9th Annual Non-Volatile Memories Workshop
University of California, San Diego
March 11-13, 2018

The 9th Annual Non-Volatile Memories Workshop (NVMW 2018) provides a unique showcase for outstanding research on solid state, non-volatile memories. Last year’s workshop (NVMW 2017) included 40 speakers from top universities, industrial research labs, and device manufacturers and attracted nearly 230 attendees.

This year, the NVMW will present three awards: The first is the inaugural Persistent Impact Prize to recognize high-impact research published more than 5 years ago. We will also award two Memorable Paper Awards recognizing the best work published in the last 18 months.

The organizing committee is soliciting presentations on any topic related to non-volatile, solid state memories, including:
– Advances in memory devices or memory cell design.
– Characterization of commercial or experimental memory devices.
– Error correction and data encoding schemes for non-volatile memories.
– Advances in non-volatile memory-based storage systems.
– Operating system and file system designs for non-volatile memories.
– Security and reliability of solid-state storage systems.
– Applications of non-volatile memories to scientific, “big data”, and high-performance workloads.
– Implications of non-volatile memories for applications such as databases and NoSQL systems.

The program will also include a tutorial: “Caches for the Persistent Memory and Flash Era” by Ymir Vigfusson (Emory University) and Irfan Ahmad (CEO of CachePhysics).
And several keynotes including Bianca Schoeder (University of Toronto).
