                                                      CALL FOR PAPERS

                                            Fourth Annual Workshop on
                              I/O in Parallel and Distributed Systems

                                              in conjunction with the
                      ACM 1996 Federated Computing Research Conference
                                                      May 27-28, 1996
                                                      Philadelphia, PA

                                Sponsored by (pending final approval):
                                                            ACM SIGACT
                                                          ACM SIGARCH
                                                          ACM SIGOPS
                                                            IEEE TCOS

    In 1996, its fourth year, IOPADS graduates from an informal workshop
held in conjunction with IPPS, to a format more like a symposium to be
co-located with many others at FCRC '96. The thrust of IOPADS has
always been to bring together researchers in all aspects of parallel
I/O, which we broadly place into five categories: architecture,
algorithms, applications, file and operating systems, and compilers
and runtime systems. It is our opinion that the problems of parallel
I/O are most effectively addressed by investigating all these areas
rather than working in each area in isolation. Although I/O-related
papers appear in many other conferences, the value of IOPADS is in
gathering interested researchers from all these areas of computer
science, encouraging cross-disciplinary interaction, rather than
working in each area in isolation.

    Through ACM Press, IOPADS will publish a formal proceedings, which
will be provided to all registrants and will be available for sale at
FCRC and afterwards.

    Papers are invited on related topics, including but not limited to
        * Experimental characterization of I/O demand
        * Design and implementation of I/O-intensive applications
        * Real-time and multimedia I/O
        * Parallel I/O issues in database systems
        * Theory and implementation of parallel I/O algorithms
        * I/O-subsystem architecture
        * Empirical evaluation of parallel I/O subsystems
        * Language and compiler support for parallel I/O
        * Operating-system support for parallel I/O
        * Concurrent and parallel file systems

    Papers submitted to IOPADS must be unpublished and must not
submitted for publication elsewhere. All papers will be reviewed by a
blind referee process, with decisions made by the Program Committee as
a whole. The first page, which will be withheld from reviewers, must
include only the title, names of all authors, and the telephone number
and electronic mail address of the contact author. The text of the
paper, including the title and abstract (but no author information)
should start on the second page. The manuscript should be at most 20
8.5 x 11 or A4 pages long (including figures, tables, and references
but excluding the page withheld from reviewers), typeset with a
10-point font on 20-point spacing, i.e., double spaced. Electronic
submission (of PostScript) is strongly encouraged (details available
on the Web page below, or contact the Program Chair). For hard-copy
submission, send 7 copies of the paper (preferably double-sided) to
the Program Chair. All submissions, electronic or hard copy, must
arrive by 6 P.M. Eastern Time on October 17, 1995. Decisions will be
announced by December 22, 1995.
