JST CREST High-performance Dependable Advanced Storage System Project
ADvanced Storage System workshop (ADSS2005)

Co-located with 4th Usenix Conference on File And Storage Technologies(FAST2005)

December 16-17, 2005.
San Francisco, California, USA

[Overview] [Invited Talk] [Program] [Venue] [Organization] [Sponsor]

NOTE: The room of workshop is Washington Room


The Advanced Storage System Workshop(ADSS) is dedicated to discussion of the theory and the experience of storage system.

2nd ADSS will be held to provide a forum for researchers from United States and Japan to come together to discuss and exchange new research, tools and practices as well as to identify new issue and possible direction for future research and development work on storage system.


About Invited Speakers

We are delighted to announce that we have been able to invite five world famous researchers of storage systems from the U.S.A. and Japan as invited speakers of the ADSS2005 .
