Special Session on Recent Advances in Storage and File Systems

Storage systems are inevitable for modern day computing. All known computing platforms ranging from handheld devices to large super computers use storage systems for storing data. A file system is a logical method for organizing and storing large amounts of information in a way which makes it easy to manage. Over the past few years, the storage and file systems have been changing rapidly due to the increasing volume and the diversity of data, the appearance of new technologies and new storage environments. The aim of this session is to bring together active researchers interested in all aspects of storage and file systems to discuss current research, results, problems, and applications. 
Authors are invited to submit papers presenting original and unpublished research in all areas related to file and storage systems including:
  • Archival Storage
  • Caching and Replication
  • Cloud Storage and Distributed Storage System
  • Cluster and Data Center Storage Architectures
  • Compile-Time and Runtime Storage Optimization
  • Compressive Sensing-based Storage for Big Data Analytics
  • Deduplication
  • Energy-Efficient Storage
  • File System Design
  • Key-Value and NoSql Storage
  • Locally Repairable Codes
  • Memory-Only Storage Systems
  • Mobile Storage

Authors should submit their papers online using EDAS. Unregistered authors should first create an account on EDAS to log on. Further guidelines for submission are posted at: http://icacci-conference.org/web/call-for-papers 
All papers that conform to submission guidelines will be peer reviewed and evaluated based on originality, technical and/or research content/depth, correctness, relevance to conference, contributions, and readability. The manuscripts should be submitted in PDF format. Acceptance of papers will be communicated to authors by email. At least one full paying author of each accepted paper must register for the Conference before the indicated deadline. Accepted and presented papers will be published in the conference proceedings and submitted to IEEE Xplore as well as other Abstracting and Indexing (A&I) databases.
