Call for papers

The 11th SIGOPS Asia-Pacific Workshop on Systems will be held in Tsukuba, Japan. Building on the success of its predecessors, APSys 2020 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. This includes operating systems, virtualization, storage systems, distributed systems, mobile and embedded systems, cloud and data center systems, edge computing, data/graph analytics, networking, security and privacy, dependability, debugging, and manageability, as well as new systems contributions influenced by other fields such as hardware architecture, programming languages, machine learning and AI, databases, verification, social organization, and cryptocurrency.

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 2020 submission site.
