Non-Volatile memory (NVM) technologies have demonstrated great potentials on improving many aspects of present and future memory hierarchy, offering high integration density, larger capacity, zero standby power and good resilience to soft errors. The recent research progress of various NVMs, e.g., NAND flash, PCM, STT-RAM, RRAM, FeRAM, etc., have drawn tremendous attentions from both academy and industry. The unique characteristics of these NVM technologies, such as read-write asymmetry, stochastic programming behavior, access through memory rather than I/O instructions, performance-power-nonvolatility tradeoff, etc., introduce many opportunities and challenges for novel system and storage design optimizations. 

We are soliciting papers for the ACM TOS Special Issue on NVM and Storage that includes but is not limited to the following topics:

  • NVM Controller Design
  • Processor support for NVM
  • Operating system support for NVM
  • Compiler and programming language design for NVM
  • NVM-based storage
  • NVM-based databases
  • Key-value and NoSQL NVM storage
  • NVM File system design
  • NVM extensions to file systems
  • Reliability, availability, and disaster tolerance
