NEW THIS MONTH!
|Title:||Fourth French Conference on Operating Systems|
|Dates:||April 6-8, 2005|
|Location:||Le Croisic, presqu'île de Guérande, France|
|The French Chapter of the ACM Special Interest Group on Operating Systems (SIGOPS) is organizing every 18 months a conference on Operating Systems. It will bring together french and european researchers from universities and industry. Operating systems have to meet some constraints, among others: portability on multiple hardware platforms, performance, security. Additional constraints like real-time/quality of service, low energy consumption, arising in most embedded systems, also have to be dealt with. We encourage submissions on all these areas.|
|Title:||Fifth International Workshop on Software and Performance (WOSP 2005)|
|Dates:||July, 11-15, 2005|
|Location:||Palma, Illes Balears, Spain|
|WOSP is a forum for researchers interested in the intersection of Software Engineering and Performance Evaluation. Software Performance Engineering (SPE) research aims to build predictable performance into software by specifying and analysing quantitative behaviour from the early development phases of a system throughout its entire life cycle. This workshop brings together software engineers, developers, performance analysts and modellers who address the challenges of increasing system complexity, rapidly evolving software technologies, short time to market, incomplete documentation, and less than adequate quantitative models and tools. We expect a strong mixture of academic and industrial participation.|

|Title:||ACM SIGCOMM 2005|
|Dates:||August 20-26, 2005|
|Location:||Philadelphia, PA, USA|
|The SIGCOMM 2005 Conference seeks papers describing significant research contributions to the field of computer and data communication networks. SIGCOMM is a selective conference where papers discuss novel results, designs, or architectural paradigms typically substantiated by implementation, experimentation, analysis or simulation. As in previous years, SIGCOMM 2005 will have a poster session and a student travel grant program. SIGCOMM 2005 will also feature tutorials and workshops for which it is soliciting proposals. Details will be posted on the conference web site as they become available.|

|Title:||EURO-PAR 2005 TOPIC 8 - Distributed Systems and Algorithms|
|Dates:||August 30 - September 2, 2005|
|Location:||Universidade Nova de Lisboa, Portugal|
|Euro-Par is an annual series of international conferences dedicated to the promotion and advancement of all aspects of parallel and distributed computing. Parallel computing is increasingly exposed to the challenges of distributed systems, such as asynchrony, long latencies, network partition, failures, disconnected operation, and protocol standardization. Witness the growth of peer-to-peer computing, the Grid and Web services. This Euro-Par topic provides a forum for research and practice, of interest to both academia and industry, about distributed computing and distributed algorithms. We encourage submission of papers across the whole area.|
NEW THIS MONTH!
|Title:||Tenth Workshop on Hot Topics in Operating Systems (HotOS X)|
|Dates:||June 12–15, 2005|
|Location:||Santa Fe, NM, USA|
|The Tenth Workshop on Hot Topics in Operating Systems will bring together people conducting innovative work in the systems area for three days of interaction, with all attendees being active participants and contributors throughout the workshop. We request submissions of position papers that propose new directions of research, advocate non-traditional approaches to old (or new) ideas, or generate controversy and discussion. HotOS takes a broad view of what the systems area encompasses and seeks contributions from all fields of systems practice. We particularly encourage contributions containing highly original ideas.|
NEW THIS MONTH!
|Title:||Twenty-Fourth Annual ACM SIGACT-SIGOPS Symposium on Principles of Distributed Computing (PODC 2005)|
|Dates:||July 17-20, 2005|
|Location:||Las Vegas, Nevada, USA|
|PODC continues to broaden the conference, and solicits papers on all areas of distributed systems. We encourage submissions dealing with any aspect of distributed computing, including theory and practice, systems, design, specification, verification, implementation, application, and properties of distributed systems. The common goal is to shed light on the principles of distributed computing.|
|Title:||20th ACM Symposium on Operating Systems Principles (SOSP'05)|
|Dates:||October 23-26, 2005|
|Location:||The Grand Hotel, Brighton, United Kingdom|
|Authors are invited to submit papers to the 20th SOSP reporting on original research related to the design, implementation, analysis, evaluation, and deployment of operating systems. We seek submissions of high quality that significantly further the knowledge and understanding of the systems community. In keeping with SOSP tradition, we will favor work that explores new territory, continues a significant research dialog, or reflects on experience with practical applications of the community's knowledge. Papers of particular merit will be forwarded to ACM Transactions on Computer Systems for possible publication in a special issue.|
NEW THIS MONTH!
|Title:||FGCS, Intl. Journal of Grid Computing, Special Issue on Fault Tolerance and Failure Recovery|
|Dates:||April 1, 2005|
|In order to develop a service-oriented, reliable platform, Grid research needs to tackle the problem of failure detection and recovery which affects the applications running on the Grid as well as any component of the Grid management. Even the underlying resource infrastructure of the Grid may change dynamically during the run-time of an application. Even if the other resources work correctly, network outages may occur and obstruct the execution of a distributed application. In this special issue, we encourage the submission of papers dealing with any aspect of failure detection, propagation, recovery, and fault tolerance strategies for the Grid.|
|Title:||Operating Systems Review Online Submission|
Submissions to Operating Systems Review (OSR) are now electronic as PDF attachments to electronic mail. Submit to the editor William M. Waite at "William.Waite@colorado.edu". The format should be single spaced, without a separate title page. Text and diagrams must be contained within a 6.5 inch wide by 8.5 inch high (165mm by 216mm) area with at least one inch (25mm) top and side margins, and 1.5 inch (38mm) bottom margin. Except for editorial items, all sources of material appearing in Operating Systems Review will be clearly identified. Items attributed to individuals will ordinarily be interpreted as personal rather than organizational opinions. The technical material in this newsletter is not refereed. Deadlines for submitting material are the 15th of February, May, August, and November.
ABOUT SIGOPS-ANNOUNCEThe 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.
