7th Workshop on Interfaces and Architectures for Scientific Data Storage
(IASDS 2015)
September 1-4, 2015, held in conjunction with ICPP 2015 in Beijing, China

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.

The needs of scientific applications have triggered a continuous increase in
scale of parallel systems, as demonstrated by the evolution of Top 500.
However, the computation scale has not been matched by an increase in I/O
scale. For example, in the design of earlier supercomputers the parallel I/O
bandwidth was 1GBps for every TFLOP, whereas in the current solutions is
1GBps for every 10TFLOPS. This increased bottleneck makes even more pressing
the need to employ the I/O subsystem in the most efficient solution
possible. Scalable I/O has been already identified as critical for the PFLOP
systems. The future exascale systems forecasted for 2018-2020 will
presumably have O(1B) cores and will be hierarchical in both platform and
algorithms. This hierarchy will imply a larger path in pipelining the data
from cores to storage and vice-versa, exposing even more the I/O latency
perceived by the current MPP architectures.

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 middlewares
extreme scale storage
analysis of large data sets
NoSQL storage solutions and techniques
energy-aware file systems

All papers will be reviewed by at least 3 independent reviewers from the
international program committee. Papers will be selected based on their
originality, their interest for the research community, the quality of the
use-case description, the description of the technical solution, the impact
of the application and/or technical description and the status of the work.
All papers presented at the main conference and workshops will be submitted
to IEEE Xplore for publication and EI indexing. Acceptable submissions
include short papers and work-in-progress reports, as well as full papers.
