Thread-topic: Special Session on "Virtualization in Distributed Systems" at PDP 2009

Dear All,


There will be a Special Session on "Virtualization in Distributed Systems" at PDP 2009. The URL for the special session on virtualisation in distributed system is http://www.cpc.wmin.ac.uk/vds09/ and the details of the call can also be found below.


Best Regards,



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 Grid computing environments
  • performance and evaluation of virtualization in distributed systems
  • virtualization enabled hardware,
  • applications of virtualization technologies in Grid computing
  • high-speed interconnect and virtualized I/O for virtualization solutions
  • virtualized I/O and storage.

 Important dates
Papers due: August 1st, 2008
Acceptance notification: October 15th, 2008
Camera-ready versions: November 23rd, 2008

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 IEEE CS. Best papers will be selected for a special issue of Journal of Systems Architecture. 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. Further submission details will soon be made available at http://www.pdp2009.org/submission.html
