Workshop announcement

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

Important Dates:

  • Paper Submission Deadline: May 25, 2012 extended deadline: June 1, 2012
  • Author Notification: June 22, 2012
  • Final Manuscript Due: July 7, 2012
  • Workshop: September 24, 2012 IMPORTANT: workshop rescheduled to September 28, 2012!


  • Philip Carns, Argonne National Laboratory (co-organizer)

Impact factor of previous IASDS workshops

This is the impact factor of previous IASDS workshops as calculated using Google Scholar, April 2012:

  • 2009: 7
  • 2010: 3
  • 2011: 0.5
  • overall: 3.5

The impact factor is calculated as the average number of citations across all accepted papers.
