Call for Papers:

Emerging non-volatile memory (NVM) technologies (e.g., 3D NAND flash, STT-MRAM,
ReRAM, PCM, FeRAM) have attracted significant interest in recent years because
of the fast-growing performance and capacity demands on memory and storage in
the big data era. Well-known examples are the 3D XPoint memory (or Optane
storage devices), along with various NVDIMM hybrid memory and MRAM device
technologies. They have shown potential towards larger memory and storage
capacities with nearly zero leakage power, while extending memory/system
architecture design approaches. The unique characteristics of NVM technologies
not only introduce new opportunities, but simultaneously create challenges to
the designs at multiple levels of abstraction in computer systems, including
those of device management, memory/storage architecture, and system design.
Thus, for the emerging NVM technologies, there is an urgent need for technology
innovation, modeling, analysis, design, and application, ranging from
device-level to system-level.

In this special section, IEEE Transactions on Computers seeks original
manuscripts which explicitly advance the topics listed below. However, purely
theoretical papers will not be suitable for consideration in this special

Memory/Storage Architecture:
- Non-volatile register/cache design
- Non-volatile processor design
- NVM memory architectures
- NVM memory/storage management
- NVM device management regarding the issues of reliability, power,
performance, etc.
- Unification of memory and storage via NVM
- Neuromorphic architectures and processing-in-memory using non-volatile
- Hybrid NVM design, e.g., NVDIMM

System Design and Middleware:
- Compiler optimization for NVM
- System virtualization with NVM
- Non-volatile computing systems
- File system design for NVM
- NVM-based system modeling
- NVM-based system analysis
- NVM-aware algorithms (e.g., machining learning and neural network)
- In-memory computing applications leveraging NVM


The submitted papers must describe original research which is not published
nor currently under review by other journals or conferences. Extended
conference papers should contain at least 50% new content and should
include a list of changes and a copy of the previously published manuscript.
All submissions will be peer-reviewed for originality, significance,
technical soundness, practical contribution, and clarity. Authors are
invited to submit their manuscripts to IEEE Transactions on Computers
