SDMAS'08 is an international workshop held within The 2008 International Conference on Parallel and Distributed Processing Techniques and Applications .

Data management is becoming a more and more important issue in every kind of computing system. High-performance computing, data visualization, multimedia and data mining systems are examples of application areas where input/output and storage are critical issues for performance. A key challenge in those areas is how to transfer large amounts of data in and out of large-scale systems, like clusters, Grids and peer-to-peer systems. Another key point is how to transfer large amount of data in a timely manner. The aim of the workshop is to identify, discuss, and share the barriers and workarounds that have been discovered in the storage and input/output fields.

SDMAS is a forum that brings together researchers and practitioners interested in different aspects of data management systems and its applications to industry. The workshop seeks to act as a conduit for the presentation of novel approaches used in data management (from the hardware layer to the higher software layers) as well as their application to research and industry.


All accepted papers will be published in the PDPTA conference proceedings.

Best papers from the workshop will be selected by SDMAS program committee for publication in an special issue of Journal of Supercomputing (Journal Citation Report Impact Factor -> 0.398).
