Special Session on

Storage architectures and Data Transfer systems for BigData and Exascale Computing

As data storage issues become more complex having the right data storage technology in place is critical for present operations and scalable growth. Modern storage systems need to handle the continuously increasing complex requirements coming from BigData, IoT and extreme scale parallel applications. The most demanding use cases can even require a distributed approach posing complex challenges not only on the storage systems but also on the data transfer solutions at the geographical level. The aim of the SDT session is to provide a forum to exchange experiences and promote discussion about storage and data management solutions, at both datacenter and distributed infrastructures levels, to efficiently handle and transfer data in reliable, fault tolerant environments. Papers concerning both hardware and software solutions will be considered.
Authors are invited to submit high quality papers representing original work from both the academia and industry in (but not limited to) the following topics:

  • Heterogeneous, multi-tier storage systems architectures and performances
  • Distributed and Parallel File systems for BigData applications
  • Scalable storage solutions for Exascale and extreme scale Computing
  • Storage solutions and data transfers systems for IoT applications
  • Advanced data transfers services in distributed environment
  • P2P data transfers systems
  • Geo-Replication and Content Delivery Network solutions
  • Smart caching solutions in distributed systems
  • Technologies for storage media
  • Smart interfaces and mobile support for data transfer services
  • Metadata management services
  • Energy-aware storage solutions
  • I/O latency optimization in heterogeneous storage systems
  • Storage Disaster Recovery and Disaster Prevention

Submission of Papers:

Prospective authors should submit a full paper not exceeding 8 pages in the Conference proceedings format (double-column, 10pt) to the conference main track or to the Special Sessions through the EasyChair conference submission system with an indication of the main track or the name of the Special Session.


Double-blind review: the paper should not contain authors names and affiliations; in the reference list, references to the authors' own work entries should be substituted with the string "omitted for blind reviewā€¯.

Publication: Proceedings will be published by Conference Publishing Services (CPS). All accepted papers will be included in the same volume, published by the Conference Publishing Services (CPS). The Final Paper Preparation and Submission Instructions will be published after the notification of acceptance. Authors of accepted papers are expected to register and present their papers at the Conference. Conference proceedings will be submitted to IEEE explore, CDSL, and for indexing among others, to DBLP, Scopus ScienceDirect, and ISI Web of Knowledge.
