Call For Papers

The 20th USENIX Conference on File and Storage Technologies (FAST '22) brings together storage-system researchers and practitioners to explore new directions in the design, implementation, evaluation, and deployment of storage systems. The program committee interprets "storage systems" broadly: submissions on low-level storage devices, distributed storage systems, and information management are all of interest. The conference will consist of technical presentations including refereed papers, Work-in-Progress (WiP) reports, poster sessions, and tutorials.


Topics of interest to FAST should include files and/or storage, and may overlap with other topics including, but not limited to:

    Archival systems
    Auditing and provenance
    Big data, analytics, and data sciences
    Caching, replication, and consistency
    Cloud, multi- and hybrid-cloud environments
    Data deduplication
    Database storage
    Distributed and networked storage (wide-area, grid, peer-to-peer)
    Emerging memory hierarchy design
    Empirical evaluation
    Experience with deployed systems
    File system design
    HPC systems (including parallel I/O)
    Key-value and NoSQL storage
    Memory-only storage systems
    Mobile, personal, embedded, and home storage
    Novel and emerging storage technologies (e.g., byte-addressable NVM, flash, SMR, IMR, DNA storage, glass)
    Performance and QoS
    Power-aware storage architectures
    RAID and erasure coding
    Reliability, availability, and disaster tolerance
    Search and data retrieval

In evaluating the fit of a paper for FAST, a key ingredient is the design of storage software. For instance, FAST has published a number of papers on storage technologies, such as NAND flash. A paper that only contributes hardware-level NAND flash optimizations would likely be out of scope, but such a paper could be brought into scope for FAST by demonstrating how software can leverage this novel hardware.
