Background:
The Center for Research in Intelligent Storage (CRIS) is working to understand and investigate many emerging storage systems R&D issues. The storage industry and its users are facing tremendous challenges and changes dealing with: Big Data, Preservation of Data, New Storage Technologies in HDD and SSD, New Memory Technologies as well as New Application Development and Deployment Tools to take advantage of the Cloud.

We believe it is important to bring storage system challenges to the public domain for interesting presentations and discussions from many perspectives and viewpoints. Therefore, we are organizing our Second Annual Intelligent Storage Workshop (ISW), this year looking out to try and understand the future challenges and opportunities in this dynamic industry.
