MEMSYS Europe - The International Symposium on Memory Systems  <>  21–23 June 2017, Frankfurt am Main

Call for Papers - www.memsys.io

We invite you to submit papers and talk abstracts to the inaugural MEMSYS Europe conference, to be held June 2017 in Frankfurt, Germany. MEMSYS has become the premiere US forum for research in memory systems, including hardware and software aspects, from technology and devices up to compilers and programming models. Due to popular demand for a European meeting, MEMSYS will be held in Europe this upcoming June, and you are cordially invited.

Important Dates

	Submission: 10 March*, 2017
	Notification: 14 April, 2017 
	Camera-Ready: 28 April, 2017

	* There will be an automatic submission extension of one week

Submission Formats
	1–2 page Abstracts 
	5–6 page Position Papers
	10+ page Research Papers

	Conference paper layout, using ACM’s paper templates required
	blind submission (no authors listed), up to 16 pages in length

	All accepted submissions will be presented, published 
	in the ACM Digital Library, and included in the printed 
	conference proceedings. 

	Note: Submitting either an Extended Abstract or a Position 
	Paper will not preclude an author from submitting their work, 
	in a longer research format, to any other publication forum at a later date. 


Memory-device manufacturing, memory-architecture design, and the use of memory technologies by application software all profoundly impact today’s and tomorrow’s computing systems, in terms of their performance, function, reliability, predictability, power dissipation, and cost. Existing memory technologies are seen as limiting in terms of power, capacity, and bandwidth. Emerging memory technologies offer the potential to overcome both technology and design related limitations to answer the requirements of many different applications. The goal of this conference is to bring together researchers, practitioners, and others interested in this exciting and rapidly evolving field, in order to update each other on the latest state-of-the-art technology, exchange ideas, and discuss future challenges.

Conference Schedule and Venue

This inaugural event will be held at the Mövenpick Hotel in Frankfurt am Main, with an opening reception & poster session Wednesday evening, followed by two full days of technical presentations on Thursday & Friday and an Awesome Awards Banquet Thursday evening. 

Tracks and Topics

Tracks on the following topics are being organized and will be presented over the 2-day conference:

	- Memory-centric programming models, programming languages, and compiler optimization
	- Difficulties integrating different memory types into the software stack
	- Memristors, other nonvolatile memories, and compute-in-memory technologies
	- Emerging memory technologies, their controllers, and novel uses
	- Memory systems, IP, SoC, controllers in automotive applications
	- Interference at the memory level across datacenter applications
	- Issues in the design and operation of large-memory machines
	- In-memory databases and NoSQL stores
	- Memory limitations in AI/ML applications and architectures
	- Post-CMOS scaling efforts and memory technologies to support them, including cryogenic, neural, and heterogeneous memories

This CFP seeks papers and talks on these and other related topics.

Submissions and Presentations

Our primary goal is to showcase interesting ideas that will spark conversations between disparate groups—to get applications people, operating systems people, system architecture people, interconnect people, and circuits people all to talk to each other. We accept extended abstracts, position papers, and/or full research papers, and each accepted submission is given a 20-minute presentation time slot. All accepted papers will be published in the ACM Digital Library.
