                              Call for Papers


The 4th IEEE Non-Volatile Memory Systems and Applications Symposium (NVMSA)

                     Daegu, Korea       August 17-19, 2016




Non-Volatile memory (NVM) technologies have demonstrated great potentials on
improving many aspects of present and future memory hierarchy, offering high
integration density, larger capacity, zero standby power and good resilience
to soft errors. The recent research progress of various NVMs, e.g., NAND
flash, PCM, STT-RAM, RRAM, FeRAM, etc., have drawn tremendous attentions
from both academy and industry. Besides developing robust and scalable
devices, the unique characteristics of these NVM technologies, such as
read-write asymmetry, stochastic programming behavior,
performance-power-nonvolatility tradeoff etc., introduce plenty of
opportunities and challenges for novel circuit designs, architectures,
system organizations, and management strategies. There is an urgent need of
technology invention, modeling, analysis, design and application of these
NVMs ranging from circuit design level to system level.


IEEE Non-Volatile Memory Systems and Applications Symposium (NVMSA) provides
a fantastic opportunity for global nonvolatile memory researchers from
different communities to discuss and exchange knowledge, ideas, and
insights, and to facilitate the establishment of potential collaborations
that can speed up the progress in the design and application of NVMs. An
expanded technical program will be offered in NVMSA 2016 for the audience
from academy and industry. The organizing committee is soliciting various
topics on related to NVMs including (but not limited to):


Device/Circuit design of NVMs

* Emerging Non-volatile Memory Circuit Design

* NVM Device Design

* Error correction for NVMs

* Nonvolatile Logic Circuit Design


NVM Architectures and Systems

* Non-volatile Registers

* Non-volatile Memory Architectures

* Non-volatile Cache Design

* NVM-based Neuromorphic Architectures

* NVM-based Storage


NVM Software

* Operating System Support for NVM

* Compiler Optimization for NVM

* NVM-based File Systems

* NVM-based Storage Software

* NVM-based Databases

* NVM Controller Design


NVM Applications

* In-memory Computing

* NVM for Big Data Analytics

* NVM in Mobile Healthcare Applications

* NVM in Wearable Applications

* NVM and the Internet of Things


The topics of NVMSA cover the research and development advances in both
mainstream and emerging NVMs. The event is designed to foster interaction
and presentation of early results, new ideas and speculative directions.
Thus, NVMSA will combine the presentations of the papers accepted from the
regular submissions as well as a number of invited talks from researchers in
academia, technologists from industry, and case studies on the use of NVMs.
Participating authors are invited to submit six-page manuscripts to the
conference and all accepted papers will be published in the conference
proceeding. Conference content will be submitted for inclusion into IEEE
Xplore as well as other Abstracting and Indexing (A&I) databases. The
extensions of some selected papers will be published in a special issue of
The Journal of Systems Architecture:

Embedded Software Design.
