Dear colleagues:

We cordially invite you to share your latest research results related to
distributed and reliable storage systems at the DRSS'19 workshop.

Call for papers

1st Workshop on Distributed and Reliable Storage Systems (DRSS’19) -

The 1st workshop on Distributed and Reliable Storage Systems (DRSS’19)
will take place on October 1, 2019, in Lyon, France and it is co-located
with SRDS 2019.

Storage systems are the cornerstone for a wide range of applications
focusing distinct fields, such as cloud and high-performance computing,
machine learning, deep learning, transactional and analytical
processing, data science, among others. Each field has very specific
needs in terms of performance, scalability, dependability and security,
which raises the need for a new generation of non-monolithic,
configurable and scenario-driven distributed and reliable storage solutions.

The main goal of the DRSS workshop is to provide a common forum where
storage researchers from across the world can debate new research ideas
and directions. By gathering researchers and practicioners working on
storage research topics and related areas such as big data, data
science, distributed systems, databases, networking, and security, the
workshop aims at discussing current state of the art, emerging
challenges and trends, as well as, novel solutions for storage systems.

The workshop is looking for submissions in the form of papers with a
maximum of 6 pages. The papers should explicitly address new research
challenges or/and propose novel solutions. The organization welcomes
contributions from both academia and industry. All submissions will be
reviewed by members of the workshop program committee, who will select
the best submissions for presentation at the workshop. Accepted papers
will also be included in SRDS'19 Workshop proceedings.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

Software-defined storage
Distributed storage
File systems
Geo-replicated storage
Application-specific storage
Archival and backup systems
IoT and edge storage
BigData storage
Storage for AI/Machine learning solutions
Storage auto-tuning
Storage security and privacy
Storage dependability and reliability
Storage benchmarking
Key-value and NoSQL stores

Important Dates
Paper submission: June 21, 2019
Authors notification: July 19, 2019
Camera-ready: August 2, 2019
Workshop: October 1, 2019

Submission guidelines
