IASDS 2010 (http://www.mcs.anl.gov/events/workshops/iasds10/)
In conjunction with IEEE Cluster 2010 (http://www.cluster2010.org/)

High-performance computing simulations and large scientific
experiments such as those in high energy physics generate tens of
terabytes of data, and these data sizes grow each year. Existing
systems for storing, managing, and analyzing data are being pushed to
their limits by these applications, and new techniques are necessary
to enable efficient data processing for future simulations and

This workshop will provide a forum for engineers and scientists to
present and discuss their most recent work related to the storage,
management, and analysis of data for scientific workloads. Emphasis
will be placed on forward-looking approaches to tackle the challenges
of storage at extreme scale or to provide better abstractions for use
in scientific workloads.


Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

- parallel file systems
- scientific databases
- active storage
- scientific I/O middleware
- extreme scale storage


Workshop papers will be peer-reviewed and will appear as part of the
IEEE Cluster 2010 proceedings. Submissions must follow the Cluster
2010 format:

PDF files only.
Maximum 10 pages.
8.5x11-inch, Two-column numbered pages in IEEE Xplore format


Paper Submission Deadline: June 21, 2010
Author Notification: July 16, 2010
Final Manuscript: July 30, 2010
Workshop: September 24, 2010
