Conference Location
Call For Papers
Authors are invited to submit original and innovative papers to the Refereed Papers Track of the 2018 USENIX Annual Technical Conference. We seek high-quality submissions that further the knowledge and under­standing of modern computing systems with an emphasis on implementations and experimental results. We encourage papers that break new ground, present insightful results based on practical experience with computer systems, or are important, independent reproductions/refutations of the experimental results of prior work. USENIX ATC '18 has a broad scope, and specific areas of interest include (but are not limited to):

    Architectural interaction
    Big data infrastructure
    Cloud and edge computing
    Distributed and parallel systems
    Embedded systems
    Energy/power management
    File and storage systems
    Internet of Things
    Machine learning and systems interactions
    Mobile and wireless
    Networking (WAN, LAN, and datacenter) and network services
    Operating systems
    Reliability, availability, and scalability
    Security, privacy, and trust
    System and network management and troubleshooting
    Usage studies and workload characterization

USENIX ATC '18 is especially interested in papers broadly focusing on practical techniques for building better software systems: ideas or approaches that provide practical solutions to significant issues facing practitioners. This includes all aspects of system development: techniques for developing systems software; analyzing programs and finding bugs; making systems more efficient, secure, and reliable; and deploying systems and auditing their security.

Reports of deployment experience and operations-oriented studies, as well as other work that studies software artifacts, introduces new data sets of practical interest, or impacts the implementation of software components in areas of active interest to the community are well-suited for the conference.

The conference seeks both long-format papers consisting of 11 pages and short-format papers of 5 pages, including footnotes, appendices, figures, and tables, but not including references. Short papers will be included in the proceedings and will be presented as normal but in sessions with slightly shorter time limits.

Best Paper Awards

Cash prizes will be awarded to the best papers at the conference. Please see the USENIX proceedings library for Best Paper winners from previous years.

Best of the Rest Track

The USENIX Annual Technical Conference is the senior USENIX forum covering the full range of technical research in systems software. Over the past two decades, USENIX has added a range of more specialized conferences. ATC is proud of the content being published by its sibling USENIX conferences and will be bringing a track of encore presentations to ATC '18. This "Best of the Rest" track will allow attendees to sample the full range of systems software research in one forum, offering both novel ATC presentations and encore presentations from recent offerings of ATC's sibling conferences.
