data management
• Experiences with emerging storage technologies for network applications
• Network fault tolerant data distribution for large scientific datasets
• Heterogeneous and distributed resource coordination and workflow management

* Submission Guidelines:

Please submit full papers (6-8 pages) in PDF format via the submission
 site (https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=ndm2015). No email
submission would be accepted. Accepted papers would be given a total
of 20-30 minutes for presentation and question time. Submissions
should be no longer than eight (8) pages, including references and
figures.   Reviewing of the  full papers will be done by the program
committee, assisted by  external referees.  At least one of the
authors of an accepted paper should register and present the paper.
Accepted papers will be  included  in the proceedings and will be
available through  ACM DL and IEEE Xplore.
