Workshop on Virtualization Technologies in Distributed Computing

held in conjunction with SC 07, the International Conference for 
High Performance Computing, Networking and Storage.

date: November, 2007, Reno, NV, USA

General Information 

The convergence of virtualization technologies and distributed 
computing is an exciting development and the subject of much research 
in both academia and industry. The VTDC workshop is intended to be a 
forum for the exchange of ideas and experiences on the use of 
virtualization technologies in distributed computing, the challenges 
and opportunities offered by the development of virtual systems 
themselves, as well as case studies of application of virtualization.

The scope of "virtualization technologies" includes techniques and 
concepts to enable virtual machines, virtual networks, virtual data, 
virtual storage, virtual applications and virtual instruments. The 
scope of "distributed computing" includes Grid-computing, cluster 
computing, peer-to-peer computing and mobile computing.

VTDC 2007 topics of interest include, but are not limited to: 

-	Using virtualization technologies for resource management and QoS 
-	Security aspects of using virtualization in a distributed 
-	Virtual networks
-	Virtual data and storage systems
-	Fault tolerance in virtualization
-	Virtualization in P2P 
-	Monitoring techniques in virtualization
-	Virtualization-based adaptive/autonomic systems
-	Virtual datacenters
-	Virtual environment factories and services
-	Environment configuration
-	Virtual machine management
-	Modeling (applications and systems)
-	Case studies of applications using virtual technologies
-	Deployment studies of virtualization technologies
-	Tools relevant to virtualization
-	Virtualization as vehicle for outsourcing

Paper Submission

Authors are invited to submit original and unpublished work that 
exposes a new problem, advocates a specific solution, or reports on 
actual experience. Papers should be submitted as full-length 8 page 
papers of double column text using single spaces 10pt size type on an 
8.5"x11" paper, as per IEEE manuscript guidelines. Paper submission 
instructions will be placed on the workshop web page at 
http://workspace.globus.org/vtdc07. Presentations will be invited 
based on the originality, technical merit, and topical relevance of 
their submissions.
