Well this is a little too late, but finally having time to log it. I’ve been in Ukraine two months ago attending the CSIT2009 (Computer Science and Information Technologies 2009) conference. I Presented my new paper describing “SLOOK” a new disk scheduling algorithm. Working with Dr. Hanady Abdulsalam and Dr. Ayed Salman. I’ve also implemented SLOOK into Disksims, so I might release a new version soon. The algorithm proved to be effective in minimizing disk head seek time. Full paper here. It’s a nice country by the way!!
