Call for Papers

We invite you to submit your work for presentation at SYSTOR 2017, the 10th ACM International Systems and Storage Conference. The conference will take place May 22–24, 2017 in Haifa, Israel.

SYSTOR organizers aim to provide an excellent international forum for interaction across the systems research community, appealing and useful to academic and industrial researchers, welcoming both students and seasoned professionals. Following this goal, SYSTOR 2017 will host distinguished keynote speakers and offer an interactive poster session as well as social events.

A list of Program Committee members can be found here.

SYSTOR promotes experimental and practical computer systems research and welcomes both academic and industrial contributions, 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
  • Virtualization
  • Embedded and real-time systems
  • Fault tolerance, reliability, and availability
  • Deployment, usage, and experience
  • Performance evaluation and workload characterization

SYSTOR 2017 solicits submissions in four separate categories:

  • Full Papers Track - original research, at most 10 pages without the references
    Full papers submitted to SYSTOR 2017 should report original, previously unpublished high-quality research and be at most 10 pages of content, including everything except references. References may use additional pages. The program committee will review all the submitted papers and will notify the authors about the acceptance, providing feedback and requesting modifications and changes. Accepted papers will be presented at the conference in about twenty five minutes talk and included in the conference proceedings, to be published by the ACM. Please follow paper formatting instructions. The author kit, which contains the Latex style and template, is available here.
  • Short Papers Track - original research, at most 5 pages without the references
    Short papers submitted to SYSTOR 2017 should report original, previously unpublished high-quality research and be at most 5 pages of content, including everything except references. References may use additional pages. As compared to Full Papers, short paper submissions may report on 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, or fresh approaches for addressing old problems. The program committee will review all the submitted short papers and will notify the authors about the acceptance, providing feedback and requesting modifications and changes. Accepted papers will be presented at the conference in fifteen minutes talk and included in the conference proceedings, to be published by the ACM. Please follow paper formatting instructions. The author kit, which contains the Latex style and template, is available here.
  • Highlight Papers Track - papers accepted at top-tier conferences
    Highlight papers are papers that have been accepted to a recent top-tier systems conference or journal and contain exciting research results in the areas of interest to SYSTOR community. A small sub-committee will briefly review these submissions and will select the most suitable ones to be presented at SYSTOR. The corresponding presentations will then be "replayed" at SYSTOR for the benefit of the local community. A highlight paper submission should include one page containing a title and a short (1-paragraph) abstract, and an extended abstract as a single-page PDF file, which (i) explains the significance of the paper (i.e. why will this make a good highlight paper?) (ii) contains the full bibliographic reference of the highlighted paper, and a link to an on-line version (freely accessible or ACM DL / IEEE Xplore).

    Accepted submissions will not be published in the proceedings.
  • Posters Track - original work presented as poster accompanied by the extended abstract
    Authors wishing to share an early work, not yet ready for submission to a refereed conference or journal, or to describe a technical (non-marketing) innovation are welcome to submit a poster. Accepted posters will be published as an extended abstract in the proceedings in the ACM Digital Library, while authors will retain the copyright for these contributions. Authors of accepted posters are expected to prepare and present their posters and accompanying extended abstracts according to poster formatting instructions. The author kit, which contains the Latex style and template, is available here.
