SYSTOR has a broad scope, promoting experimental and practical computer
systems research encompassing the following topics:

– Operating systems, computer architecture, and their interactions
– Distributed, parallel, and cloud systems
– Networked, mobile, wireless, peer-to-peer, and sensor systems
– Runtime systems and compiler/programming-language support
– File and storage systems
– Security, privacy, and trust
– Virtualization
– Embedded and real-time systems
– Fault tolerance, reliability, and availability
– Deployment, usage, and experience
– Performance evaluation and workload characterization

– Full & short paper submission: March 5, 2015
– Highlights paper submission: April 30, 2015
– Paper notification: April 5, 2015
– Camera-ready submission: April 17, 2015
– Poster submission: April 30, 2015
– Poster notification: May 11, 2015

SYSTOR is a home for high-quality international systems research of a
practical nature and welcomes both academic and industrial contributions. We
solicit paper submissions in three separate categories:

– Full papers: should report original, previously unpublished high-
quality research, and be at most 10 pages of content, including everything
except references, which may use additional pages. The program committee
will review all submitted papers. Accepted papers will be presented at the
conference and included in the conference proceedings, to be published by
the ACM.

– Short papers: should report original, previously unpublished work for
which a full paper may not be suitable. Short paper submissions may report
on smaller ideas; unconventional ideas that are still in a preliminary stage
of development; interesting negative results; experimental (in)validation of
previous findings; controversial positions that challenge common wisdom; and
fresh approaches for addressing old problems. Short papers may be at most 5
pages, excluding references. They will undergo the same review process as
full papers. If accepted, short papers will be allocated a shorter talk slot
during the conference and will also be published in the conference

– Highlight papers: should contain exciting research results that have
been accepted to a recent top-tier systems conference or journal. A small
sub-committee will briefly review these submissions and will select the
most suitable ones for SYSTOR. The corresponding presentations will then be
“replayed” at SYSTOR for the benefit of the local community. A highlight
paper submission should include the full citation of the published or
accepted paper and a link to it. Accepted submissions will not be published
in the proceedings.

SYSTOR 2015 will host distinguished keynote speakers, a poster session, and
several social events at the conference. Our goal is to provide an excellent
forum for interaction across the systems community: international, academic,
and industrial, for both students and more established members.
