** Topics: 

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 5th edition, we propose to give a specific twist to
address the system and operating system aspects of the storage stack. The
addressed workloads remain HPC, Big Data, Cloud, and Artificial
Intelligence. All these data intensive domains have to overcome the I/O
bottleneck by analyzing the performance, detecting parameters restricting
the performance and eventually providing I/O optimizations.

WOPSSS intends to encourage the discussion of these topics between
researchers and practitioners from both the academic and the industrial

The workshop is held in conjunction with EuroSys'20. 

** Submission Guidelines

    • All papers must be original and not simultaneously submitted to
another journal or conference. 
    • Papers need to be submitted via Easychair
    •  (http://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=wopsss2020)
    • 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.

List of Topics
WOPSSS topics of interest include but are not limited to:
    • AI and Deep Learning workloads interactions with storage 
    • Storage systems modeling and analysis tools  
    • Feed-back and empirical evaluation of storage systems  
    • Application I/O characterization  
    • AI workload and storage performance analysis  
    • Parallel I/O and storage systems: consistency, caching, replication,
reliability and fault recovery overhead  
    • Network challenges and storage systems: Scalability, QoS,
    • Low latency storage systems usability and analysis: memory-only,
Flash, NVRAM, Storage Class Memory  
    • File system design  
    • Cloud and distributed storage
