Call for Papers

The last few years have seen a resurgence of interest in the apparently simple practice of keeping data safe and intact from both malicious attackers and the vagaries of fate and happenstance. Our current storage systems perform well when everything is going as planned; but one media error can result in hours or days of downtime. Likewise, one lost disk containing valuable data can result in millions of dollars of damage (and possible legal consequences).

A growing respect for Murphy's Law is inspiring a new wave of storage system research: When things do go (inevitably) wrong, how to salvage the wreckage? Traditionally, storage systems architects have focused on run-time performance and reliability, with little thought for repair and checking. A large expanse of mostly unexplored research territory in storage and security stretches out in front of us. Security and survivability are intertwined, as we not only want to keep our data available to the right people, but to keep it unavailable to the wrong people.

This workshop will be an opportunity for cross-disciplinary contact between the security and storage community. In addition, this year we will be especially encouraging interaction with industry and the open source community. Our goal is to foster a robust, lively discussion shaping existing ideas and inspiring new research directions.

Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

The StorageSS workshop solicits short papers up to 6 pages and will consider strong abstracts. Wild and controversial ideas are especially encouraged. The workshop will be structured to focus on face-to-face discussion and integration of people from storage, security, industry, and the open source community. To foster this interaction, we will include invited talks and/or panels.

Please contact the program chair at chair07 [at] dot storagess dot org if you have any questions about the relevance of a paper or topic.
