The 4th International Workshop on
Large Scale Distributed Systems and Middleware

Zurich, Switzerland, 28-29 July 2010
Held in conjunction with PODC
In cooperation with SIGOPS pending approval
On Twitter:


LADIS 2010 will bring together researchers and practitioners in the
fields of distributed systems and middleware to discuss the
challenges of building massive distributed computing systems and
clouds. By posing research questions in the context of the largest
and most-demanding real-world systems, LADIS serves to catalyze
dialog between cloud computing engineers and scalable distributed
systems researchers, to open the veil of secrecy that has surrounded
many cloud computing architectures, and to increase the potential
impact of the best research underway in both the systems and theory

Due to the co-location with PODC, this year's LADIS will devote
special attention to promoting exchange of ideas between the theory
and systems communities on the topics related to design,
implementation, performance and underlying principles of large-scale
distributed systems and cloud computing.

This workshop invites work and promotes the exchange of ideas in the
following topics:

- Consistency, reliability and fault-tolerance models for cloud
computing infrastructures and the technologies to support them
(e.g. convergent consistency, transactions, state-machine

- Novel storage organizations for large scale systems (e.g., no-SQL
databases or key-value storage), snapshot and weak isolation
models, scalable and elastic transaction approaches
(e.g. mini-transactions), wide-area transactions.

- Large-scale infrastructure technologies (e.g. Chubby, Paxos,
Zookeeper, group membership services, distributed registries).

- Support and programming models for scalable cloud-hosted
applications and services (e.g. map-reduce, global file systems,
pub-sub, multicast, group communication).

- Power and other resource management tools (e.g. virtualization and
consolidation, resource allocation, load balancing, resource
placement, routing, scheduling).

- Privacy tools and models (e.g. digital identity management,
encrypting private data in the cloud, information flow in data

Particular attention is given to challenges unique to the
large-scale distributed systems and cloud computing domains.

The workshop will last for a day and a half, which will include a
mix of presentation of accepted papers and as well as keynotes from
prominent industry speakers who have been there, made key decisions,
and can talk about the architectures of the world's most demanding
cloud platforms.

Previous LADIS keynote and invited speakers include Gennaro Cuomo
(CTO, IBM WebSphere), Jeff Dean (Google Fellow), James Hamilton
(technology guru for Microsoft's Cloud Computing initiative, now at
Amazon), David Nichols (Microsoft Windows Live), Raghu Ramakrishnan
(Yahoo! Fellow), Ben Reed (developer of Yahoo's Zookeeper), Marvin
Theimer (Principal Engineer at Amazon), Franco Travostino and Randy
Shoup (CTO and Chief Architect for eBay).


To attend, you are invited to submit a position or short research
paper expressing new ideas, research directions, or relevant
opinions. Submissions consist of up to 5 pages using 11-point Times
Roman font, including title page with author names, and
bibliography. Submissions deviating from these guidelines will not
be reviewed. Submissions will be judged on originality, clarity,
relevance, and, above all, their likelihood of generating
discussion. Accepted papers will be published in the ACM Digital
