In today's digital world our focus has shifted from computation to storage of information. This workshop aims to provide a one-day forum to bring together systems architecture researchers and practitioners to explore new ideas for the design, implementation, analysis and evaluation of modern computer storage and I/O systems. Presentation of new ideas and work in progress is encouraged. The best papers of this workshop will be published in an issue of the ACM Operating Systems Review.

Possible topics for papers include, but are not limited to, the following:
