Call For Papers

Call for Papers: The Network-aware Data Management Workshop (NDM 2011) to be held in conjunction with SC 2011 (

Mon Nov 14th, 2011 - Washington State Convention Center, Seattle, WA, USA

The Network-aware Data Management Workshop (NDM 2011) will be held in conjunction with the IEEE/ACM International Conference for High Performance Computing, Networking, Storage and Analysis (SC 2011).

The format will consist of 30 minute presentations of peer-reviewed papers. Accepted papers will be published in ACM or IEEE digital proceedings through SC'11.


Accessing and managing large amounts of data is a great challenge in a collaborative environment where resources/scientists are geographically distributed. There is a need for efficient use of the network infrastructure in order to address the increasing data and compute requirements of large-scale applications. Since the amount of data is continuously growing, traditional techniques of leaving the burden on the user of moving/storing data is not a viable option in many cases. Furthermore, advance knowledge is required by the users to utilize system tools and manage data manipulations in order to deliver true exascale performance to the application layer. Network-aware data management services for resource provisioning, intelligent data-flow and coordination between the host systems is highly desirable. This workshop will seek contribution from academia, government, and industry to discuss emerging trends in use of networking for data management, novel abstraction techniques for data representation, simplification of end-to-end data flow by providing transparent data services, end-to-end resource coordination, and network-aware tools for the scientific community.

One “Best Paper” would be awarded for outstanding contributing to the field of large-scale data management across network. In addition to that, two “Best Paper Honorable Mention” would be awarded.

Submission Guidelines:

Please submit full papers in PDF format via the Easy Chair submission site

No email submission would be accepted. The paper(s) should be no longer than ten (10) pages, excluding references.

Papers should be typeset in IEEE conference format.
Submissions that violate any of these restrictions will not be reviewed. The page limit will be enforced strictly.
