Title:18th European Symposium on Research in Computer Security
Submission Deadline:2013-04-10
Dates:September, 9-11, 2013
Location:London, United Kingdom
ESORICS (European Symposium on Research in Computer Security) is the premier European research conference in computer security. ESORICS started in 1990 and has been held in several European countries, attracting an international audience from both the academic and industrial communities. ESORICS 2013, the 18th symposium in the series, will be held in the UK at Royal Holloway, University of London.

APSys 2013

Title:4th ACM SIGOPS Asia-Pacific Workshop on Systems
Submission Deadline:2013-04-22
Dates:July, 29-30, 2013
APSys 2013 will 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. We take a broad view of computer systems, and solicit papers on topics in operating systems, virtualization, file and storage systems, mobile, pervasive, and other distributed systems, as well as generic measurement, monitoring, and modeling works concerning system reliability, scalability, security, energy efficiency, and so on. Submissions should be six or fewer pages in length, formatted in standard ACM two-column conference style with 11-pt font size.


DSLDI 2013

Title:Workshop on Domain Specific Languages Design and Implementation
Submission Deadline:2013-04-26
Dates:July, 1st, 2013
Location:Montpellier, France
The goal of the DSLDI workshop is to bring together researchers and practitioners interested in sharing ideas on how Domain Specific Languages should be designed and implemented and on usage scenarios for modern DSLs. We are also interested in building a community that can drive forward development of modern DSLs. The workshop will consist of a series of short invited talks whose main goal would be to trigger exchange of opinion and discussions on the DSL-related topics. For details, including the presentation submission procedure, please consult DSLDI's web site at or contact Adam Welc at


AER 2013

Title:International Workshop on Algorithmic and Application Error Resilience (AER'13)
Submission Deadline:2013-05-01
Dates:June 11th, 2013
Location:Eugene, Oregon, USA
Circuit and logic variability from process scaling is leading to significant reliability problems in future systems. The increasingly stringent power constraints on system designs are making prior hardware and software-based fault tolerance approaches impractical due to their heavy reliance on redundant, worst-case, and conservative designs. Instead, algorithm-based approaches provide applications the flexibility to adapt to inherent application error tolerances and leverage the patterns of higher level abstractions. The AER workshop focuses on techniques, approaches, and principles for algorithmic and application error resilience.



Title:14th ACM/IFIP/USENIX International Middleware Conference
Abstract Deadline:2013-05-24
Submission Deadline:2013-05-31
Dates:9-13 December 2013
Location:Beijing, China
Following the success of past conferences in this series, the 14th International Middleware Conference will be the premier event for middleware research, technology and experimentation in 2013. The scope of the conference is the design, implementation, deployment, and evaluation of system platforms and architectures for current and future computing, storage, and communication environments. Highlights of the conference will include a high quality technical program, invited speakers, an industrial track, panel discussions involving academic and industry leaders, poster and demonstration presentations, a doctoral symposium, and workshops.

Title:9th International Symposium on Algorithms and Experiments for Sensor Systems, Wireless Networks and Distributed Robotics
Submission Deadline:2013-06-26
Dates:09, 05-06, 2013
Location:Sophia Antipolis, France
ALGOSENSORS is an international Symposium dedicated to the algorithmic aspects of wireless networks, static or mobile. Originally focused solely on sensor networks, it now covers more broadly algorithmic issues arising in all wireless networks of computational entities, including sensor networks, sensor-actuator networks, and systems of autonomous mobile robots. In particular, it focuses on the design and analysis of discrete and distributed algorithms, on models of computation and complexity, on experimental analysis, in the context of wireless networks, sensor networks, and robotic networks. The goal is to reinforce the foundational and algorithmic aspects of the research in these areas.


SoCC 2013

Title:ACM Symposium on Cloud Computing 2013
Submission Deadline:2013-07-02
Dates:October, 1-3, 2013
Location:San Jose, CA, USA
The ACM Symposium on Cloud Computing 2013 will be the fourth in a new series of symposia that brings together researchers, developers, users, and practitioners interested in cloud computing. ACM SoCC is the premier conference on cloud computing; it is the only conference co-sponsored by the ACM SIGMOD and SIGOPS. The scope of SoCC is broad and encompasses diverse systems topics such as software as a service, virtualization, and scalable cloud data services. It is focusing on a wide spectrum of topics in the areas of systems and data management that must be revisited in the context of cloud computing.

PLOS 2013

Title:7th Workshop on Programming Languages and Operating Systems
Submission Deadline:2013-07-05
Dates:November, 3, 2013
Location:Co-located with SOSP -- Nemacolin Woodlands Resort, Pennsylvania
This workshop will bring together researchers and developers from the programming language and operating system domains to discuss recent work at the intersection of these fields. It will be a platform for discussing new visions, challenges, experiences, problems, and solutions arising from the application of advanced programming and software engineering concepts to operating systems construction, and vice versa.


The SIGOPS-ANNOUNCE mailing list is intended to provide a low-volume channel that provides operating systems researchers and practitioners with information about upcoming events or other important announcements. In general, a message containing a group of such announcements will be sent about once per month with the subject line "SIGOPS-ANNOUNCE monthly posting". On rare occasions, announcements of particular interest or urgency will be sent out with a different subject line, starting with "SIGOPS-ANNOUNCE supplemental posting" (for readers who wish to use mail filtering programs.) Finally, this mailing list is made available for use by publicity chairs of SIGOPS-sponsored conferences and the SIGOPS officers.
