Call For Papers

Second International Workshop on the Efficiency of Modern Data Centers (EMDC)

EMDC 2022 will be held in conjunction with the Web Conference (2022)
April 25-29, 2022, Lyon, France

Introduction to EMDC Workshop
Major research challenges in the operations of data centers include performance, power efficiency, availability, scalability, security among many others. As the number of Internet of Things (IoT) devices proliferates, data center capabilities will transcend basic management operations. That is, traditional management capabilities for CPU, memory and input/output operations need to be replaced with more advanced IoT-based management capabilities to include items such as temperature sensors, fan speed sensors, power sensors, moisture sensors among many others. Many modern data centers today continuously collect and aggregate a wide range of telemetry data in order to avoiding critical downtimes. For example, as heat load of modern data centers increases, the ability to monitor and manage ambient temperature becomes more and more vital for the availability, reliability, serviceability, safety, manageability and scalability of these mission-critical assets. However, such management capabilities also contribute to the consumption of network bandwidth, computational processing power and data storage. Therefore, we need more rigorous architectures and design methods for the efficient modern data centers, more sophisticated design and simulation tools, reliable equipment and software systems benchmarks, accurate performance evaluation methods, among many others.

This workshop will provide researchers and practitioners a venue to discuss the efficiency of modern data centers. The workshop’s ambition is to help in shaping a community of interest on the existing research opportunities and challenges associated with the engineering design and management of modern data centers. In this context, we believe having a dedicated workshop that brings researchers and practitioners together will help investigate innovative ideas or approaches to this new research challenge with main focus on the efficiency of modern data centers, foster collaborations and exchange points of view.
