SOSP'05 Work-in-Progress Session
As in previous years, SOSP 20 will include a "Work in Progress"
session. This session is intended to highlight the very latest,
not-quite-ready-for-prime-time, research - including new approaches,
new results, partial experiences, etc.
Presentations will be selected in advance, based on an extended 1-page
abstract describing the main points to be covered in the presentation.
The WIP review committee will evaluate submissions according to the
- Contains new, interesting work, not previously presented.
- Represents early work that is not yet ready for submission to a
refereed conference or journal.
- Student submissions meeting the above criteria will be explicitly
favoured; however, submissions are not limited to just students.
Deadline for WIP submissions (extended abstract): September 22, 2005
Notification of decisions: October 8, 2005
Information on how to submit a WIP can be found by following the link

STUDENT SCHOLARSHIPS for SOSP '05
The ACM Symposium on Operating Systems, to be held on October 23-26
in Brighton, UK, will be offering a limited number of scholarships to
enable students to attend the conference.
Each scholarship covers the SOSP conference registration, including
meals and proceedings, and a shared hotel room during the
conference. Additional funding may be awarded toward the cost of
travel. Scholarships will be awarded by the scholarship committee
based on a combination of need and merit. Students receiving
scholarships must agree to serve as a session scribe (if required)
during the conference. Applicants are encouraged to participate in the
poster session and work-in-progress presentations.
Funding is available to all students at educational institutions,
world-wide. Members of groups historically under-represented at SOSP
are especially encouraged to apply. Although most applicants in past
years have been graduate students, undergraduates who are actively
involved in systems research projects are welcome to apply.
Applications are due on August 30, 2005. Information on how to apply
can be found by following the link off of the SOSP web page, available
at the following URL:
Please forward this announcement to any student interested in
attending the conference.

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.
