SNAPI 2011

7th IEEE International Workshop on Storage Network Architecture and Parallel I/Os

May 25th, 2011
Denver, Colarado

In conjunction with the
27th IEEE Conference on Mass Storage Systems and Technologies (MSST'08)


The 7th IEEE Storage Networking Architecture and Parallel I/O (SNAPI'11) Workshop aims to highlight the latest research in the architecture, design, implementation, and evaluation of local and networked storage and parallel I/O systems. The workshop is co-located with the 27th IEEE Conference on Mass Storage Systems and Technologies (MSST'11) that features a full week dedicated to "all things storage". The SNAPI'11 workshop, held in the middle of the MSST week, will feature a full day of technical papers that showcase the latest work from the academia, the labs, and the industry.


This year we would like to encourage a variety of submissions including novel idea papers, real system experience papers, as well as analysis and evaluation papers. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

- Caching, replication, and consistency
- Energy-efficient storage
- Evaluation of networked storage architectures
- Experiences with real systems
- File and block based network storage
- Integration and evaluation of emerging storage technology
- I/O quality of service
- New abstractions/protocols for data, storage, and I/O
- Parallel I/O
- Performance, scalability, and manageability of networked storage
- SSD-based storage architectures and tiered storage
- Storage device and workload characterization
- Storage networking
- Storage reliability and failure management
- Storage virtualization
- Thin provisioning, consolidation, compression, and deduplication
- Wide-area networked storage

Paper Submission Instructions and Deadlines

Submissions should not exceed 8 single-space pages including all text, figures, and references. Submissions must be typeset as double-column text, using no less than 10 pt font, and using a text block that does not exceed 6.5" width and 9" height.

The reviewing is double-blind. Authors must not be identified in the submission either directly or indirectly. Please be careful so as to not refer to your own work in the first person or leak authorship in any way within the text of the paper. Reviewing will be performed by the members of the SNAPI'11 Program Committee. Each paper will receive at least three reviews from members of the Program Committee.

The final version of the paper prepared after incorporating reviewer feedback should be submitted by April 1st, 2011. At least one author of each accepted paper will be expected to attend the workshop and present their work in a 25 minute talk.


Papers must be submitted using the following online submission system: To avoid last minute account creation delays or other mishaps, we encourage submitting a version well ahead of the deadline. You can continue to update your paper until the actual submission deadline.

Best Paper Award

Authors of the best paper, chosen by the Program Committee, will be presented an award at the workshop.
