Linux is one of the most frequently used platforms in file and storage research and FAST is the premier conference for publishing research results from the file and storage research community. This summit will bring together key Linux kernel developers and academic researchers. The goal is to provide a forum for presenting and discussing current ideas in research with a group of active practitioners in the Linux Kernel.

The format will be a single session of short 25-minute talks with 5-minute questions and answers, as well as 45-minute Birds-of-a-Feather sessions (BoFs).

If you have an idea you'd like to share, or a project in the Linux Kernel that you'd like to talk about, please send a 400-word summary of the idea or project and a short description of the benefits that would be achieved by discussion with kernel practitioners and/or academics to Submissions are due by Friday January 26, 2018.
