Call For Papers

Second Workshop On Performance and Scalability of Storage Systems (WOPSSS)

Held jointly with ISC, Frankfurt, Germany June 22, 2017

** EXTENSION DEADLINE: deadline extended to April 15 **

The Workshop On Performance and Scalability of Storage Systems (WOPSSS) aims to present state-of-the-art research, innovative ideas, and experience that focus on the design and implementation of HPC storage systems in both academic and industrial worlds, with a special interest on their performance analysis.

The arrival of new storage technologies and scales unseen in previous practice lead to significant loss of performance predictability. This will leave storage system designers, application developers and the storage community at large in the difficult situation of not being able to precisely detect bottlenecks, evaluate the room for improvement, or estimate the matching of applications with a given storage architecture.

WOPSSS intends to encourage discussion of these issues through submissions of researchers or practitioners from both academic and industrial worlds.

** Topics of interest **
included but are not limited to:

Storage systems modeling and analysis tools Feed-back and empirical evaluation of storage systems Application I/O characterization Parallel I/O and storage systems: consistency, caching, replication, reliability and fault recovery overhead Network challenges and storage systems: Scalability, QoS, Partitionability Low latency storage systems usability and analysis: memory-only, Flash, NVRAM, Storage Class Memory File system design Operating system stack optimization Cloud and distributed storage

** Important Dates **

Submission deadline March 31
Author notification April 30
Camera Ready June 15
Workshop June 22

** Submission Guidelines **
Papers need to be submitted via Easychair (
Authors are invited to submit papers are required to be formatted in Springer single column LNCS style (
and within 10 pages, excluding the references.
The submissions are "single-blind", i.e. submissions are allowed to include the author names.

The workshop is held in conjunction with the ISC-HPC during the ISC workshop day. WOPSSS is co-organized with HPC-IODC workshop in order to create a full day event focused on I/O and storage. See Our cooperation includes the alignment of sessions and the potential to shift papers between the two workshops. We encourage participants to take the opportunity to attend both events.
