  • NSDI '22: 19th USENIX Symposium on Networked Systems Design and Implementation
    April 4, 2022April 6, 2022, Renton, WA, United States

    Submissions due: March 4, 2021 - 8:59 pm

    NSDI focuses on the design principles, implementation, and practical evaluation of networked and distributed systems. Our goal is to bring together researchers from across the networking and systems community to foster a broad approach to addressing overlapping research challenges.

    NSDI provides a high-quality forum for presenting results and discussing ideas that further the knowledge and understanding of the networked systems community as a whole, continue a significant research dialog, or push the architectural boundaries of network services.

  • SOUPS 2021: Seventeenth Symposium on Usable Privacy and Security
    Submissions due: March 5, 2021 - 3:59 am

    The Symposium on Usable Privacy and Security (SOUPS) features a day of pre-symposium events, such as workshops, tutorials, hackathons, and beyond to support exploration and networking related to topics of interest to the usable privacy and security community. We invite you to submit a proposal to organize a full- or half-day event on Sunday, August 8, 2021, as part of SOUPS 2021.

    The USENIX Security Symposium brings together researchers, practitioners, system administrators, system programmers, and others interested in the latest advances in the security and privacy of computer systems and networks. The 31st USENIX Security Symposium will be held August 10–12, 2022, in Boston, MA.

    All researchers are encouraged to submit papers covering novel and scientifically significant practical works in computer security. The Symposium will span three days with a technical program including refereed papers, invited talks, posters, panel discussions, and Birds-of-a-Feather sessions.

  • FAST '22: 20th USENIX Conference on File and Storage Technologies
    February 21, 2022February 24, 2022, Santa Clara, CA, United States

    Submissions due: September 23, 2021 - 11:59 pm

    The 20th USENIX Conference on File and Storage Technologies (FAST '22) brings together storage-system researchers and practitioners to explore new directions in the design, implementation, evaluation, and deployment of storage systems. The program committee interprets "storage systems" broadly: submissions on low-level storage devices, distributed storage systems, and information management are all of interest. The conference will consist of technical presentations including refereed papers, Work-in-Progress (WiP) reports, poster sessions, and tutorials.
