Special Issue Call for Papers:

With the development of computer systems, the memory and storage technologies have been significantly advanced, including emerging non-volatile memories, NAND flash memories, shingled magnetic recording. However, the data transfer cost between CPU and storage or memory becomes the critical challenge for the advanced systems. To solve this issue, storage and memory computing provides a new opportunity by adding computing function beside or inside storage or memory devices. This has been a hot topic and widely acknowledged by academics and industries. The Special Issue on memory and storage computing of the Microprocessors and Microsystems (MICPRO) journal calls for high-quality research papers in this area. This special issue will address the controller, architecture and system design for memory and storage computing systems. It will also interest in topics about state-of-the-art storage and memory design, which is critical for the computing design, including reliability, performance and applications. Topics of interest for this special issue include, but are not limited to, the following relevant topics:

− Storage Computing Architecture

− Memory Computing Architecture

− Systems for Memory and Computing

− Systems for Storage and Computing

− State-of-the-art storage technologies

− State-of-the-art memory technologies

− FPGA enabled in storage computing

− Near Memory Computing

− Near Storage Computing


Submission Guidelines:

The papers must be written in English and describe original research neither published nor currently under review in any other journal or conference. The call and author guidelines for preparation of manuscripts can be found at All manuscripts and any supplementary material should be submitted to the Elsevier online submission system Evise of the MICPRO journal, available at: Please select “SI: MSC” from the special issue drop-down list (NOT any other special or regular issue).
