The 27th ASME Annual Conference on Information Storage & Processing Systems (ISPS)

The 27th ASME Annual Conference on Information Storage and Processing Systems (ISPS 2018) to be held in Santa Clara, California, USA, from August 28-29, 2018. Again for this year, the ISPS2018 is co-located with ASME’s InterPACK 2018 conference.

This event is intended to provide a forum for international researchers from the academia and industries to share their findings, to network, and to foster collaboration opportunities in technical and business areas. It is also intended to attract and groom graduate students in the ISPS technical area and related industries.

The conference focuses on information storage and processing systems, as well as intelligent and precision equipment. The target markets include but not limited to: hard disk drive, optical storage systems, biomedical equipment, intelligent machines, consumer electronics, storage systems, imaging and printing equipment. Researchers are working towards enhancing the functionality of the said systems and equipment, making them more powerful (faster in operation, etc), user-friendly, robust and reliable, and environmentally friendly.

The multinational companies in the US and Japan (e.g., WD, HGST, Seagate, HP, TDK, etc.) are among the main R&D drivers, whereas in Korea and Singapore, there are national laboratories (Center for Information Storage Device at Yonsei University and the Data Storage Institute in Singapore, respectively) working in this area.

The ISPS conference attracts approximately 100 attendees each year with over 80 technical presentations.

ISPS’ 17 is soliciting 3-page papers for each of the technical tracks outlined below. Papers accepted and presented will be published in the official conference proceedings. The conference includes keynote and invited speaker presentations.

We look forward to seeing you to San Francisco, CA in August 2018!
