4th Software-Defined Data Computing and Storage workshop (SDDCS) co-located
with ACM ASPLOS 2018 on March 25, 2018 in Williamsburg, VA, USA



The future infrastructures of data centers and cloud computing are becoming
increasingly software-defined. Although the infrastructures consist of
tightly connected computing, networking, and storage resources, these
resources are generally studied independently. For example, studies focused
on computing/network often overlook the properties of storage devices, and
vice versa. Overall infrastructure performance often decreases due to
miscommunication and misconfiguration of different resources.
Software-defined methodologies offer an opportunity to bridge the gap and
deliver high performance. But making an infrastructure "software defined"
takes cross community efforts. The SDDCS workshop provides the forum for
multi-disciplinary research spanning computing architecture, networking,
storage systems and devices, as well as applications. SDDCS aims to bring
together industry and academia to jointly explore recent progresses related
to the potential performance bottleneck and the gap between computing and
storage in the software-defined context. We particularly encourage
contributions containing highly novel ideas, new approaches, and/or
groundbreaking results.


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

Software-defined memory system for cloud computing

Software-defined non-volatile devices

Convergent design for computing 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

Security for SDDCS schemes

Programmable interfaces for convergent design

User studies and experiences of real-world applications (e.g., graph
processing, deep learning, database, etc)

Submission Instructions

Submitted papers must be no longer than 8 single-spaced 8.5" x 11" pages,
including figures, tables, and references; two-column format, using
10-point type on 12-point (single-spaced) leading; and a text block 6.5"
wide x 9" deep. Author names and affiliations should appear on the title
