The 27th IEEE Symposium on Massive Storage Systems and Technologies (MSST 2011) will be held in Denver, Colorado, from May 23rd to 27th, 2011, and offers a full week dedicated to storage technology. This year’s conference will include a two-day research track of peer-reviewed papers on the design, implementation, and analysis of storage systems on May 26th and 27th. As with prior MSST conferences, this conference will be a top‐quality venue for presenting the latest research and development in storage systems and for meeting with colleagues from industry, academia, and government.

We encourage the submission of research papers on the implementation, design, and analysis of file and storage systems. Specific areas of interest for MSST2011 include but are not limited to:

- Performance modeling and analysis of scalable storage systems
- Techniques for building extremely scalable and distributed storage systems
- Exascale storage architecture and design
- Parallel and Distributed File Systems
- Evaluation of networked storage architectures
- Scalable metadata management
- Data protection and recovery
- Storage security, privacy, and provenance,
- Data archiving
- Approaches to long-term data preservation and management
- Storage in virtualized environments
- Cloud storage and globally scalable storage approaches
- Experience with real systems

How to participate
We encourage participation by individuals and organizations with research or practical experience, including government and commercial users, universities, research laboratories, and early adopters. We invite submissions of technical papers. For more information please visit
