SYSTOR 2012, the 5th annual international systems and storage conference, promotes experimental and practical computer systems research encompassing (though not limited to) the following topics:

  • Operating systems, computer architecture, and their interaction
  • Distributed, parallel, and cloud systems
  • Networking, mobile, wireless, peer-to-peer, and sensor systems
  • Runtime systems and compiler/programming languages support
  • Energy/power management
  • 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 attempts to combine high-quality international systems research of practical nature with interactions between the relevant industry and academia communities. We therefore solicit paper submissions in both research and industry tracks; see the call for papers for detail. SYSTOR will additionally host distinguished keynote speakers, a highlights track (containing exciting research results accepted to a recent top-tier systems conference or journal), a poster session, and several social activities at the conference.
