IEEE NAS 2019 (August 15 – 17, 2019, Enshi, China)


The 14th International Conference on Networking, Architecture, and Storage (NAS 2019) will be held from August 15 ? 17, 2019 at Enshi, China. NAS 2019 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 2019 will expose participants to the most recent developments in the interdisciplinary areas. Authors are invited to submit previously unpublished work for possible presentation at the conference.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 to the special issue of Concurrency and Computation: Practice and Experience (SCI indexed).
