IIES 2011

Title:Workshop on Isolation and Integration in Embedded Systems
Submission Deadline:2011-08-15
Webpage:http://www.iies-workshop.org
Dates:October 9th, 2011
Location:Taipei, Taiwan
Contact Email:michael.engel@tu-dortmund.de
Synopsis:
Embedded systems developers today are confronted with a large variety of challenges in the design and implementation of a system. Issues such as co-location of different applications, platform integration of different embedded operating environments as well as safety and protection of embedded software systems require novel approaches to embedded systems development as well as the adaptation of technologies from mainframe and desktop computing, like virtualization and emulation. This, in turn, will change traditional embedded design processes to include hardware and software of growing complexity.

WANDS

Authors should submit 2-4 page abstracts summarizing their experiences/proposals. Topics Include: - Interactions with operating systems and virtualization - Interaction of speculation and I/O devices or accelerators - Hardware support for transactions - Single-threaded and parallel speculative programming constructs - Unconventional uses of hardware - Thread-level speculation and other forms of implicit parallelism - Theoretical models of speculative execution - Profiling and debugging of speculative systems - Speculation in tightly and loosely coupled systems Submission Deadline: August 22, 2011 WANDS is co-located with PACT 2011

PPCloud 2011

Title:Privacy and Provenance in the Cloud
Submission Deadline:2011-08-30
Webpage:http://ppcloud.org
Dates:December, 5-8, 2011
Location:Melbourne, Australia
Contact Email:Kris.Bubendorfer@ecs.vuw.ac.nz
Synopsis:
Clouds enable customers to reduce startup costs, amortize operating costs and increase the flexibility of services through the on-demand acquisition of infrastructure and services. While the cloud presents a compelling proposition, understanding the privacy risks and developing effective solutions is critical for its success. In tension with the need for privacy, is provenance - that is, the need to know who created or is responsible for a piece of data, through whose hands it has passed, who has modified it (or if). The balance between the conflicting requirements of privacy and provenance is a significant challenge for future cloud research.
