The 2019 Mass Storage MSST conference has issued its Call for Papers.

MSST 2019 will focus on distributed storage system technologies, including persistent memory, new memory technologies, long-term data retention (tape, optical disks…), solid state storage (flash, MRAM, RRAM…), software-defined storage, OS- and file-system technologies, cloud storage, big data, and data centers (private and public). The conference will also put the spotlight on current challenges and future trends in storage technologies.”

Since the conference was founded by the leading national laboratories, MSST has been a venue for massive-scale storage system designers and implementers, storage architects, researchers, and vendors to share best practices and discuss building and securing the world’s largest storage systems for high-performance computing, web-scale systems, and enterprises.

The Research Program Committee requests the submission of research papers on the implementation, design, and analysis of file and storage systems. Specific areas of interest include:

  • Exascale storage architecture and design
  • Parallel and distributed file systems
  • Designs of integrating parallel programming and distributed storage systems
  • Storage security and privacy
  • Storage provenance
  • Scalable metadata management
  • Techniques for building extremely scalable and distributed storage systems
  • Cloud storage systems and global-scale storage
  • Performance modeling and analysis of storage systems
  • Experiences with real-world systems and data storage challenges
  • Data protection and recovery
  • Data archiving
  • Data compression and deduplication
  • Long-term data preservation and management
  • Storage for virtualized environments
  • Disk and flash based primary and cold storage systems
  • File systems for shingled magnetic recording hard disk drives
  • File systems for solid state disk drives
  • Tiered storage – Storage virtualization
  • Networked storage architectures
  • New storage APIs: object storage, key-value stores, and others
  • I/O stacks for low-latency storage devices – Storage class memory devices and systems, such as phase change memory
  • Storage solutions usability
  • New memory technologies

MSST 2019 will include a day of tutorials, two days of invited papers, and two days of peer-reviewed research papers. The conference will be held, once again, on the beautiful campus of Santa Clara University, in the heart of Silicon Valley.
