The Flash Memory Summit (FMS) is an annual conference where companies and researchers meet to discuss the latest innovations and products in solid-state storage, non-volatile memory, and related areas. The venue of choice for major announcements by key industry players, the summit attracts worldwide attention from both within and outside the storage industry. Each year, over 4,000 people attend the summit, which includes technical presentations on new industrial and academic innovations, and industrial exhibits. The summit has been held annually since 2006.

We invite academic presentations and posters on research related to one of the following topics:
– solid-state drives (SSDs)
– persistent memory
– enterprise storage systems
– non-volatile technologies and emerging storage devices
– performance/wear analysis
– NVMe and NVMe-oF controllers
– consumer/mobile or embedded applications
– security
– testing/endurance
– high-performance computing

Presentation proposals and abstracts can be submitted online at through April 7. Publication or presentation of work in a prior venue does not preclude its presentation at the Flash Memory Summit.

Students and postdocs should send poster proposals (with your name, affiliation, a title for the work, and a short abstract) to Saugata Ghose, the university coordinator for the conference, at by March 31. This year, we will have a best poster award at the conference.

Announcements on presentations and posters selected for presentation at the summit are expected to be made by April 30. Travel grant awards will be announced at the same time. Final materials will be due on July 1, 2019. Free conference registrations are available for academic attendees (two per presentation, and one for each poster presenter).
