WOPSSS 19: Workshop on Performance and Scalability of Storage Systems
Frankfurt Marriott Hotel Hamburger Allee 2 Frankfurt, Germany, June 20, 2019

Conference website http://wopsss.org

Submission deadline April 20, 2019
Topics: storage file system performance analysis hpc

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
This year, for our 4th edition, we will extend the scope of the workshop
from HPC and Cloud to Artificial Intelligence (A). AI and Deep Learning
(DL) workloads are a major trend in the industry and these domain are
specifically limited by I/O bottleneck. This is why during this edition we
propose contributors to specifically target I/O analysis and optimization
for the AI related workload.
WOPSSS intends to encourage discussion of these issues through submissions
of researchers or practitioners from both academic and industrial worlds.
The workshop is held in conjunction with the ISC-HPC during the ISC workshop
day. Note that the attendance of ISC workshops requires a workshop pass. See
also our last year's workshop web page (http://wopsss.org)

Submission Guidelines
All papers must be original and not simultaneously submitted to another
journal or conference. The following paper categories are welcome:
Papers need to be submitted via Easychair
Authors are invited to submit papers are required to be formatted in
Springer single column LNCS style
(http://www.springer.com/computer/lncs?SGWID=0-164-6-793341-0) and within
10 pages, excluding the references.
The submissions are "single-blind", i.e. submissions are allowed to include
the author names.

List of Topics
    - AI and Deep Learning workloads interactions with storage
