Call for Papers: International Workshop on Network-Aware Data Management

The Network-Aware Data Management Workshop
to be held in conjunction with
the IEEE/ACM International Conference for High Performance Computing, Networking, Storage and Analysis
November 14th, 2011 (9:00am - 5:00pm)
Washington State Convention Center, Seattle, WA

The 1st workshop on Network-aware Data Management (NDM2011) will be held in conjunction with the International Conference for High Performance Computing, Networking, Storage and Analysis (

Scope:Accessing and managing large amounts of data is a great challenge in a collaborative environment where resources/scientists are geographically distributed. There is a need for efficient use of the network infrastructure in order to address the increasing data and compute requirements of large-scale applications. Since the amount of data is continuously growing, traditional techniques of leaving the burden on the user of moving/storing data is not a viable option in many cases. In order to deliver true exascale performance to the application layer, network-aware data management services for resource provisioning, intelligent data-flow and coordination between the host systems is highly desirable. This workshop will seek contribution from academia, government, and industry to discuss emerging trends in use of networking for data management, novel abstraction techniques for data representation, simplification of end-to-end data flow by providing transparent data services, end-to-end resource coordination, and network-aware tools for the scientific community.

Submission Guidelines:

NDM2011 workshop invite authors to submit original technical papers. Please submit full papers in PDF format via the EasyChair submission site No email submission would be accepted.

Reviewing of the full papers will be done by the program committee, assisted by external referees. The decision of the program committee is final. Papers should be self-contained. All submissions will be peer-reviewed based on correnctness, technical strenght, origianility, quality of presentation, relevance to the workshop's scope and topics of interest.

Submitted papers must be original work, have not appeared in and is not under consideration for another workshop, conference or a journal.

Accepted papers will be published in ACM or IEEE digital proceedings through SC'11.

The paper(s) should be no longer than ten (10) pages, excluding references. It should be typeset in IEEE conference format.

Please visit for more information.

Submissions that violate any of these restrictions will not be reviewed. The page limit will be enforced strictly.

Note: Please submit a short abstract one week before the paper submission deadline. Abstract submissions can be done electronically via the EasyChair submission site
