Dear colleagues,

As one of the workshop organizers, I cordially invite you to submit a
manuscript to the 8th Annual International Workshop on Innovating the
Network for Data-Intensive Science (INDIS 2021) to be held in
conjunction with the SC21. The manuscript submission deadline has been
extended to September 5, 2021 11:59 PM AoE.

This year, two paper tracks are available: (1) full papers (up to 10
pages), and (2) late-breaking research and preliminary techniques papers
(i.e., short papers, 5 pages excluding references). All accepted papers
(subject to post-review revisions) will be published in the SC21
conference workshop proceedings through IEEE TCHPC.

Please note that we will work to accommodate remote presenters if you
are prevented from travel at the time of the conference.

For submission details, please see below or refer to our website:

   Scope, Aims, and Topics
The Innovating the Network for Data-Intensive Science (INDIS) workshop
brings together network engineers and researchers to share challenges
and potential solutions in the information systems and networking
communities. With its inaugural appearance at SC14 in New Orleans, INDIS
has become an academic forum for experts, researchers, and engineers in
research and education (R&E) networking.

We invite researchers and engineers to submit high-quality academic
papers to the 8th Annual International Workshop on Innovating the
Network for Data-Intensive Science (INDIS 2021). The workshop will be
held in conjunction with the SC21: IEEE/ACM International Conference for
High Performance Computing, Networking, Storage and Analysis
(SuperComputing), which will be held in St. Louis, MO, on Monday,
November 15, 2021.

We invite papers that propose new and novel techniques that increase the
capacity and functionality of scientific computing and wide-area
networks. This workshop encourages submissions that address one or more
of the following networking research challenges; and developments that
are essential in the information systems infrastructure for the
scientific discovery process.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Data-intensive distributed application architectures
- Software-defined networking (SDN) and Network Function Virtualization
(NFV) in service of data science applications
- High-performance data transfer applications and techniques
- Science DMZs and other campus network architecture constructs
- Requirements and issues for network quality of service (QoS) or
experience (QoE)
- Multi-domain networking, including hybrid clouds, multi-domain
authorization, data sharing, and data privacy
- Network monitoring and traffic analytics for large and small
transfers, autonomous network control
- Network management: diagnostics, troubleshooting, fault management,
performance monitoring, configuration management, and scheduling
- Experiments involving BigData processing, ML/AI for Network monitoring
- High-performance network protocols and network architectures
- Securing high-speed networks
- Cross-layer network architectures and concepts

We also invite participants from both SCinet’s Network Research
Exhibition (NRE) and Experimental Network (XNet) communities to submit
high-quality experimental papers on their latest designs and solutions.
SCinet, as the high-speed network engine of the SC conference,
represents state of the art, connects many demonstrators of big science
data processing infrastructures at the highest line speeds, deploys the
newest technologies available, and demonstrates novel functionality. The
show floor network connects to many laboratories and universities
worldwide using high-bandwidth connections.

   Submission Guidelines
Authors are invited to submit full papers with unpublished, original work.

Full papers are limited to 10 pages using 10pt fonts in the IEEE
conference format. The 10-page limit includes figures, tables, and your
appendices, but does not include references, for which there is no page
limit. Reproducibility initiative dependencies (Artifact Description or
Computational Results Analysis) are also not included in the 10-page limit.

A separate Late-Breaking Research and Preliminary Techniques stream is
also available for authors to submit 5-page papers (using 10pt fonts in
the IEEE conference format) describing initial research or early
first-of-a-kind results (this page limit does not include references but
includes all technical content and figures).

All accepted papers (subject to post-review revisions) will be published
in the SC21 conference workshop proceedings through IEEE TCHPC.

Please note that we will work to accommodate remote presenters if you
are prevented from travel to the USA at the time of the conference.

Workshop papers must be submitted electronically at
https://submissions.supercomputing.org/ and must follow the IEEE
conference template:

INDIS 2021 follows the SC21 reproducibility initiative. The SC21 details
