Call for Papers
We invite you to submit original and innovative papers to SYSTOR
2014, the 7th ACM International Systems and Storage Conference.
The conference will take place between June 10–12, 2014 in Haifa,
SYSTOR promotes experimental and practical computer systems
research, including the following topics:
- Operating systems, computer architecture, and their interactions
- Distributed, parallel, and cloud systems
- Networked, mobile, wireless, peer-to-peer, and sensor systems
- Runtime systems and compiler/programming-language support
- File and storage systems
- Security, privacy, and trust
- Embedded and real-time systems
- Fault tolerance, reliability, and availability
- Deployment, usage, and experience
- Performance evaluation and workload characterization
SYSTOR is a home for high-quality international systems research
of a practical nature and welcomes both academic and industrial
contributions. We solicit paper submissions in three separate
- Full papers: should report original, previously
unpublished high-quality research, and be at most 10 pages of
content, including everything except references, which may use
additional pages. The program committee will review all submitted
papers. Accepted papers will be presented at the conference and
included in the conference proceedings, to be published by the ACM.
- Short papers: should report original, previously
unpublished work for which a full paper may not be suitable. Short
paper submissions may report on smaller ideas; unconventional
ideas that are still in a preliminary stage of development;
interesting negative results; experimental (in)validation of
previous findings; controversial positions that challenge common
wisdom; and fresh approaches for addressing old problems. Short
papers may be at most 5 pages, excluding references. They will
undergo the same review process as full papers. If accepted, short
papers will be allocated a shorter talk slot during the conference
and will also be published in the conference proceedings.
- Highlight papers: should contain exciting research
results that have been accepted to a recent top-tier systems
conference or journal. A small sub-committee will briefly review
these submissions and will select the most suitable ones for
SYSTOR. The corresponding presentations will then be "replayed" at
SYSTOR for the benefit of the local community. A highlight paper
submission should include the full citation of the published or
accepted paper and a link to it. Accepted submissions will not be
published in the proceedings.
SYSTOR 2014 will host distinguished keynote speakers, a poster
session, and several social events at the conference. Our goal is to
provide an excellent forum for interaction across the systems
community: international, academic, and industrial, for both
students and more established members.
Submissions must be in PDF format and printable on US letter size
paper. Authors should format their papers with
the ACM SIG template using 10pt font (both LaTeX and
MS Word versions are available). Proceedings including all
(non-highlight) accepted papers will be published by
the ACM. At least one co-author of
each accepted paper must attend the conference and present the
Submitted papers must NOT have appeared in or be under
consideration for appearing in another venue such as a workshop,
conference, or journal.
Call for Posters
Authors who wish to present their work as posters are required to
submit a one-page PDF with a title and description (abstract) of
their poster (not the poster itself). Submissions could
preferably represent early work that is not yet ready for submission
to a refereed conference or journal, or describe a technical
(non-marketing) innovation. Authors of accepted posters are expected
to prepare and present their posters.
- The proceedings for SYSTOR 2014 will be published in the
ACM Digital Library. Accepted
papers should use either the ACM Word or
LaTeX style templates for the camera-ready copy.
Please direct technical questions to:
- The contact author should receive via email a request from the ACM
to fill-out the rights management form. The ACM requires that
authors submit this form in order to be included in the proceedings.
Please do so prior to uploading your camera-ready paper.
- SYSTOR is planning to make a recording of your talk
available in the ACM Digital Library as part of the conference
proceedings. If you wish to include the recording of the talk in the
proceedings, please make sure you check the video recording on the
ACM rights management form.
- Please apply ACM Computing Classification categories and terms.
The templates provide space for this indexing and point authors to
the Computing Classification Scheme
