2020 Conference


MSST 2020, as is our tradition, will focus on distributed storage system technologies, including persistent memory, new memory technologies, long-term data retention (tape, optical disks...), solid state storage (flash, MRAM, RRAM...), software-defined storage, OS- and file-system technologies, cloud storage, big data, and data centers (private and public). The conference focused on current challenges and future trends in storage technologies.

MSST 2020 will include a day of tutorials, two days of invited papers, and two days of peer-reviewed research papers. The conference will be held, once again, on the beautiful campus of Santa Clara University, in the heart of Silicon Valley.
