We invite researchers and engineers to submit technical academic papers to the 6th Annual International Workshop on Innovating the Network for Data Intensive Science (INDIS) 2019. The workshop will be held in conjunction with the SC19: IEEE/ACM International Conference for High Performance Computing, Networking, Storage and Analysis, which will be held in Denver, CO, on Sunday, November 17, 2019.
We invite papers that propose new and novel techniques that increase the capacity and functionality of scientific computing and wide-area networks. This workshop encourages submissions that address one or more of the following networking research challenges; and developments that are essential in the information systems infrastructure for the scientific discovery process.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:


  • Data-intensive distributed application architectures
  • Software-defined networking (SDN) and Network Function Virtualization (NFV) in service of data science applications
  • High performance data transfer applications and techniques
  • Science DMZs and other campus network architecture constructs
  • Requirements and issues for network quality of service (QoS) or experience (QoE)
  • Multi-domain networking, including hybrid clouds, multi-domain authorization, data sharing and data privacy
  • Network monitoring and traffic analytics, autonomous network control
  • Network management: diagnostics, troubleshooting, fault management, performance monitoring, configuration management and scheduling
  • High-performance network protocols and network architectures
  • Securing high-speed networks
  • Cross-layer network architectures and concepts

We also welcome participants from SCinet to present high quality experimental papers on their latest designs and solutions. SCinet, as the high-speed network engine of the SC conference, represents state of the art, connects many demonstrators of big science data processing infrastructures at the highest line speeds, deploys the newest technologies available, and demonstrates novel functionality. The show floor network connects to many laboratories and universities worldwide using high-bandwidth connections.
