Call for Papers
We invite you to submit original and innovative papers to SYSTOR 2013, the 6th Annual International Systems and Storage Conference. The conference will take place June 30 - July 2, 2013 in Haifa, Israel, shortly following the ACM/IEEE International Symposium on Computer Architecture (ISCA 2013) in Tel Aviv.
SYSTOR promotes experimental and practical computer systems research including (but not limited to) the following topics:
- operating systems, computer architecture, and their interactions
- distributed, parallel, and cloud systems
- networked, mobile, wireless, peer-to-peer, and sensor systems
- runtime systems and compiler/programming-language support
- energy/power management
- file and storage systems
- security, privacy, and trust
- embedded and real-time systems
- fault tolerance, reliability, and availability
- deployment, usage, and experience
- performance evaluation and workload characterization
SYSTOR is a home for high-quality international systems research of a practical nature and welcomes both academic and industrial contributions. We solicit paper submissions in three separate categories:
- Full papers should report original, previously unpublished high-quality research, and be at most 10 pages of content, including everything except references, which may use additional pages. The program committee will review all submitted papers. Accepted papers will be presented at the conference and included in the conference proceedings, to be published by a major society.
- Short papers should report original, previously unpublished work for which a full paper may not be suitable. Short paper submissions may report on smaller ideas; unconventional ideas that are still in a preliminary stage of development; interesting negative results; experimental (in)validation of previous findings; controversial positions that challenge common wisdom; and fresh approaches for addressing old problems. Short papers may be at most 5 pages, excluding references. They will undergo the same review process as full papers. If accepted, short papers will be allocated a shorter talk slot during the conference and will also be published in the conference proceedings.
- Highlight papers should contain exciting research results that have been accepted to a recent top-tier systems conference or journal. A small sub-committee will briefly review these submissions and will select the most suitable ones for SYSTOR. The corresponding presentations will then be "replayed" at SYSTOR for the benefit of the local community. A highlight paper submission should include the full citation of the published or accepted paper and a link to it. Accepted submissions will not be published in the proceedings.
Proceedings including all (non-highlight) accepted papers will be published by the ACM. Additionally, SYSTOR 2013 will host distinguished keynote speakers, a poster session, and several social events at the conference. Our goal is to provide an excellent forum for interaction across the systems community: international, academic, and industrial, for both students and more established members.
Papers submission: Submissions must be in PDF and printable on US letter sized paper. Authors should format their papers with the ACM SIG template using 10pt font (both LaTeX and MS Word versions are available).
Submitted papers must NOT have appeared in or be under consideration for appearing in another venue such as a workshop, conference, or journal.
Poster submissions: Authors who wish to present their work as posters are required to submit a one-page PDF with a title and description (abstract) of their poster (*not* the poster itself). Submissions could represent early work that is not yet ready for submission to a refereed conference or journal, or describe a technical (non-marketing) innovation. Authors of accepted posters are expected to prepare and present their posters.
Posters should be submitted to SYSTOR general chair Ronen Kat.
