VenueNiagara Fa, Canada Canada



Topics/Call fo Papers

The DMTF Academic Alliance announces the creation of the fourth workshop dedicated to academic research on standards and new technologies for systems and virtualization management. This event comes in addition to the technical and developers' events organized for several years by the DMTF, and will take place the week of October 25 in Ontario, Canada.

The primary theme of SVM 2010 will be "Systems and Virtualization Management: Standards and the Cloud". With the advent and increasing popularity of Cloud Computing, systems management and virtualization management technology has taken on increasing importance. The goal of SVM 2010 is to illuminate related standards and research issues, covering areas such as: what are the implications of standards for virtualization in Cloud Computing, what advances in information models and protocols aid in managing Clouds, what new problems will we incur when managing Cloud offerings and services, and how management itself might benefit from virtualization and the Cloud. Submissions on topics related to managing Clouds, virtualization of distributed resources/services and work in management standardization are thus particularly encouraged.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

Management of Compute Clouds
Management of Storage Clouds
Use of Virtualization for Management
Key management issues
Infrastructure for management
Managing IaaS infrastructure
Use and extension of management standards
System management techniques
Network, Server, and Desktop management
Information models for management
Instrumentation and metrics for management
Diagnostics and Fault management
Management Behavior and State modeling
Web services and SOA
Managing SaaS infrastructure
Web services based management
Development and use of management protocols
Use of SOA in management of distributed systems
New management paradigms
Management automation
Policy-based management
Experience implementing and deploying management technology

Authors are requested to submit either long or short papers via the conference submission software:

Long papers presenting research results (up to 12 single-spaced single-column pages)
Short papers describing research work-in-progress or position statements (up to 6 pages)

Submitted papers will be rigorously reviewed by the technical program committee members and the reviewers they invite. After the notification the authors of accepted papers will be asked to follow a particular typesetting format to prepare their papers for publication. Accepted papers will be published in Springer proceedings.
