Nonvolatile memory (NVM) technologies have demonstrated great potentials on improving many aspects of present-day 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. Besides developing robust and scalable devices, the unique characteristics of these NVM technologies, such as read-write asymmetry, stochastic programming behavior, performance-power-nonvolatility tradeoff etc., introduce plenty of opportunities and challenges for novel circuit designs, architectures, system organizations, and management strategies. There is an urgent need of technology invention, modeling, analysis, design and application of these NVMs ranging from circuit design level to system level.
IEEE Non-Volatile Memory Systems and Applications Symposium (NVMSA) provides a fantastic opportunity for global nonvolatile memory researchers from different communities to discuss and exchange knowledge, ideas, and insights, and to facilitate the establishment of potential collaborations that can speed up the progress in the design and application of NVMs. An expanded technical program will be offered in NVMSA 2014 for the audience from academy and industry. The organizing committee is soliciting various topics on related to NVMs, including (but not limited to):
- Circuit design of NVMs
- Characterization of commercial or experimental memory devices
- Error correction and data encoding schemes for non-volatile memories
- Security and reliability of non-volatile memory and SSD storage systems
- Novel memory architecture and design
- NVM Cache Designs for Servers
- Energy efficient architecture and management for NVM and SSD
- Operating System and software support for memory management
- Signal processing and coding schemes in NVM systems
- Hardware-Software co-design for novel memory architectures
- New applications of NVMs and SSD.
The topics of NVMSA cover the research and development advances in both mainstream and emerging NVMs. The event is designed to foster interaction and presentation of early results, new ideas and speculative directions. Thus, NVMSA will combine the presentations of the papers accepted from the regular submissions as well as a number of invited talks from researchers in academia, technologists from industry, and case studies on the use of NVMs. Participating authors are invited to submit six-page manuscripts to the conference and all accepted papers will be published in the conference proceeding. The conference organizers are working on including the conference proceeding in IEEE digital library and arrange the extensions of some selected works to be published in special issue(s) of ACM transactions and journals.
