  • NSDI '24: 21st USENIX Symposium on Networked Systems Design and Implementation
    April 16, 2024April 18, 2024, Santa Clara, CA, United States

    Fall submissions due: September 14, 2023 - 8:59 pm
  • FAST '24: 22nd USENIX Conference on File and Storage Technologies
    February 27, 2024February 29, 2024, Santa Clara, CA, United States

    Submissions due: September 21, 2023 - 11:59 pm

    The 22nd USENIX Conference on File and Storage Technologies (FAST '24) brings together storage-system researchers and practitioners to explore new directions in the design, implementation, evaluation, and deployment of storage systems. The program committee interprets "storage systems" broadly: submissions on low-level storage devices, distributed storage systems, and information management are all of interest. The conference will consist of technical presentations including refereed papers, and poster sessions. As with recent conferences, several papers may be selected for fast tracking to a special section/issue of ACM’s Transaction on Storage journal (ACM TOS).

  • USENIX Security '24: 33rd USENIX Security Symposium
    August 14, 2024August 16, 2024, Philadelphia, PA, United States

    Fall submissions due: October 18, 2023 - 4:59 am

    The USENIX Security Symposium brings together researchers, practitioners, system administrators, system programmers, and others interested in the latest advances in the security and privacy of computer systems and networks. The 33rd USENIX Security Symposium will be held August 14–16, 2024, in Philadelphia, PA, USA.

    All researchers are encouraged to submit papers covering novel and scientifically significant practical works in computer security.

  • OSDI '24: 18th USENIX Symposium on Operating Systems Design and Implementation
    July 10, 2024July 12, 2024, Santa Clara, CA, United States

    Submissions due: November 30, 2023 - 2:59 pm

    The 18th USENIX Symposium on Operating Systems Design and Implementation seeks to present innovative, exciting research in computer systems. OSDI brings together professionals from academic and industrial backgrounds in a premier forum for discussing the design, implementation, and implications of systems software. OSDI emphasizes innovative research and quantified or insightful experiences in systems design and implementation.

    OSDI takes a broad view of the systems area and solicits contributions from many fields of systems practice, including operating systems, file and storage systems, distributed systems, cloud computing, mobile systems, secure and reliable systems, systems aspects of big data, embedded systems, virtualization, networking as it relates to operating systems, and management and troubleshooting of complex systems. We also welcome work that explores the interface to related areas such as computer architecture, networking, programming languages, analytics, and databases. We encourage contributions with highly original ideas, new approaches, and groundbreaking results.
