Book of Abstracts: Cloud Services for Synchronisation and Sharing -- CS3 Workshop -- ETH Zurich January 2016


Book of Abstracts: Cloud Services for Synchronization and Sharing

18-19 January 2016, ETH Zürich, Switzerland

New cloud storage services allow groups of researchers to share, transfer and synchronize data in simple but powerful ways.

The objective of this workshop is to share experiences and progress in cloud storage services. The usage of recently deployed services in the scientific community is rapidly expanding. Users are actively interested in new solutions for their growing data needs: new tools and enhanced data sharing capabilities enable new solutions. At the same time, the technology space is quickly evolving and many research institutes, service providers, software development teams and companies look into different approaches in the area of Cloud Services for Synchronisation and Sharing.

In the workshop we will review the state-of-the-art technologies for Cloud Services for Synchronisation and Sharing and evaluate the experience in running such services for technical and scientific communities. We especially invite user communities to report on current and planned usage, novel applications and innovative workflows. We invite technology and service providers to present their services, including the evolution of existing implementations towards Cloud Storage Services.

Topics of interest:

  1. Innovative user applications and workflows with cloud storage services
  2. Protocols and semantics for file sharing and synchronization
  3. Consistency and scalability of file synchronization services
  4. Backend storage technologies
  5. Federated access to cloud storage
