Call For Papers

The Thirty-First International Conference on
Massive Storage Systems and Technologies
(MSST 2015)

The 31st International Conference on Massive Storage Systems and Technologies (MSST 2015) will be held, once again, on the beautiful campus of Santa Clara University, in the heart of Silicon Valley, June 1 - 5, 2015, offering a full week dedicated to storage technology. As on previous occasions, the conference will include a tutorial day, two days of selected and invited presentations, two days of peer-reviewed research papers, and a Vendor Exhibition. Papers will be indexed by IEEE and will appear in IEEE Xplore.

Papers and presentation proposals are due March 6, 2015. Selections will be announced April 3, 2015.

Paper submission instructions, registration, logistic details, and vendor sponsorship information will be published at the conference website:
Questions are welcome through our contact page:

Presentations (June 2 - 3, 2015)

The Program Committee requests presentation proposals on issues in designing, building, maintaining, and migrating large-scale systems that implement databases and other kinds of large, typically persistent, web-scale stores (HSM, NoSQL, key-value stores, etc.), and archives at scales of tens of petabytes to exabytes and beyond. Potential presentation topics include but are not limited to:

- Web-scale, corporate, and exa-scale HPC storage systems in the 10+ Petabyte to Exabyte and beyond size, which may require high-bandwidth or transactional access, and which may require rapid growth and occasional wholesale data migration;

- Archive design and implementation for large and/or long-lived stores;

- Issues around hardware or software components (e.g., media such as disk, tape, or flash; NoSQL databases; open source clustering tools, etc.) that relate to designing very large scale storage systems.

Research Papers (June 4 - 5, 2015)

The Program Committee also requests the submission of research papers on the implementation, design, and analysis of file and storage systems. Specific areas of interest include, but are not limited to:

- Performance modeling and analysis of storage systems
- Experiences with real-world systems and data storage challenges
- Management of new and upcoming storage technologies
- Cloud storage systems and global-scale storage
- Exascale storage architecture and design
- Evaluation of networked storage architectures
- Data protection and recovery
- Data archiving
- Storage in virtualized environments
- Storage systems modeling and evaluation
- Techniques for building extremely scalable and distributed storage systems
- Parallel and distributed file systems
- Scalable metadata management
- Storage security, privacy, and provenance
- Long-term data preservation and management
- Disk and Flash based cold storage systems
- File systems for cold storage
- File systems for shingled magnetic recording hard disk drives
- File systems for solid state disk drives
- New solid state disk APIs: Object storage, key value store, memory mapping and other
- Phase change memory based storage class memory devices and systems

As is traditional, MSST will have short papers, four to six pages, and full papers, eight to fourteen pages. (References are not included in page counts.) Accepted full papers will be presented in thirty-minute sessions; short papers will be presented in a poster session with seven-minute presentations.
