HPS 2020 : IEEE Workshop on High-Performance Storage
Call For Papers
IEEE Workshop on High-Performance Storage (HPS), in conjunction with IPDPS’20, New Orleans, Louisiana
Paper submission deadline January 31st, 2020
HPS is a newly established workshop that covers all aspects of High-Performance I/O and storage, including storage hardware, storage systems and libraries and I/O intensive applications.
Conference co-chairs: Katryn Mohror & Marc Snir
Program co-chairs: Gabriel Antoniu & Tony Cortes
The recent years are seeing an accelerated evolution of high-end storage systems, libraries and services, due to several reasons:
Technology: The availability of an increasing number of persistent solid-state storage technologies that can replace either memory or disk are creating new opportunities for the structure of storage systems.
Performance Requirements: Disk-based parallel file systems cannot satisfy the performance needs of high-end systems. It is not clear how solid-state storage is best used to alleviate the problem.
Application Evolution: Data analysis, including graph analytics and machine learning training are becoming increasingly important high-end applications. I/O is often a major bottleneck for such application, both in a cloud environment and in an HPC environment – especially when fast turnaround or integration of heavy computation with heavy analysis are required.
Virtualization and disaggregation: As virtualization and disaggregation become broadly used in cloud and HPC computing, the issues of virtualized storage and storage disaggregation have an increasing importance.
The workshop aims to bring together researchers and developers working on high-end storage systems, libraries and applications in HPC and clusters, and users of such systems that are interested in these issues.
Call for Papers
HPS 20120 welcomes original submissions in a range of areas, including but not limited to:
High-end storage systems
Parallel and distributed high-end storage organizations
Synergy between different storage models (POSIX file system, object storage, key-value, row-oriented and column-oriented databases)
Structures and interfaces for leveraging persistent solid-state storage
High-performing I/O libraries and services
I/O performance in high-end systems and applications
Benchmarks and performance tools for high-end I/O
Language and library support for data-centric computing
Storage virtualization and disaggregation
Active processing in storage technologies.
Ephemeral storage media and consistency optimizations
Study cases of I/O services in support of various application domains (bioinformatics, scientific simulations, large observatories and experimental facilities, etc.)
Papers should present original research and provide sufficient background material to make them accessible to the broader community.
The workshop will accept traditional research papers (8-10 pages) for in-depth topics and short papers (4-8 pages) for works in progress on hot topics.
