* 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.
