For the health and safety of our community, the HotStorage workshop will be held in a virtual format.

The 13th ACM Workshop on Hot Topics in Storage and File Systems (HotStorage '21) will take place July 27-28, 2021 in cooperation with USENIX in association with the 2021 ACM International System and Storage Conference (SYSTOR ’21). The proceedings of HotStorage ‘21 will appear in the ACM Digital Library.

The HotStorage workshop provides a forum for cutting-edge storage research, a place where researchers and industry practitioners can discuss new opportunities and challenges in storage technology. Submissions should propose new research directions, explore non-traditional approaches, or report on noteworthy or counterintuitive learnings and experience in emerging areas. Submissions will be judged on their originality, technical merit, topical relevance, and the likelihood of leading to insightful discussions that will influence future storage systems design and applications.
