  • 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.

  • USENIX Security '22: 31st USENIX Security Symposium
    August 10, 2022August 12, 2022, Boston, MA, United States

    Fall submissions due: October 12, 2021 - 4:59 am

    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.

  • USENIX ATC '22: 2022 USENIX Annual Technical Conference
    July 11, 2022July 13, 2022, Carlsbad, CA, United States

    Abstract registrations due: January 7, 2022 - 7:59 am

    The 2022 USENIX Annual Technical Conference (USENIX ATC '22) seeks original, high-quality submissions that improve and further the knowledge of computing systems, with an emphasis on implementations and experimental results. We are interested in systems of all scales, from small embedded mobile devices to data centers and clouds. The scope of USENIX ATC covers all practical aspects related to computer systems, including but not limited to: operating systems; runtime systems; parallel and distributed systems; storage; networking; security and privacy; virtualization; software-hardware interactions; performance evaluation and workload characterization; reliability, availability, and scalability; energy and power management; and bug-finding, tracing, analyzing, and troubleshooting.

    We value submissions more highly if they are accompanied by clearly defined artifacts not previously available, including traces, original data, source code, or tools developed as part of the submitted work. We particularly encourage new ideas and approaches.

    Submissions must contain original unpublished material that is not under review at any other forum, including journals, conferences, and workshops with proceedings. They will be judged on relevance, novelty, technical merit, correctness, and clarity. An idea or a design that the PC committee deems flawed can be grounds for rejection.
