12th ACM SIGOPS Asia-Pacific Workshop on Systems (APSys 2021)
**Call For Papers**
APSys takes a broad view of systems. This includes operating systems, virtualization, storage systems, distributed systems, mobile, and embedded systems, cloud, and data center systems, edge computing, data/graph analytics, networking, security and privacy, dependability, debugging, and manageability, as well as new systems contributions influenced by other fields such as hardware architecture, programming languages, machine learning, and AI, databases, verification, social organization, and cryptocurrency.
The workshop favors works with an experimental flavor such as measurement and prototyping.
Submissions should have six or fewer pages of technical content, including all text, figures, tables, appendices, etc., formatted in standard ACM two-column conference style with 10-pt font size. Bibliographic references are not included in the 6-page limit. Reviewing will be double-blind: no author or affiliation information should appear in the submission. The authors should additionally follow the best practice in order not to disclose their identities implicitly. A submission may present preliminary results, propose a new research direction, provide insightful retrospectives, or offer a provocative viewpoint on an important systems topic.
Papers will be selected based on their likelihood of generating insightful technical discussions at the workshop and influencing future systems research. Relevant attributes include originality, technical merit, clarity, and technical relevance. Accepted papers will appear in the proceedings of the workshop, which will be published in the ACM Digital Library. Consistent with standard scholarly practice, the authors should not have substantially similar work in review anywhere else.
Submissions can be made online at the APSys 2021 submission site (The submission portal will be opened in late April).
