April 30 is the last date for Poster Submission!


Submissions of a practical and experimental nature are solicited. The conference is open to all systems research topics, including (but not limited to):

  • General computer systems issues in operating systems, architecture, memory hierarchy, compilation, hypervisors and embedded systems
  • Distributed systems such as peer-to-peer systems, sensor networks and overlays, fault-tolerance, and resource allocation
  • Storage systems issues related to long-term preservation, archival storage, Internet-scale storage, replication and consistency, designs with solid-state devices and phase-change memory
  • Cross-cutting issues such as workload modeling, performance metrics, power consumption, security, usability, and experience with real systems and failures
  • Performance aspects of computing systems with emphasis on end-to-end performance issues, analysis, improvements and detection, including performance tools that addresses these aspects

In particular, we would like to emphasize the following themes:

  • Cloud systems: security, consistency and reliability, storage architectures, performance tooling
  • Virtualization infrastructure and virtualization-aware system design
  • Multi-core architectures and the operating system facilities and programming environments that use them
  • Power consumption and management
  • Managing the explosive growth in storage and the increasing need to store, find and manage data for long periods

Papers not related to these themes may also be submitted.

For the academic track, papers should report original research; if part of the material submitted was published previously, the paper should so indicate, and should provide substantial additional results and material.

For the industrial track, we are looking for technical presentations that describe the technology behind real products and the considerations that shaped the product's design and functionality.

Paper Submissions
Paper Submissions should be up to 14 pages in 11 pt font formatted using a double-column layout on A4 or US Letter paper. The 11pt SIGPLAN templates can be used. Both LaTeX and MS Word versions are available. The natbib package suggested for LaTeX can be found here. To submit, please use the SYSTOR 2010 submission website. Submitted papers will be reviewed by the program committee. Proceedings including all accepted papers will be published by ACM in the ACM Digital Library. For the industrial track, it is acceptable to submit a short proposal for a presentation in lieu of a full paper as described above. Please include sufficient detail to exhibit the technical merit of the proposed presentation. We encourage accepted industrial presentations to also write a paper for the proceedings, but this is not compulsory.

Poster submissions
Students who wish to present their work are required to submit a short (up to one page of PDF) abstract to the SYSTOR_POSTERS track using the conference web site http://www.ssrc.ucsc.edu/systor10/ by April 30. Submissions could represent early work that is not yet ready for submission to a refereed conference or journal. Submissions will be reviewed and evaluated by the program committee, and
notification on acceptance will be sent by May 10.

If accepted, students will be required to prepare a 70 x 100 cm poster and present it in the session.
