Call For Papers



Interactions of NVM/Flash with Operating-Systems and Workloads
SOSP'13 Workshop, Nov 3, 2013 at Nemacolin Woodlands Resort, PA.


The goal of INFLOW’13 is to bring together researchers and practitioners
working in systems, across the hardware/software stack, who are interested
in the cross-cutting issues of NVM/Flash technologies, Operating Systems,
and emerging Workloads.

In recent years, NVM based storage devices have been gaining popularity as
a medium of storage. Flash based SSDs in particular have had a widespread
adoption by the industry driven by the need for greater storage performance.
NVM storage devices have dramatically different properties than conventional
hard disks. Yet, most of these devices are still exposed to operating systems
as block-level devices similar to hard disks. There are still several
fundamental research issues to be explored on how to efficiently interface
with NVM and Flash based storage devices, and the implications of such devices
in large scale workload deployments and on emerging workloads such as
Analytics applications.

The INFLOW Workshop is an attempt to bring top researchers across the World to
exchange ideas and discuss recent innovations related to NVM/Flash technologies
and their interactions with Operating systems and workloads, and doing this in
the context of current enterprises and consumer markets.
