    Call for Papers - Submission Due Date (Extended): February 7, 2014

The 4th IEEE International Workshop on Data Center Performance (DCPerf'14)
                Madrid, Spain, June 30 - July 3, 2014
                 in conjunction with IEEE ICDCS'14:

The 34th IEEE International Conference on Distributed Computing Systems 

Data centers have become an integral part of the backbone infrastructure 
information technology. In particular, they provide a cost efficient 
for provisioning a wide range of computing resources in diverse 
such as business, scientific, and mobile. Due to the rapid growth of user-
defined and user-generated programs, applications and content, the 
of deploying and operating data centers continues to increase. Considering 

the high volume of mixed workloads, the diversity of services offered, and 

the increasing mobility of users across geographically distributed areas, 
performance optimization of data centers has become ever more necessary 
challenging, especially in view of criteria such as scalability, 
manageability, power efficiency, area density, and operating costs.

The goal of this workshop is to promote a community-wide discussion to 
and identify suitable strategies to enable effective and scalable data 
performance optimizations. We are looking for papers that present new 
techniques, introduce new methodologies, propose new research directions, 
discuss strategies for resolving open performance problems of data
