Non-Volatile memory (NVM) technologies have demonstrated great potential to
improve many aspects of present and future memory hierarchies, offering high
integration density, larger capacity, zero standby power and good resilience
to soft errors. The recent research progress of various NVMs, e.g., NAND
flash, PCM, STT-RAM, RRAM, FeRAM, etc., have drawn tremendous attentions from
both academia and industry. Besides developing robust and scalable devices,
the unique characteristics of these NVM technologies, such as read-write
asymmetry, stochastic programming behavior, performance-power-nonvolatility
tradeoff, etc., introduce plenty of opportunities and challenges for novel
circuit designs, architectures, system organizations, and management
strategies. There is an urgent need for technology invention, modeling,
analysis, design and application of these NVMs ranging from circuit design to
system design levels.

IEEE Non-Volatile Memory Systems and Applications Symposium (NVMSA) provides a
fantastic opportunity for global nonvolatile memory researchers from different
communities to discuss and exchange knowledge, ideas, and insights, and to
facilitate the establishment of potential collaborations that can speed up the
progress in the design and application of NVMs. An expanded technical program
will be offered in NVMSA 2016 for the audience from academy and industry. The
organizing committee is soliciting papers on various topics related to NVMs
including (but not limited to):

Device/Circuit design of NVMs
– Emerging Non-volatile Memory Circuit Design
– NVM Device Design
– Error correction for NVMs
– Nonvolatile Logic Circuit Design

NVM Architectures and Systems
– Non-volatile Registers
– Non-volatile Memory Architectures
– Non-volatile Cache Design
– NVM-based Neuromorphic Architectures
– NVM-based Storage

NVM Software
– Operating System Support for NVM
– Compiler Optimization for NVM
– NVM-based File Systems
– NVM-based Storage Software
– NVM-based Databases
– NVM Controller Design

NVM Applications
– In-memory Computing
– NVM for Big Data Analytics
– NVM in Mobile Healthcare Applications
– NVM in Wearable Applications
– NVM and the Internet of Things

The topics of NVMSA cover the research and development advances in both
mainstream and emerging NVMs. The event is designed to foster interaction and
presentation of early results, new ideas and speculative directions. Thus,
NVMSA will combine the presentations of the papers accepted from the regular
submissions as well as a number of invited talks from researchers in academia,
technologists from industry, and case studies on the use of NVMs.
Participating authors are invited to submit six-page manuscripts to the
conference. All accepted papers will be published in the conference
proceedings. Conference content will be submitted for inclusion into IEEE
Xplore as well as other Abstracting and Indexing (A&I) databases.
Extensions of some selected papers will be published in a special issue of The
Journal of Systems Architecture: Embedded Software Design.
