The fourth WPOPSSS workshop was held jointly with ISC in Frankfurt, Germany. June 20, 2019
The Workshop On Performance and Scalability of Storage Systems (WOPSSS) aims to present state-of-the-art research, innovative ideas, and experience that focus on the design and implementation of HPC storage systems in both academic and industrial worlds, with a special interest on their performance analysis.
This year we will extend the scope of the workshop from HPC and Cloud to Artificial Intelligence (A). AI and Deep Learning (DL) workloads are a major trend in the industry and these domain are specifically limited by I/O bottleneck. This is why during this edition we propose contributors to specifically target I/O analysis and optimization for the AI related workload.
WOPSSS intends to encourage discussion of these issues through submissions of researchers or practitioners from both academic and industrial worlds.
The workshop is held in conjunction with the ISC-HPC during the ISC workshop day. Note that the attendance of ISC workshops requires a workshop pass.
WOPSSS is half a day workshop, for the remainder of the day, if you’re interested in I/O and storage please have a look to the sibling event at ISC: the HPC-IODC: HPC I/O in the Data Center Workshop team.
