   Second Workshop on Dependable Distributed Data Management (WDDDM'2008)
                affiliated with EuroSys 2008 Conference
                   March 31, 2008, Glasgow, Scotland

ABOUT

The goal of the workshop is to bring together researchers and practitioners
from systems, database and dependability communities to discuss the current
state of the art, pending challenges and trends, and novel solutions in the
design, implementation and deployment of distributed and dependable data
management systems.

SCOPE

Relational databases have been for a long time the keystone of information
systems' dependability. Database management systems (DBMS) offer a uniform
approach to data integrity, durability, and availability, using tried and
tested techniques based on a set of unanimously accepted and well understood
assumptions.

However, the expectations on the DBMS itself are changing and there is an
unprecedented call for a complete rewrite: The general purpose relational DBMS
architecture dating back from the 70's is being convincingly challenged by a
number of specialized systems for text indexing, data warehousing, stream
processing, and array storage. Most strikingly, the winds of change are felt
even within the common enterprise data center, where the widespread need for
practical scale-out and near zero downtime translates to an increased appetite
for cheap and efficient consistent replication and for shared-nothing clusters
built on commodity hardware and software.

Novel peer-to-peer applications, grid computing, and the emergence of cloud
computing further push the envelope for radically different data management
solutions. A major trend in all such emerging proposals, with a profound
impact in dependability, is that large scale distribution is a core assumption
in their design. This translates in very large number of nodes, wide area
geographical distribution, diverse administrative domains, and pervasive
heterogeneity.
CFP: Ws. Dependable Distributed Data Management (with EuroSys 2008)
It is thus desirable to reevaluate time tested assumptions that underly the
dependability mechanisms in database management systems and explore different
performance and functionality tradeoffs. And explore the consequences on
complex information systems built on them.

TOPICS

Topics of interest to the workshop include, but are not limited to:

 * System assumptions for dependability and performance 
 * Novel application scenarios and consistency requirements
 * Scaling-out to very large number of nodes: peer-to-peer databases and
   the data grid 
 * Autonomic versus orchestrated central control
 * Diversity and software reliability

FORMAT

The workshop welcomes two kinds of contributions: 

 * Short position papers with early and/or controversial ideas that foster
   discussion but are not (yet) fully developed. The maximum size is 4 pages
   in the ACM Conference Proceedings style. 

 * Research papers which present mature original work. The maximum size
   is 10 pages in the ACM Conference Proceedings style. 

Since submissions must strictly adhere to ACM Conference Proceedings style,
submitters are strongly encouraged to use the ACM SIG Proceedings Templates.
In order to get included in the EuroSys 2008 proceedings CD, accepted
contributions must be presented at the workshop and comply with the ACM
Copyright Policy.
