Call For Papers

The International Conference on Networking, Architecture, and Storage provides a high-quality 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 2021 will expose participants to the most recent developments in the interdisciplinary areas.

Each submission can be either a regular paper(up to 8 pages) or a short paper(up to 4 pages), including all text, figures, tables, footnotes, appendices, references, etc. Authors are invited to submit previously unpublished work for possible presentation at the conference. The program committee will nominate best papers for recognition in the three conference topic areas. All papers will be evaluated based on their novelty, fundamental insight, experimental evaluation, and potential for long-term impact; new-idea papers are encouraged. All accepted papers will be published in IEEE digital library. Selected and extended papers will be recommended for Concurrency and Computation: Practice and Experience journal special issue for NAS2021. This journal impact factor is 1.447.
