Call For Papers

Workshop Scope:

High-performance storage is indispensable to high-end computing (HEC)
systems of the future. Emerging data-intensive applications from
various domains rely on high-throughput, low-latency I/O for efficient
and reliable processing and storage of large volumes of data. However,
improvements in storage performance have not been keeping pace with
the rapidly growing HEC processing power. The ever-increasing scale of
HEC systems also introduces new challenges with respect to scalability,
reliability, and manageability.

The purpose of the 1st International Workshop on High-End and Parallel
Storage Systems (HEAPS’09) is to bring together researchers and
practitioners from academia, research labs, and industry to discuss
the research issues and results in various aspects of high-end and
parallel storage systems.

HEAPS’09 will be co-held with PACT-2009 (Parallel Architectures and
Compilation Techniques,

Topics of interests include, but are not limited to:

* Parallel file and storage systems
* High-end network-attached storage and storage networks
* Traditional and emerging high-performance storage devices
* Data and metadata management for HEC systems
* Quality of Service (QoS) for storage I/O
* Scheduling and allocation of storage resources in HEC systems
* Performance and scalability
* Reliability, availability, and security of large-scale storage systems
* Archival storage in HEC systems
* Tools for HEC I/O benchmarking, tracing, performance measurement and
* HEC application I/O modeling and analysis
* Application interface to high-end and parallel storage

Important Dates:

* Extended abstract submission: July 13, 2009
* Notification of acceptance: July 24, 2009
* Full length final manuscripts due: August 15, 2009
* Workshop: September 13, 2009
