Last year’s International Workshop on Virtualization Technology in Distributed Computing (VTDC) was an interesting and productive day and an exciting complement to Supercomputing.

This year’s call for papers has been announced!


Workshop on Virtualization Technologies in Distributed Computing

held in conjunction with SC 07, the International Conference for High Performance Computing, Networking and Storage.

date: November, 2007, Reno, NV, USA

General Information

The convergence of virtualization technologies and distributed computing is an exciting development and the subject of much research in both academia and industry. The VTDC workshop is intended to be a forum for the exchange of ideas and experiences on the use of virtualization technologies in distributed computing, the challenges and opportunities offered by the development of virtual systems themselves, as well as case studies of application of virtualization. The scope of “virtualization technologies” includes techniques and concepts to enable virtual machines, virtual networks, virtual data, virtual storage, virtual applications and virtual instruments. The scope of “distributed computing” includes Grid-computing, cluster computing, peer-to-peer computing and mobile computing.

VTDC 2007 topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Using virtualization technologies for resource management and QoS assurance
  • Security aspects of using virtualization in a distributed environment
  • Virtual networks
  • Virtual data and storage systems
  • Fault tolerance in virtualization
  • Virtualization in P2P
  • Monitoring techniques in virtualization
  • Virtualization-based adaptive/autonomic systems
  • Virtual datacenters
  • Virtual environment factories and services
  • Environment configuration
  • Virtual machine management
  • Modeling (applications and systems)
  • Case studies of applications using virtual technologies
  • Deployment studies of virtualization technologies
  • Tools relevant to virtualization
  • Virtualization as vehicle for outsourcing
