Second Workshop On Performance and Scalability of Storage Systems (WOPSSS)

    Held jointly with ISC, Frankfurt, Germany June 22, 2017

** Submission deadline March 31 Extended to April 15th **

The Workshop On Performance and Scalability of Storage Systems (WOPSSS) aims
to present state-of-the-art research, innovative ideas, and experience that
focus on the design and implementation of HPC storage systems in both
academic and industrial worlds, with a special interest on their performance

The arrival of new storage technologies and scales unseen in previous
practice lead to significant loss of performance predictability. This will
leave storage system designers, application developers and the storage
community at large in the difficult situation of not being able to precisely
detect bottlenecks, evaluate the room for improvement, or estimate the
matching of applications with a given storage architecture.

WOPSSS intends to encourage discussion of these issues through submissions
of researchers or practitioners from both academic and industrial worlds.

** Topics of interest **
included but are not limited to:

Storage systems modeling and analysis tools 
Feed-back and empirical evaluation of storage systems 
Application I/O characterization 
Parallel I/O and storage systems: consistency, caching, replication,
reliability and fault recovery overhead 
Network challenges and storage systems: Scalability, QoS, Partitionability 
Low latency storage systems usability and analysis: memory-only, Flash,
NVRAM, Storage Class Memory 
File system design 
Operating system stack optimization 
Cloud and distributed storage

** Important Dates **

Submission deadline     March 31 Extended to April 15th
Author notification     April 30
Camera Ready            June 15
Workshop                June 22

** Submission Guidelines **
Papers need to be submitted via Easychair
Authors are invited to submit papers are required to be formatted in
Springer single column LNCS style
and within 10 pages, excluding the references.
The submissions are "single-blind", i.e. submissions are allowed to include
the author names.

The workshop is held in conjunction with the ISC-HPC during the ISC workshop
day. WOPSSS is co-organized with HPC-IODC workshop in order to create a full
day event focused on I/O and storage. See http://isc-hpc-io.org.  Our
cooperation includes the alignment of sessions and the potential to shift
papers between the two workshops. We encourage participants to take the
opportunity to attend both events.
