Call for papers

The ninth SIGOPS Asia-Pacific Workshop on Systems will be held in Jeju Island, South Korea. Building on the success of its predecessors, APSys 2018 will continue to be a lively forum for systems researchers and practitioners across the world to meet, interact, and collaborate with their peers from the Asia/Pacific region. APSys takes a broad view of systems and solicits papers from various fields of systems, including but not limited to:

  • Operating systems, their interaction with hardware architecture and programming languages, and vice versa
  • Virtualization, including its novel applications
  • File and storage systems
  • Network systems including both wired and wireless networks
  • Mobile, wireness, embedded and pervasive systems
  • Cloud computing and data center management
  • Systems for Big Data Analytics
  • Distributed systems, theory and practice
  • Internet of Things
  • System energy characterization and optimization
  • Testing and verification of computer systems
  • Measurement, monitoring, and modeling
  • Reliability, scalability, and fault tolerance
  • Security and privacy
  • Systems for machine learning and AI
  • Experience with deployed systems
  • Application of interesting research ideas to computer systems, such as machine learning and stochastic modeling.

The workshop favors works with an experimental flavor such as measurement and prototyping.

Submission Guidelines

Submissions should be six or fewer pages in length excluding references, formatted in standard ACM two-column conference style with 10-pt font size. Reviewing will be double-blind: no author or affiliation information should appear in the submission. The authors should additionally follow the best practice in order not to disclose their identities implicitly. A submission may present preliminary results, propose a new research direction, provide insightful retrospective, or offer a provocative viewpoint on an important systems topic. Papers will be selected based on their likelihood of generating insightful technical discussions at the workshop and influencing future systems research. Relevant attributes include originality, technical merit, clarity, and technical relevance. Accepted papers will appear in the proceedings of the workshop, which will be published in the ACM Digital Library. Consistent with standard scholarly practice, the authors should not have substantially similar work in review anywhere else.

Submissions can be made online at the APSys 2018 submission site.
