First International Workshop on Data Sharing, Consistency and DSM systems

DSC 2007

Organized At
IEEE International Symposium on Cluster Computing and the Grid
(CCGrid 2007)
May 14-17, 2007, Rio De Janeiro


Data sharing and automatic consistency management provides ease of programming for parallel and distributed applications in cluster and grid environments. A lot of research work has been done in these research fields, especially in Distributed Shared Memory (DSM) systems. But the Grid environment comes with new challenges, e.g. scalability, fault tolerance, and network latency. The DSC 2007 workshop continues the tradition of its successful six ancestor workshops on Distributed Shared Memory with a broader scope. The workshop is organized at the CCGrid 2007 symposium and will serve as a major forum to present and share the latest research results of the work by international researchers, developers, and users. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to: We also encourage authors to present novel ideas, critique of existing work, and application examples, which demonstrate how DSC technology could be effectively deployed. We also welcome practical work which applies DSC in novel and interesting ways. You can find here program and slides of last DSM workshop.
