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

The 14th ACM Workshop on Hot Topics in Storage and File Systems (HotStorage '22) will take place June 27-28, 2022. The proceedings of HotStorage '22 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.
