Call For Papers


Computational scientists are no longer satisfied with petascale infrastructures. Their demands for finer and finer spatial and temporal resolutions are driving parallel storage systems to larger and larger scales of parallelism and concurrency. This scale creates new problems and exacerbates old ones in areas such as storage capacity, performance, concurrency, data retrieval, reliability, availability, and manageability. Additionally, new technologies such as cloud storage are encouraging scientists to preserve more old data and to expand their analyses to include data from a wider range of previous computations. Paying special attention to issues in which community collaboration can be crucial such as problem identification, workload capture, solution interoperability, standards with community buy-in, and shared tools, this one-day workshop seeks contributions in the form of papers and posters on relevant topics, including but not limited to:

- performance and benchmarking results and tools,
- failure tolerance,
- APIs and protocols for high performance features,
- parallel file systems,
- high bandwidth storage architectures,
- wide area file systems,
- metadata intensive workloads,
- information extraction,
- autonomics for HPC storage,
- checkpoint/restart,
- virtualization for storage systems,
- archival storage advances, and
- resource management innovations.


Agenda information coming soon.

CALL FOR PAPERS POSTER - download and hang one up at your office / department!

The parallel data storage workshop holds a peer reviewed competitive process for selecting extended abstracts and short papers. Submit a not previously published extended abstract of up to 5 pages, not less than 10 point font, in a PDF file as instructed on the workshop web site. Submitted papers will be reviewed under the supervision of the workshop program committee. Submissions should indicate authors and affiliations. Final papers must not be longer than 5 pages. Selected papers and associated talk slides will be made available on the workshop web site; the papers will also be published in the digital library of the IEEE or ACM.



Poster Submission Website:
Due: Monday, November 7, 2011
Notification: Wednesday, November 9, 2011

The PDSW program committee highly encourages authors of accepted papers to present posters of their work - accepted papers ALWAYS be accepted for a poster.

Additional submissions for technical poster presentation will be considered if they are marked as such and include title and author list and a short abstract. Further specifications for poster production will be available on the workshop web site.


- Instructions coming soon.

Please be aware that all attendees to the workshop, both speakers and participants, will have to pay an SC11 registration fee. However, there will be available a Workshop-only registration fee at a much reduced rate relative to the weeklong conference registration fee ($150). If you do register for the technical program, workshop admittance is included in that fee.

STUDENT VOLUNTEERS TO SC11: Student volunteers that have free SC11 registration also have free PDSW registration.
