The prime focus of Networks 2016 is on new challenges in network design, planning, management and operations. These challenges are induced by several recent technological developments such as: Software Defined Networking (SDN), Cloud Networking, Big Data Networking, omnipresent virtualization of resources leading to Virtual Networks Operations (VNO), as well as the increased diversity of overlaid large-scale infrastructures (Smart Cities, Smart Grid, Internet of Things). Some of these issues will be also addressed by keynote speakers from Ciena, Ericsson, GENI (Global Environment for Network Innovations), SAVI (NSERC Strategic Network for Smart Applications on Virtual Infrastructures) and Accenture (Communication, Media and Technology operating unit)

SysTEX '16

Title:1st Workshop on System Software for Trusted Execution
Abstract Deadline:2016-08-19
Submission Deadline:2016-08-26
Dates:December 12-16, 2016
Location:Trento, Italy
With the advent of novel hardware extensions that enable fine-grained and flexible trusted execution, appropriate system software needs to be provided to make these features conveniently accessible to application developers. The 1st Workshop on System Software for Trusted Execution will focus on system software and middleware that puts novel hardware for trusted execution (e.g. Intel SGX) in use and highlights how possible additional hardware features will enable the implementation of trustworthy systems.


CAN 2016

Title:Cloud Assisted Networking Workshop, Co-located with CoNEXT 2016
Submission Deadline:2016-08-21
Dates:December 12, 2016
Location:Irvine, CA, USA
Virtualization of network functions and software-defined networking have been revolutionizing both the network control and data planes. As cloud platforms are becoming closer and more ubiquitously available, offloading network functionality to cloud platforms becomes feasible. This increased flexibility encourages us to reconsider how network functions should be implemented and where they should reside. This workshop aims to bring together researchers working to integrate cloud resources and network components to solve complex problems including: - Caching with cloud platforms - Cloud-assisted filtering, routing, load balancing and security - Economics of cloud-assisted networking - Edge clouds and fog computing - Energy-efficient networking using clouds - Network resilience using clouds - Inter- and Intra-domain optimizations using clouds - Mobile data management with cloud support - Multi-cloud designs for NFV and SDN - Network measurement using clouds - Service chaining using clouds


IC2E 2017

Title:5th IEEE International Conference on Cloud Engineering
Abstract Deadline:2016-08-29
Submission Deadline:2016-09-05
Dates:April, 4-7, 2017
Location:Vancouver, Canada
The 5th IEEE International Conference on Cloud Engineering (IC2E) seeks to provide a high-quality and comprehensive forum, where researchers and practitioners can exchange information on engineering principles, enabling technologies, and practical experiences related to cloud computing. By bringing together experts that work on different levels of the cloud stack - systems, storage, networking, platforms, databases, and applications, IC2E offers an end-to-end view on the challenges and technologies in cloud computing, fosters research that addresses the interaction between different layers of the stack, and ultimately helps shape the future of cloud-transformed business and society. We seek high-quality submissions for both a research track and an industrial track, as described in the call for papers below.

DAT'16 is being organized to bring together researchers and industry practitioners who are interested in increasing understanding and transparency of large-scale data collection, and the systems and algorithms that it powers. We aim to attract attendees from a variety of areas, including networked systems, privacy, security, economics, and HCI. We particularly encourage papers that propose new research directions, have practical impact, or could generate lively debate at the workshop. Accepted papers will be made available on the workshop website; however, the workshop's proceedings can be considered non-archival, meaning contributors are free to publish their work in archival journals or conferences.

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.
