Call For Papers

The 7th IEEE International Conference on Networking, Architecture, and Storage (NAS 2012) will be held from June 28 − 30, 2012 at the Xiamen, China. It will serve as an international forum to bring together researchers and practitioners from academia and industry to discuss cutting-edge research on networking, high-performance computer architecture, and parallel and distributed data storage technologies.

NAS has been successfully held in Dalian in 2011(NAS'11), Macau in 2010(NAS'10), Zhang Jia Jie in 2009 (NAS'09), Chongqing in 2008 (NAS'08), Guilin in 2007 (NAS'07), and Shenyang in 2006 (NAS'06).
