Call For Papers
SYSTOR welcomes academic and industrial papers in systems and storage, broadly construed. SYSTOR encourages submissions that describe results from experimental system prototypes, as well as experience papers describing practical deployments, and valuable lessons learned from them.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

    Big Data infrastructure
    Cloud, datacenter, and distributed systems
    Deployment, usage, and experience
    Embedded and real-time systems
    Fault tolerance, reliability, and availability
    File and storage systems
    Networked, mobile, wireless, peer-to-peer, and sensor systems
    Operating systems, computer architecture, and their interactions
    Performance evaluation and workload characterization
    Runtime systems and compiler/programming-language support
    Security, privacy, and trust
    System design or adaptation for emerging storage technologies

SYSTOR 2021 solicits submissions in five separate categories:

    Full Papers Track - original research, at most 10 pages, excluding references
    Short Papers Track - original research, at most 5 pages, excluding references
    Highlight Papers Track - papers accepted at top-tier conferences
    Posters with Extended Abstract Track - original work presented as a poster, accompanied by an extended abstract in the conference proceedings
    Informal Student Presentations - informal presentation of research findings, co-located with the poster session

A list of Program Committee members can be found here.

Research Track

SYSTOR accepts both full-length and short papers. A short paper is intended for an idea that can be described and evaluated in fewer pages; the goal of the short paper is not for preliminary work or workshop-style position papers.

A good SYSTOR paper should present a novel, compelling solution to a well-motivated problem. The evaluation should demonstrate the strengths and weaknesses of the solution in settings that are as realistic as possible, including test applications workloads, system parameters, and assumed constraints. Authors should clearly describe their contribution in the context of prior work, and draw meaningful conclusions from their work.

The program committee also encourages submissions that describe lessons learned from operational (especially large-scale) system deployments. Such submissions are expected to include sufficient details of the system, its design goals, and the methods used for evaluating whether these goals were met.

The program committee will value submissions accompanied by supplemental material such as traces and open-source code that can help reproduce the reported results, and advance additional research in the field.

A small set of outstanding papers will be forwarded to a suitable journal, such as ACM journal Transactions on Storage (TOS) or Transactions on Computer Systems (TOCS), for a fast-tracked review process for an expanded version of the paper.

Highlights Track

The highlights track gives an opportunity for research, previously published in a top-tier conference (e.g., SOSP, OSDI, FAST, ASPLOS, EuroSys, ATC, NSDI), to reach a broader audience with a second presentation (similar to ATC’s “Best of the Rest” track). Highlight papers will have a slot in the conference program for an author of the paper to present the work, but will not be republished in the conference proceedings in the ACM Digital Library.

Posters Track

SYSTOR also welcomes academic and industrial posters. See "Call for Papers" above for foci and relevant areas.

A good poster submission will articulate and motivate an interesting problem, and describe a new insight or approach to addressing this problem. It will clearly present the work in progress (or attained results), and the expected outcomes from future work. The poster should present these details in a manner that is clear and captivating.

Poster submissions should include a one-page extended abstract, and a draft of the poster. The extended abstracts of accepted posters will be included in the online conference proceedings in the ACM Digital Library.

Informal Student Posters Presentations

SYSTOR ‘21 will provide a unique opportunity for students to present their work to the broad systems and storage community. Students are encouraged to present research findings in a session co-located with the poster session.

Submissions should include a draft of a poster reflecting the approach and main results, and a 1-paragraph abstract outlining the main presentation points (not to be included in the online conference proceedings in the ACM Digital Library).
