Call For Papers

8th International Workshop on System Management Techniques, Processes, and Services (SMTPS'12)

*** submission deadline extended to Jan 13, 2012

May 21, 2012
Shanghai, China
To be held in conjunction with IPDPS 2012

Workshop scope

The Eighth International Workshop on System Management Techniques, Processes and Services (SMTPS) will be held
in conjunction with the International Parallel and Distributed Processing Symposium (IPDPS). We would like to invite
the pioneers in computer systems management to contribute their latest research. The special focus of the
workshop in 2012 is on cloud computing.

Virtualization technologies and cloud computing have enabled unprecedented flexibility and elasticity in
provisioning of applications and services, and have resulted in larger numbers and types of entities that
must be managed. As the numbers of both physical and virtual resources in data centers continue to increase,
the need for efficient and scalable systems management processes plays an increasingly critical role in coping with
the complexity involved in effectively harnessing such resources.

Many issues in systems management within a traditional computing environment remain challenging and are
amplified in cloud computing environments - for instance, the need to provide satisfactory and continuous services
to applications even in the presence of system failures. On the other hand, there are new challenges and opportunities
posed by cloud computing, which call for different solutions. For example, management of computing infrastructure,
platform and software as service offerings in the forms of private, public, hybrid and federated cloud datacenters with
thousands of servers and a wide variety of software stacks brings in challenges for tomorrow's systems. SMTPS brings
together researchers and practitioners to define and discuss the issues and challenges and share early findings
in systems management in the emerging cloud computing paradigm.
