Call for Papers: Active Storage

The increasing need to process data closer to the storage as well as the growing demand for enhancing data privacy and protection raises new challenges and opportunities for near-data processing across various computing domains. Within this context, the “active storage” area of JSys welcomes a wide range of research contributions in all aspects of designing, implementing, and evaluating near-storage data processing architectures, system software, storage systems, programming abstractions, security, privacy, and data reduction and processing techniques.

Topics of Interests

  • New algorithms and data reduction techniques for near-storage data processing
  • Novel hardware architectures (e.g., FPGA-based) support for near-data processing in memory, storage, network, and accelerators
  • System software and application software including but-not-limited to key-value stores, databases, and file-system
  • Topics related to the design and development of Computational Storage devices and architectures
  • Security and privacy techniques focused on enhancing active storage
  • Techniques for handling data reliability
  • Experimental evaluations and benchmarks for active storage systems
  • Experiences, observations, and lessons learned from real-world deployments
  • Design and development of new programming abstractions and compilers
If you are unsure whether your work is a good fit for this area, please send a short abstract or description to the area chair(s); they will be happy to give some initial feedback.
