Synopsis:
The tremendous need for storage capacity and I/O performance has become a critical factor for computing systems, generally, from enterprise systems to computational science and everything in between. As a result, disk I/O and data storage on which data reside have clearly become "first class citizens" in the modern information world. In addition, parallelism is now ubiquitous in computing, from multi-core processors within a single enclosure to massively parallel I/O systems that span many racks of equipment.

IEEE Micro

Title:IEEE Micro Magazine, Special Issue on Datacenter Computing
Submission Deadline:2010-02-15
Webpage:http://www.computer.org/portal/web/computingnow/micfp4
Dates:July/August 2010 Issue

Much of our computing needs today are fulfilled not from software installed in locally accessible desktop machines but from programs and services that run in large computing clusters, accessible through high-speed Internet links. Personal data, such as photos and video, is also starting to move from home devices to Internet-accessible storage services due to the added convenience of access and ease of manageability. The computing infrastructure behind these computing and storage services is the subject of this special issue.

VEE 2010

Title:International Conference on Virtual Execution Environments (VEE'10)
Submission Deadline:2010-11-09
Webpage:http://vee2010.cs.princeton.edu/
Dates:March 17th-19th, 2010
Location:Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA
Contact Email:vee10-chairs@cs.ubc.ca
Synopsis:
Virtualization, broadly speaking, is a recognition of the adage that any problem in computer science can be solved through the introduction of an additional layer of indirection. The technique is applied to modern systems at many interfaces, including hardware, OS system calls, and language runtimes. While these approaches differ in implementation, they provide similar benefits and must tackle related challenges. VEE'10 brings together researchers across the many applications of virtualization in today's systems. We invite original papers on topics relating to virtualization -- especially those that will have broad appeal across these approaches.
