Call For Papers

The 2022 USENIX Annual Technical Conference seeks original, high-quality submissions that improve and further the knowledge of computing systems, with an emphasis on implementations and experimental results. We are interested in systems of all scales, from small embedded mobile devices to data centers and clouds. The scope of USENIX ATC covers all practical aspects related to computer systems, including but not limited to: operating systems; runtime systems; parallel and distributed systems; storage; networking; security and privacy; virtualization; software-hardware interactions; performance evaluation and workload characterization; reliability, availability, and scalability; energy and power management; and bug-finding, tracing, analyzing, and troubleshooting.

We value submissions more highly if they are accompanied by clearly defined artifacts not previously available, including traces, original data, source code, or tools developed as part of the submitted work. We particularly encourage new ideas and approaches.

Submissions must contain original unpublished material that is not under review at any other forum, including journals, conferences, and workshops with proceedings. They will be judged on relevance, novelty, technical merit, correctness, and clarity. An idea or a design that the PC committee deems flawed can be grounds for rejection.

USENIX ATC '22 will employ double-blind reviewing. Papers that are not properly anonymized may be rejected without review.

Papers need to be registered and their abstracts submitted by the abstract registration deadline. Papers with an empty abstract will be rejected.

Submission Type: Full vs. Short

USENIX ATC accepts both full and short submissions. Short submissions are limited to roughly half the space of full-length submissions. Both types are reviewed to the same standards and differ primarily in scope. A short paper presents a complete idea that is properly evaluated, just like in a full-length submission.

Operational Systems Track

USENIX ATC '22 solicits papers that describe the design, implementation, analysis, and experience with large-scale, operational systems and networks. Such operational papers need not present new ideas or results to be accepted. Note that the rules regarding submission and anonymization are different for operational systems track papers (see the submission instructions for more details). The final program will explicitly identify papers accepted from the operational track to distinguish papers accepted from the regular track.

Early Rejection Notifications

USENIX ATC '22 will conduct its reviews in multiple rounds. As some papers may be rejected in an early round, USENIX ATC '22 will send early rejection notifications to such authors at least a month ahead of the date that all remaining notifications are sent (acceptances and additional rejections).

Authors' Response Period

USENIX ATC '22 will provide an opportunity for authors to respond to reviews prior to final consideration of the submissions at the program committee meeting according to the schedule detailed above.


All submissions will be treated as confidential prior to publication on the USENIX ATC '22 website. Rejected submissions will be permanently treated as confidential.
