[plaintext version]

The 15th SIGOPS Asia-Pacific Workshop on Systems will be held in Kyoto, Japan on September 4-5, 2024. Building on the success of its predecessors, APSys 2024 will continue to be a lively forum for systems researchers and practitioners across the world to meet, interact, and collaborate with their peers from the Asia/Pacific region. APSys takes a broad view of systems, including but no limited to:

  • Operating systems
  • Virtualization
  • File and storage systems
  • Networked systems
  • Mobile, embedded, and IoT systems
  • Cloud computing and data centers
  • Edge computing
  • Big data systems
  • Distributed systems
  • Green and sustainable computing
  • Debugging, testing, verification
  • Measurement, monitoring, and modeling
  • Reliability, scalability, and fault tolerance
  • Security and privacy
  • Systems for machine learning, machine learning for systems
  • Hardware and software interaction
  • Experience with deployed systems
  • Blockchain and cryptocurrency systems


Submissions should be five or fewer pages in length excluding references, formatted in standard ACM two-column conference style with 10-pt font size. Authors should consult the ACM website for the up to date template. Reviewing will be double-blind: no author or affiliation information should appear in the submission. The authors should additionally follow the best practice in order not to disclose their identities implicitly. A submission may present preliminary results, propose a new research direction, provide insightful retrospective, or offer a provocative viewpoint on an important systems topic. Papers will be selected based on their likelihood of generating insightful technical discussions at the workshop and influencing future systems research. Relevant attributes include originality, technical merit, clarity, and technical relevance. Accepted papers will appear in the proceedings of the workshop, which will be published in the ACM Digital Library. Consistent with standard scholarly practice, the authors should not have substantially similar work in review anywhere else.

Submissions can be made online at
