Call for Papers - Extended Submission Due Date: February 4 2013

The 3nd IEEE International Workshop on Data Center Performance (DCPerf'13)
Philadelphia, USA, July 8-11, 2013

in conjunction with

The 33nd International IEEE Conference on Distributed Computing Systems(ICDCS'13)

Data centers have become an integral part of the backbone infrastructure for
information technology. In particular, they provide a cost efficient solution
for provisioning a wide range of computing resources in diverse environments
such as business, scientific, and mobile. Due to the rapid growth of user-defined
and user-generated programs, applications and content, the complexity of d
eploying and operating data centers continues to increase. Considering the high
volume of mixed workloads, the diversity of services offered, and the increasing
mobility of users across geographically distributed areas, the performance
optimization of data centers has become ever more necessary and challenging,
especially in view of criteria such as scalability, reliability, manageability,
power efficiency, area density, and operating costs. As a result, adaptive and
autonomic optimization strategies are essential in managing the multi-dimensional
complexity of data center performance.
The goal of this workshop is to promote a community-wide discussion to find and
identify suitable strategies to enable effective and scalable data center performance
optimizations. We are looking for papers that present new techniques, introduce new
methodologies, propose new research directions, or discuss strategies for resolving
open performance problems of data centers.
