  • Enigma 2020: Enigma 2020
    January 27-29, 2020, San Francisco, CA, United States

    Enigma centers on a single track of engaging talks covering a wide range of topics in security and privacy. Our goal is to clearly explain emerging threats and defenses in the growing intersection of society and technology, and to foster an intelligent and informed conversation within the community and the world. We view diversity as a key enabler for this goal and actively work to ensure that the Enigma community encourages and welcomes participation from all employment sectors, racial and ethnic backgrounds, nationalities, and genders.

    Enigma is committed to fostering an open, collaborative, and respectful environment. Enigma and USENIX are also dedicated to open science and open conversations, and will make all talk media freely available on the USENIX website.

  • NSDI '20: 17th USENIX Symposium on Networked Systems Design and Implementation
    February 25-27, 2020, Santa Clara, CA, United States

    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, single-track 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.


    Spring paper titles and abstracts due: September 12, 2019 - 11:59 pm
  • FAST '20: 18th USENIX Conference on File and Storage Technologies
    February 24-27, 2020, Santa Clara, CA, United States

    The 18th USENIX Conference on File and Storage Technologies (FAST '20) 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.
