SCU2The 32nd International Conference on Massive Storage Systems and Technology (MSST 2016) has issued its Call for Participation & Papers. The event takes place April 30 – May 6 in Santa Clara, CA.

The Program Committee requests presentation proposals on issues in designing, building, maintaining, and migrating large-scale systems that implement databases and other kinds of large, typically persistent, web-scale stores (HSM, NoSQL, key-value stores, etc.), and archives at scales of tens of petabytes to exabytes and beyond.

Potential presentation topics include but are not limited to:

  • Web-scale, corporate, and exa-scale HPC storage systems in the 10+ Petabyte to
    Exabyte and beyond size, which may require high-bandwidth or transactional access, and
    which may require rapid growth and occasional wholesale data migration
  • Archive design and implementation for large and/or long-lived stores
  • Issues around hardware or software components (e.g., media such as disk, tape, or flash
  • NoSQL databases; open source clustering tools, etc.) that relate to designing very large
    scale storage systems

During the 2015 MSST presentation track, sessions included the following:

  • Workflows for data-intensive research
  • Disk versus tape for long-term archives
  • FLASH in integrated, scalable systems
  • State-of-the-art in high performance computing data centers
  • Challenges in building scalable systems for enterprise IT
  • Scalable object stores
  • Scalability limits for converged platforms

Abstracts are due Feb 5, 2016.
