Peta- and exascale computing infrastructures make unprecedented demands on
storage capacity, performance, concurrency, reliability, availability, and
manageability. 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

Poster/Work In Progress Submissions:

Our poster session this year will be in the form of Work In Progress (WIP)
presentations. These invited talks are for those that wish to get feedback
or engage the community on any relevant topic. To participate, please
submit a 1-page (total) abstract to the Work In Progress submission site
in either ACM or IEEE format. Submissions will be judged on relevance and
accepted on a space available basis.

Accepted submissions will be given 5-minute brief talks and have the
abstract published on the workshop website.

WIP Submission Deadline: November 1, 2015
WIP Notification: November 6, 2015
WIP Final Submission: November 9, 2015

Please direct any questions to Jay Lofstead (gflofst at sandia.gov) and/or
Ali Butt (butta at vt.edu).
