Webpage:http://www.ece.cmu.edu/CALCM/asplos10
Dates:March 2010
Location:Pittsburgh, PA, USA
Contact Email:franzf@ece.cmu.edu
Synopsis:
ASPLOS is a forum for multidisciplinary research that spans the boundaries of hardware, computer architecture, compilers, languages, operating systems, networking, and applications. The ASPLOS conference series has captured some of the major computer systems innovations of the past two decades (e.g., RISC and VLIW processors, small and large-scale multiprocessors, clusters, optimizing compilers, network-storage systems, and system-level and language-level virtualization).

WESS'2009

Title:4-th Workshop on Embedded Systems Security (WESS'2009)
Abstract Deadline:2009-08-03
Submission Deadline:2009-08-10
Webpage:http://www.wess-workshop.org
Dates:October, 15, 2009
Location:Grenoble, France
Contact Email:general-chair@wess-workshop.org
Synopsis:
Embedded systems are widely adopted in application areas, from safety-critical systems to vital information management. Their inherent characteristics and the advent of Internet-enabled devices introduce a large number of security issues, e.g. remote intrusion, power/timing attacks, hijacking, etc., which differ from traditional workstation security issues due to their physical properties, performance limitations, etc. WESS provides a research forum for novel ideas on such topics as: * Security planning and provisioning for embedded systems. * Security of Internet-enabled embedded systems. * Side-channel attacks and countermeasures. * Security of sensor networks both wired and wireless. * Security engineering.

HotSWUp'09

Title:Second ACM Workshop on Software Upgrades
Submission Deadline:2009-09-04
Webpage:http://www.hotswup.org
Dates:10/25/2009
Location:Orlando, Florida
Contact Email:tdumitra@ece.cmu.edu
Synopsis:
Software must be upgraded regularly to incorporate bug fixes and security patches or to keep up with the evolving requirements. Recent studies and a large body of anecdotal evidence suggest that, in practice, upgrades are expensive and failure-prone. HotSWUp is an interdisciplinary workshop, based on synergies among the areas of programming languages, software engineering and systems. By seeking contributions from both academic researchers and industry practitioners, HotSWUp aims to combine novel ideas with experience from upgrading real systems. The workshop builds on the success of HotSWUp'08, where the paper presentations and lively discussions attracted a diverse audience of researchers.

Synopsis:
Herbert Bos and Guillaume Pierre (Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam) are organizing a shadow program committee for the Eurosys 2010 conference. The shadow PC is an educational experience. Participants will write real reviews of the real submissions to EuroSys 2010 in real time. At the PC meeting, following the normal discussions to choose a program, the shadow PC will hold a meta-discussion about the process with access to both their own reviews and those of the real PC (blind). This discussion covers how to write a systems paper, how to review one, and the dynamics of choosing a conference program.

CCA09 -- Call for Participation

Title:Cloud Computing and Applications
Submission Deadline:2009-10-20
Webpage:http://www.cca09.org
Dates:October 20-21, 2009
Location:Chicago IL
Contact Email:info@cca09.org
Synopsis:
Dramatic growth in data and equally rapid decline in the cost of highly integrated clusters has spurred the emergence of the data center as the platform of choice for a growing class of data-intensive applications. To encourage conversations between those developing applications, algorithms, software, and hardware for such "cloud" platforms, we are convening the second workshop on Cloud Computing and its Applications (CCA'09). This workshop will include a mixture of invited and contributed talks on cloud computing, data intensive scalable computing, and related topics.
