By July 21, 2009March 4th, 2019Uncategorized

PDP 2010 – The 18th Euromicro International Conference on Parallel, Distributed and Network-Based Computing.
17-19 February 2010, Pisa, Italy,
Special Session on
“Virtualization in Distributed Systems”
Paper submission deadline: July, 27th, 2009
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: July 27th, 2009
·    Acceptance notification: October 5th, 2009
·    Camera-ready versions: October 30th, 2009
