11 Mass Storage Conferences




Description

This article is from the storage FAQ part2, by Rodney D. Van Meter with numerous contributions by others.

11 Mass Storage Conferences

    There are two main academic conferences devoted specifically to mass
storage (in addition to, of course, the supercomputer and OS
conferences, and interesting stuff in databases, optical
conferences, Usenix, SOSP...).

NASA Goddard Space Flight Center and the IEEE run two conferences, in
an 18-month or so alternating pattern.

You'll find my notes on the letest Goddard conference at
http://www.isi.edu/~rdv/conferences/goddard96.html.

The contact for the NASA Mass Storage Conference (Sept. 17-19, 1996):

Jorge Scientific Corporation
7500 Greenway Center Drive
Suite 1130
Greenbelt, MD USA 20770
tel(301)220-1701
fax(301)220-1704

or if that fails email bkobler@gsfcmail.nasa.gov or
ben.kobler@gsfc.nasa.gov. There is some info available on the web at
http://esdis.gsfc.nasa.gov/msst/msst.html.

Also, the latest IEEE was in September '95:

* The 14th IEEE Mass Storage Symposium was September 11-14, 1995 at
  Monterey, CA.  More info from Bernie O'Lear (olear@ncar.ucar.edu) or
  Sam Coleman (scoleman@llnl.gov).

Also of interest, there are the conferences on Very Large Database
Systems. I have a reference somewhere...

Interesting material shows up in the SPIE conferences.
