The convergence of virtualization technologies and distributed computing is an exciting
subject and the aim of many research projects in both academia and industry.

Since the beginning of VTDC in 2006, a number of events dealing with virtualization and
cloud computing concerns have taken place. All of them have contributed to the improvement
of virtualization technologies leading to more complex and larger scale systems. However,
limiting the scope of Distributed Computing to Cloud platforms is not enough. For the
VTDC Steering Committee, Distributed Computing is larger than just Cloud platforms and the
VTDC workshop should continue to be a forum for the exchange of ideas and experiences on
the use of different virtualization technologies in distributed computing, including the
management of HPC, Data-Intensive or web hosting platforms as well as concerns dealing
with the virtualization of network and storage facilities.

Although the convergence of virtualization technologies and distributed computing has
been leading to exciting developments for almost ten years now, the use of virtual
environments is still far from reaching the maturity of more usual computing facilities
such as clusters or grids. Current solutions for operating virtual infrastructures are
rather "simple" management systems focusing on the contextualization of the virtual
machines, their deployments as well as their monitoring. The design and the implementation
of advanced mechanisms in charge of addressing particular concerns such as scalability,
reliability, and reactivity are either missing or not yet integrated in these systems

Building on previous successful as well as highly attended VTDC workshops, this 7th edition
will particularly consider innovative work addressing the aforementioned concerns with the
ultimate goal of delivering more advanced and integrated systems. Such systems might be seen
as mixes between IaaS and PaaS toolkits, enabling end-users to run large-scale applications
such as the HPC/HTC ones.

More precisely, topics of interest include:
- Virtualization for resource management and QoS assurance of distributed computing platforms
- Security aspects of using virtualization in a distributed environment
- Virtual networks
- Virtual data, storage as a service
- Fault tolerance in virtualized environments
- Virtualization in P2P systems
- Virtualization in HPC systems
- Virtualization-based adaptive/autonomic systems
- The creation and management of environments/appliances
- Performance modeling (applications and systems)
- Virtualization techniques for energy/thermal management
- Case studies of applications on virtualized platforms
- Deployment studies of virtualization technologies
- Tools relevant to virtualization
- Infrastructure as a service (IaaS)
- Virtualization in data/computing centers


VTDC'13 invites authors to submit original and unpublished work. Submitted
papers should be limited to 8 pages (including tables, images, and references)
and formatted according to the ACM SIGS Style
