Workshop on Virtualization Technologies in Distributed Computing (VTDC 2010)

in conjunction with the 19-th International Symposium on High Performance Distributed Computing (HPDC-19)

Chicago, Illinois, USA, June 22, 2010


Virtualization has proven to be a powerful enabler in the field of distributed computing and has led to the emergence of the cloud computing paradigm and the provisioning of Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS). This new paradigm raises challenges ranging from performance evaluation of IaaS platforms, through new methods of resource management including providing Service Level Agreements (SLAs) and energy- and cost-efficient schedules, to the emergence of supporting technologies such as virtual appliance management.

For the last three years, the VTDC workshop has served as a forum for the exchange of ideas and experiences studying the challenges and opportunities created by IaaS/cloud computing and virtualization technologies. VTDC brings together researchers in academia and industry who are involved in research and development on resource virtualization technologies and on techniques applied to the management of virtualized environments in distributed systems.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

VTDC 2010 topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

* Infrastructure as a service (IaaS)
* Virtualization in data centers
* Virtualization for resource management and QoS assurance
* 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-based adaptive/autonomic systems
* The creation and management of environments/appliances
* Virtualization technologies
* Performance modeling (applications and systems)
* Virtualization techniques for energy/thermal management
* Case studies of applications on IaaS platforms
* Deployment studies of virtualization technologies
* Tools relevant to virtualization


Submitted papers should be limited to 8 pages (including tables, images, and references) and should be formatted according to the ACM SIGS Style. Please use the official HPDC conference submission site to submit your paper; only pdf format is accepted. All papers will receive at least three reviews.
Submission implies the willingness of at least one of the authors to register
or the workshop and present the paper. The authors of the best paper in the workshop will receive a best-paper award.


The proceedings of the workshop will be published by the ACM.


Submission deadline: March 1, 2010 (11:59 PM EST)
Author notification: March 26, 2010
Final papers due: April 14, 2010
