Special Session on

"Virtualization in Distributed Systems"


Paper submission deadline: August 26th, 2010

Virtualization technologies in the distributed systems community are raising significant interest. The widespread deployment and the native support for hardware-assisted virtualization in the AMD and Intel processors available in today's desktops and computer clusters enable research challenges to be solved more efficiently. Virtualization technologies include virtual machines, virtual networks, virtual data, virtual storage, virtual applications, and virtual instruments. Distributed computing includes Grid computing, cluster computing, peer-to-peer computing and mobile computing.

The special session on Virtualization in Distributed Systems is intended to be a forum for the exchange of ideas and experiences on the use of virtualization technologies for distributed systems, the challenges and opportunities offered by the development of virtualization solutions themselves, as well as case studies in the applications of virtualization in distributed systems and in particular in Grid computing. The general venue will be a good occasion to share, to learn, and to discuss the latest results in this field of research.

The workshop program will include presentations of peer-reviewed papers. The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • virtualization solutions for distributed systems
  • virtualized computer clusters
  • virtualization and Desktop grids, Grid computing environments and Cloud infrastructure
  • performance and evaluation of virtualization in distributed systems
  • virtualization enabled hardware
  • applications of virtualization technologies in Grid computing, Desktop Grids and Cloud Computing
  • high-speed interconnect and virtualized I/O for virtualization solutions
  • virtualized I/O and storage
  • GPU virtualisation

Important dates

  • Papers due: August 26th, 2010
  • Acceptance notification: October 4th, 2010
  • Camera-ready versions: October 29th, 2010
  • Conference: February 9th-11th, 2011

Submission guidelines

Prospective authors should submit a full paper not exceeding 5000 words in length and including a 150-200 word abstract. To facilitate an anonymous reviewing process, the first page of the paper should contain only the title and abstract. Proceedings will be published by Conference Publishing Services (CPS). Authors of accepted papers are expected to register and present the paper at the Conference.

Papers submitted for the workshops or special sessions must be submitted through the conference submission system with an indication of the name of the workshop/special session. Papers must adhere to the formatting rules of the conference and will undergo the same review process as other papers submitted to the conference.

Paper submission will be open one month before the actual submission deadline. Submissions will be handled through www.easychair.org. Submission instructions will be hosted on this page.
