The 17th USENIX Conference on File and Storage Technologies (FAST '19)


会议名称:The 17th USENIX Conference on File and Storage Technologies (FAST '19)










The 17th USENIX Conference on File and Storage Technologies (FAST '19) brings together storage-system researchers and practitioners to explore new directions in the design, implementation, evaluation, and deployment of storage systems. The program includes three days of technical sessions, Work-in-Progress reports (WiPs), a poster session, and Birds-of-a-Feather sessions (BoFs).

FAST '19 also offers in-depth training in the latest techniques, effective tools, and best strategies.


FAST accepts both full-length and short papers. Both types of submissions are reviewed to the same standards and differ primarily in the scope of the ideas expressed. Short papers are limited to half the space of full-length papers. The program committee will not accept a full paper on the condition that it is cut down to fit in the short paper page limit, nor will it invite short papers to be extended to full length. Submissions will be considered only in the category in which they are submitted.


Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

Archival storage systems

Auditing and provenance

Big data, analytics, and data sciences

Caching, replication, and consistency

Cloud storage

Data deduplication

Database storage

Distributed and networked storage (wide-area, grid, peer-to-peer)

Empirical evaluation of storage systems

Experience with deployed systems

File system design

High-performance file systems

Key-value and NoSQL storage

Memory-only storage systems

Mobile, personal, embedded, and home storage

Parallel I/O and storage systems
