16th IEEE Mass Storage Systems Symposium
7th NASA Goddard Conference on Mass Storage Systems and Technologies

March 15-18, 1999
San Diego, CA

Sponsored by the
Mass Storage Systems Technical Committee (MSSTC)
in cooperation with the
NASA Goddard Space Flight Center

Information-based Access to Storage:
The Foundation of Information Systems

Information is an essential component of the world's economy, and the control and delivery of information is critical to the success of companies. The amount of information that is now being managed requires advanced mass storage systems that are tightly integrated with information management systems. The scale of data collections is growing from terabytes to petabytes, with the number of managed objects growing from millions to billions.

The integration of archival storage systems into databases and digital libraries has started. The 16th IEEE Symposium on Mass Storage and Seventh NASA Goddard Space Flight Center Conference on Mass Storage will focus on the storage issues surrounding the integration of archives into information management systems.
