Call For Papers

- Call for Participation and Papers

The 32nd International Conference on Massive Storage Systems and Technologies (MSST 2016) will be held, once again, on the beautiful campus of Santa Clara University, in the heart of Silicon Valley, April 30 - May 6th, 2016, offering a full week dedicated to storage technology. As on previous occasions, the conference will include three tutorial days, two days of selected and invited presentations, two days of peer-reviewed research papers, and a Vendor Exhibition.


- Presentations (May 3 - 4, 2016)

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.

During the 2015 MSST presentation track, sessions included the following:

 Workflows for data-intensive research;
 Disk versus tape for long-term archives;
 FLASH in integrated, scalable systems;
 State-of-the-art in high performance computing data centers;
 Challenges in building scalable systems for enterprise IT;
 Scalable object stores
 Scalability limits for converged platforms

- Research Papers (May 5 - 6, 2016)

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, but are not limited to:

- Exascale storage architecture and design
- Parallel and distributed file systems
- Designs of integrating parallel programming and distributed storage systems
- Scalable metadata management
- Techniques for building extremely scalable and distributed storage systems
- Cloud storage systems and global­scale storage
- Performance modeling and analysis of storage systems
- Experiences with real­world systems and data storage challenges
- Data protection and recovery
- Data archiving
- Data compression and deduplication
- Long­term data preservation and management
- Storage for virtualized environments
- Storage security, privacy, and provenance
- 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, key­value stores, and others
- I/O stacks for low­latency storage devices
- Phase change memory based storage class memory devices and systems
- Storage solutions usability and consumability

As is traditional, MSST will solicit short (4­-6 pages) and full (8­-14pp) papers. References are not included in page
counts. Details on the paper format are available on the conference website.
