The 29th IEEE Conference on Mass Storage Systems and Technologies (MSST 2013) will be held in at the beautiful UCLA Conference Center on Lake Arrowhead, CA, May 6–10, 2013, and offers a full week dedicated to storage technology. This year's conference will include a research track of peer- reviewed papers on the design, implementation, and analysis of storage systems, and experiences with storage systems on May 9th and 10th. This conference will be an excellent venue for presenting the latest research and developments in storage systems and offers a unique opportunity for meeting with colleagues from industry, academia, and government.
We encourage the submission of research papers on the implementation, design, and analysis of file and storage systems. Specific areas of interest for the MSST 2013 Research Track include (but are not limited to):

• Performance modeling and analysis of storage systems
• Experiences with real-world systems and data storage challenges
• Management of new and upcoming storage technologies
• Cloud storage systems and global-scale storage
• Exascale storage architecture and design
• Evaluation of networked storage architectures
• Data protection and recovery
• Data archiving
• Storage in virtualized environments
• Storage systems modeling and evaluation
• Techniques for building extremely scalable and distributed storage systems
• Parallel and distributed file systems
• Scalable metadata management
• Storage security, privacy, and provenance
• Long-term data preservation and management

Submission Instructions

Submissions will be handled with an online submission system; detailed instructions are available from the conference web site. Paper abstracts are due a week before full paper submissions. Abstract submission is mandatory; while the abstract may change slightly before final paper submission, the initial submission must reflect the content of the full paper. Submissions must meet the formatting guidelines posted on the conference web site.
Full 8–14 page papers will be considered for both full 30 minute presentations and the poster session; please indicate on your paper submission form if you do not want your paper to be considered for the poster session. Short paper submissions of 3–5 pages in length will only be considered for the poster session.

All papers will receive full, detailed reviews from at least 3 PC members, with acceptance notification provided by March 8. Authors of accepted papers must submit camera-ready copy incorporating reviewers’ feedback by March 29. In addition, at least one author must register to present the paper at the conference.

Submissions to MSST must not be previously published or currently under submission to another venue, and must not include plagiarized material. The MSST conference takes these rules very seriously and may take action against authors who violate them; such actions may include bans on future submissions and/or notification of the authors’ employers.

Questions about technical papers may be directed to the research program co-chairs: Ahmed Amer ( and Theodore M. Wong (
