The ACM International Systems and Storage Conference (SYSTOR) is an international forum for interaction across the systems research community. The program includes innovative, peer-reviewed research papers in the broad area of systems, as well as distinguished keynote lecturers, a poster session, and social events. ACM SYSTOR is designed to engage academic and industrial researchers and practitioners, welcoming both students and seasoned professionals.


SYSTOR welcomes academic and industrial papers in systems including storage, cloud and distributed systems, networking, and systems security, broadly construed. SYSTOR encourages submissions that describe results from experimental system prototypes, as well as experience papers describing practical deployments, and valuable lessons learned from them.

This year, we are broadening the scope to also include research on systems issues in AI and/or sustainability, including those that involve workload optimization, data processing, lifecycle of systems, carbon footprint transparency, and system re-designs.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Systems and workload optimization for AI/ML systems
  • Sustainability/carbon footprint of computer and network systems
  • System security and trust
  • Big Data infrastructure
  • Cloud, edge, data center, and distributed systems
  • Embedded and real-time systems
  • Fault tolerance, reliability, and availability
  • File and storage systems
  • Networked, mobile, wireless, peer-to-peer, and sensor systems
  • Operating systems, computer architecture, and their interactions
  • Performance evaluation and workload characterization
  • Runtime systems and compiler/programming-language support
  • System deployment, usage, and experience
  • System design or adaptation for emerging storage technologies
  • Virtualization and containers
  • Storage 3.0


The conference this year will be physical.

By submitting a research paper you agree to make the maximal effort that at least the presenting author will attend in person. However, in case of justifiable circumstances, we may allow a video-recorded presentation with online availability for Q&A.

Highlight papers must be presented in person, therefore by submitting a highlight paper you agree that at least the presenting author will attend in person.
