10th USENIX Workshop on Hot Topics in Storage and File Systems

July 9–10, 2018
Boston, MA, USA
Co-located with

Please join us in Boston, MA, USA for HotStorage '18. The purpose of the HotStorage workshop is to provide a forum for the cutting edge in storage research, where both researchers and industry practitioners can exchange and debate new opportunities in our field. The workshop seeks submissions that explore longer-term challenges and opportunities in storage technology and research. Submissions should propose new research directions, advocate non-traditional approaches, or report on noteworthy learnings and experience in emerging areas. We particularly value submissions that effectively advocate fresh, unorthodox, unexpected, controversial, or counterintuitive ideas for advancing the state of the art.

The full program will be available in early May, please check back.
