The 4th Annual Non-Volatile Memories Workshop (NVMW 2013) provides a unique
showcase for outstanding research on solid state, non-volatile memories. It
features a “vertically integrated” program that includes presentations on
devices, data encoding, systems architecture, and applications related to these
exciting new data storage technologies. Last year’s workshop (NVMW 2012)
included 32 speakers from top universities, industrial research labs, and
device manufacturers and attracted nearly 200 attendees. (The website for NVMW
2012 can be found at http://nvmw.ucsd.edu/2012.) NVMW 2013 will build on this
The workshop will be held March 3-5th, 2013 at the University of California,
The organizing committee is soliciting presentations on any topic related to
non-volatile, solid state memories, including:
* Advances in memory devices or memory cell design.
* Characterization of commercial or experimental memory devices.
* Error correction and data encoding schemes for non-volatile memories.
* Advances in non-volatile memory-based storage system design (e.g., SSDs)
* New applications of non-volatile memories.
* Operating system and file system designs for non-volatile memories.
* Non-volatile storage system performance measurements.
* Security and reliability of solid-state storage systems.
The goal is to facilitate the exchange of the latest ideas, insights, and
knowledge that can propel future progress. To that end, presentations may
include new results or work that has already been published during the 18
months prior to the submission deadline. In lieu of printed proceedings, we
will post the slides and extended abstracts of the presentations
online. Presentation of new work at the workshop does not preclude future
Workshop submissions should be in the form of a 2-page presentation
abstract. Submissions will be evaluated on the basis of impact, novelty, and
The submission deadline is November 12th 2012, with notification of acceptance
by January 31, 2013.
Further details on abstract submission, technical program, tutorials, travel,
social program, and travel grant will be provided on this website.
