                              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
potential to improve many aspects of present and future memory
hierarchies, 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 academia 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 for technology invention, modeling, analysis, design and
application of these NVMs ranging from circuit design to system
design levels.

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 papers on various topics 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.

Important Dates
April 1: Abstract Submission Deadline
April 14: Paper Submission Deadline
June 1: Acceptance notification
June 12: Camera ready

Associated Conference: The 22nd IEEE International Conference on
Embedded and Real-Time Computing Systems and Applications (RTCSA 2016)
