[HTCondor-users] CFP: IEEE ICDCS'14 Workshop on Data Center Performance (DCPerf'14) (due on Jan 24)

           Call for Papers - Submission Due Date: January 24, 2014

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

                        in conjunction with ICDCS'14:

The 34th IEEE International Conference on Distributed Computing Systems

Data centers have become an integral part of the backbone
infrastructure for information technology. In particular, they provide
a cost efficient solution for provisioning a wide range of computing
resources in diverse environments such as business, scientific, and
mobile. Due to the rapid growth of user-defined and user-generated
programs, applications and content, the complexity 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,
the performance optimization of data centers has become ever more
necessary and challenging, especially in view of criteria such as
scalability, reliability, manageability, power efficiency, area
density, and operating costs.
The goal of this workshop is to promote a community-wide discussion to
find and identify suitable strategies to enable effective and scalable
data center performance optimizations. We are looking for papers that
present new techniques, introduce new methodologies, propose new
research directions, or discuss strategies for resolving open
performance problems of data centers.
