# Workshop on Challenges and Opportunities of Efficient and Performant
Storage Systems (CHEOPS)

The workshop is aimed at researchers, developers of scientific
applications, engineers and everyone interested in the evolution of
storage systems. As the developments of computing power, storage and
network technologies continue to diverge, the bandwidth performance gap
between them widens. This trend, combined with the ever growing data
volumes and data-driven computing such as machine learning, results in
I/O and storage limitations, impacting the scalability and efficiency
of current and future computing systems. Some of these challenges are
quantitative, such as scale to match exascale system requirements, or
latency reduction of the software stack  to efficiently integrate new
generations of hardware like storage class memory (SCM). Some other
issues are more subtle and arise with the increased complexity of the
storage solutions, like new smarter and more potent data management
tools, monitoring systems or interoperability between I/O components or
data formats.

## Important Dates

- Paper Submission: February 7, 2022 (Anywhere on Earth)
- Notification to Authors: March 5, 2022
- Camera-Ready Deadline: March 13, 2022
- Workshop Date: April 5, 2022

## Submission Guidelines

Only original and novel work not currently under review in other venues
will be considered for publication. Submissions can either be full
papers (6 pages) or short papers (4 pages). The page count includes the
title, text, figures, appendices but excludes the references. They must
be submitted electronically as PDF files formatted according to the
submission rules of EuroSys. Accepted submissions will have to comply
with the EuroSys proceedings format. Extended versions of selected
papers will be considered for publication in the ACM SIGOPS Operating
Systems Review journal.

Papers have to be submitted to HotCRP at:
One author of each accepted paper is required to register for the
workshop and present the paper.

## Topics of Interest

Submissions may be more hands-on than research papers and we therefore
explicitly encourage submissions in the early stages of research.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

- Operating system optimizations
- Kernel and user space file/storage systems
- Cloud, parallel and distributed file/storage systems
- Approaches for low-latency and heterogeneous storage systems
- Metadata management
- Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence
- Hybrid solutions using file systems and databases
- Data organizations to support online workflows
- Domain-specific data management solutions
- Storage systems modeling and analysis tools
- Data reduction techniques
- UI/UX for storage systems
- Related experiences from users: what worked, what didn't?

## Agenda (to be finalized)

Keynote: Dr. Darrell D. E. Long is a Distinguished Professor of
Engineering at the University of California, Santa Cruz. He holds the
Kumar Malavalli Endowed Chair of Storage Systems Research and is
Director, emeritus, of the Storage Systems Research Center and Director
of the NSF I/UCRC Center for Storage Systems Research. He has authored
highly cited research papers on web caching, distributed file systems,
power-aware hard disk management in mobile computing, and low-bandwidth
multicast techniques for video on demand, among other topics.
