HPC-IODC 2017 : HPC I/O in the Data Center Workshop
Call For Papers
The 3rd HPC I/O in the Data Center Workshop (HPC-IODC 2017)
conjunction with ISC High Performance on Thursday June 22nd, 2017, in
Note that we allow virtual participation during the workshop for
authors of research papers!

questions asked in comments.

** Workshop overview **
Managing scientific data at large scale is challenging for scientists
but also for the host data center. The storage and file systems
deployed within a data center are expected to meet users' requirements
for data integrity and high performance across heterogeneous and
concurrently running applications.
With new storage technologies and layers in the memory hierarchy, the
picture is becoming murkier. To effectively manage the data load
within a data center, I/O experts must understand how users expect to
use these new storage technologies and what services they should
provide in order to enhance user productivity. We seek to ensure a
systems-level perspective is included in these discussions.
In this workshop we bring together I/O experts from data centers and
application workflows to share current practices for scientific
workflows, issues and obstacles for both hardware and the software
stack, and R&D to overcome these issues.
The workshop content is build on two tracks:
1) research papers – submit a short paper regarding relevant research
for I/O in the datacenter.
2) talks from I/O experts – you'll need to submit a rough outline for your talk.
Contributions to both tracks are peer reviewed and require submission
of the respective research paper or idea for your presentation via
The HPC-IODC workshop is half day but embedded into a full-day program
for I/O that we organize with the team of the WOPSSS
(http://wopsss.org/). Our cooperation includes the alignment of
sessions and the potential to shift papers between the two workshops.
We encourage participants to take the opportunity to attend both
