# First International Workshop on Challenges and Opportunities of HPC Storage Systems (CHAOSS)

The workshop is aimed at researchers, developers of scientific applications, engineers and everyone interested in the evolution of HPC storage systems. As the developments of computing power, storage and network technologies continue to diverge, the performance gap between them widens. This trend, combined with the growing data volumes, results in I/O and storage bottlenecks that become increasingly serious especially for large-scale HPC storage systems. The hierarchy of different storage technologies to ease this situation leads to a complex environment which will become even more challenging for future exascale systems.

This workshop is a venue for papers exploring topics related to data organization and management along with the impacts of multi-tier memory and storage for optimizing application throughput. It will take place at the Euro-Par 2020 conference in Warsaw, Poland on either August 24 or 25, 2020. More information is available at: https://wr.informatik.uni-hamburg.de/events/2020/chaoss

## Important Dates

Paper Submission:        May 8, 2020
Notification to Authors: June 30, 2020
Registration:            July 10, 2020
Camera-Ready Deadline
(Informal Proceedings):  July 10, 2020
Workshop Dates:          August 24 or 25, 2020
Camera-Ready Deadline:   September 11, 2020

## Submission Guidelines

Papers should not exceed 12 pages (including title, text, figures, appendices and references). Papers of less than 10 pages will be considered as short papers that can be presented at the conference but will not be published in the proceedings.

Papers must be formatted according to Springer's LNCS guidelines available at https://www.springer.com/gp/computer-science/lncs/conference-proceedings-guidelines. Accepted papers will be published in a separate LNCS workshop volume after the conference. One author of each accepted paper is required to register for the workshop and present the paper.

Submissions will be submitted and managed via EasyChair at: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=europar2020workshop

## Topics of Interest

Submissions may be more hands-on than research papers and we therefore explicitly encourage submissions in the early stages of research. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

- Kernel and user space file/storage systems
- Parallel and distributed file/storage systems
- Data management approaches for heterogeneous storage systems
- Management of self-describing data formats
- Metadata management
- Approaches using query and database interfaces
- Hybrid solutions using file systems and databases
- Optimized indexing techniques
- Data organizations to support online workflows
- Domain-specific data management solutions
- Related experiences from users: what worked, what didn't?
