  • FAST '19: 17th USENIX Conference on File and Storage Technologies
    February 25-28, 2019, Boston, MA, United States

    The 17th USENIX Conference on File and Storage Technologies (FAST '19) brings together storage-system researchers and practitioners to explore new directions in the design, implementation, evaluation, and deployment of storage systems. The program committee will interpret "storage systems" broadly; papers 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.

    FAST accepts both full-length and short papers. Both types of submissions are reviewed to the same standards and differ primarily in the scope of the ideas expressed. Short papers are limited to half the space of full-length papers. The program committee will not accept a full paper on the condition that it is cut down to fit in the short paper page limit, nor will it invite short papers to be extended to full length. Submissions will be considered only in the category in which they are submitted.


    Submissions due: September 26, 2018 - 11:59 pm
  • SREcon19 Americas: SREcon19 Americas
    March 25-27, 2019, Brooklyn, NY, United States

    This year, SREcon Americas will focus on comprehension, understandability and predictability. We'll pursue this theme across the technical landscape, foundational principles, culture and values, and organizational aspects of the profession. How do we observe our systems? How do we tackle complexity through being able to see into our systems? How do we understand our systems' interactions with each other? How do we interact together and collaborate as groups of people? And how do our systems impact people's lives?

    SREcon attendees want to discuss robust solutions to system engineering problems, particularly in high-stakes environments. Beyond simply presenting new approaches and solutions, explain your reasoning behind them—what principles did you work from? How did those principles guide and shape the solution? If you're presenting a case study, how did you learn and improve from your experience?


    Submissions due: November 6, 2018 - 8:59 pm
  • USENIX Security '19: 28th USENIX Security Symposium
    August 14-16, 2019, Santa Clara, CA, United States

    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 28th USENIX Security Symposium will be held August 14–16, 2019, in Santa Clara, CA, USA.

    Important: The USENIX Security Symposium is moving to multiple submission deadlines for USENIX Security '19. This change includes changes to the review process and submission policies. Detailed information is available at USENIX Security Publication Model Changes.

    All researchers are encouraged to submit papers covering novel and scientifically significant practical works in computer security. There will be two quarterly submission deadlines for USENIX Security '19. Submissions for the winter quarter deadline are due on Thursday, November 15, 2018, 5:00 p.m. PST. Submissions for the spring quarter deadline are due on Friday, February 15, 2019, 5:00 p.m. PST. The Symposium will span three days with a technical program including refereed papers, invited talks, posters, panel discussions, and Birds-of-a-Feather sessions. Co-located events will precede the Symposium on August 12 and 13.


    Fall quarter paper submissions due: November 15, 2018 - 5:00 pm
