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– Full papers: should report original, previously unpublished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unpublished work for which a full paper may not be suitable.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 proceedings.

– 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.
