[hpc-announce] CFP: SDDCS 2017 Workshop with ASPLOS 2017

The 3rd International Workshop of Software-Defined Data Communications and
Storage (SDDCS) 2017, in conjunction with ACM ASPLOS 2017, on April 8,
2017, in Xi'an, China.



Making an infrastructure “software defined” takes cross community efforts.
Just like the theme of ASPLOS that brings together the architecture,
systems and programming language community, SDDCS provides a
multi-disciplinary forum for system research, spanning from storage
devices, software systems, network virtualization and applications,
focusing on the important problem of making future systems software-defined.

The future infrastructures of the data centers and cloud computing are
becoming increasingly software-defined. Although the 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. The communication
performance decreases due to overlooking the properties of storage devices,
and vice versa. Software-defined methodologies offer an opportunity to
bridge their gap and deliver high performance.

The SDDCS workshop provides the forum for multi-disciplinary research
spanning data communications, networking, storage systems and devices, as
well as the applications. SDDCS aims to bring together industry and
academia to jointly explore recent progresses related to the potential
performance bottleneck and the gap between communications and storage in
the software-defined context. We particularly encourage contributions
containing highly novel ideas, new approaches, and/or groundbreaking


Topics of interests in SDDCS include but are not limited to:

Software-defined memory system for cloud computing

Software-defined non-volatile 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 in data centers

Storage virtualization in data centers

Security for SDDCS schemes

Programmable interfaces for convergent design

User studies and experiences of real-world applications
