Dear Sir or Madam,

(We apologize if you receive multiple copies of this message)

4th Workshop on Interfaces and Architectures for Scientific Data Storage (IASDS)
September 24 2012, held in conjunction with IEEE Cluster 2012 in Beijing, China
Paper Submission Deadline: May 25, 2012

High-performance computing simulations and large scientific experiments generate tens of terabytes of 
data, and these data sizes grow each year. Existing systems for storing, managing, and analyzing data 
are being pushed to their limits by these applications, and new techniques are necessary to enable 
efficient data processing for future simulations and experiments.

This workshop will provide a forum for engineers and scientists to present and discuss their most recent 
work related to the storage, management, and analysis of data for scientific workloads. Emphasis will be 
placed on forward-looking approaches to tackle the challenges of storage at extreme scale or to provide 
better abstractions for use in scientific workloads.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

   * parallel file systems
   * scientific databases
   * active storage
   * scientific I/O middleware
   * extreme scale storage
