ANNOUNCEMENTS

NEW THIS MONTH!

CFSE4

Title:Fourth French Conference on Operating Systems
Submission Deadline:2004-12-07
Webpage:http://www.emn.fr/x-info/renpar2005/cfse4-Eng.html
Dates:April 6-8, 2005
Location:Le Croisic, presqu'île de Guérande, France
Contact Email:Isabelle.Puaut@irisa.fr
Synopsis:
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.

WOSP 2005

Title:Fifth International Workshop on Software and Performance (WOSP 2005)
Submission Deadline:2004-12-13
Webpage:http://wosp2005.uib.es/
Dates:July, 11-15, 2005
Location:Palma, Illes Balears, Spain
Contact Email:wosp2005@uib.es
Synopsis:
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.

NEW THIS MONTH!

SIGCOMM 2005

Title:ACM SIGCOMM 2005
Abstract Deadline:2005-01-30
Submission Deadline:2005-02-06
Webpage:http://www.acm.org/sigs/sigcomm/sigcomm2005/
Dates:August 20-26, 2005
Location:Philadelphia, PA, USA
Contact Email:ramesh@usc.edu
Synopsis:
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.

NEW THIS MONTH!

EURO-PAR 2005

Title:EURO-PAR 2005 TOPIC 8 - Distributed Systems and Algorithms
Submission Deadline:2005-01-31
Webpage:http://europar05.di.fct.unl.pt
Dates:August 30 - September 2, 2005
Location:Universidade Nova de Lisboa, Portugal
Contact Email:europar05@di.fct.unl.pt
Synopsis:
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!

HotOS X

Title:Tenth Workshop on Hot Topics in Operating Systems (HotOS X)
Submission Deadline:2005-02-01
Webpage:http://www.usenix.org/events/hotos05
Dates:June 12–15, 2005
Location:Santa Fe, NM, USA
Contact Email:margo@eecs.harvard.edu
Synopsis:
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!

PODC 2005

Title:Twenty-Fourth Annual ACM SIGACT-SIGOPS Symposium on Principles of Distributed Computing (PODC 2005)
Submission Deadline:2005-02-07
Webpage:http://www.podc.org/podc2005/
Dates:July 17-20, 2005
Location:Las Vegas, Nevada, USA
Contact Email:aspnes@cs.yale.edu
Synopsis:
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.

SOSP 2005

Title:20th ACM Symposium on Operating Systems Principles (SOSP'05)
Submission Deadline:2005-03-25
Webpage:http://www.sosp-20.com
Dates:October 23-26, 2005
Location:The Grand Hotel, Brighton, United Kingdom
Contact Email:program@sosp-20.com
Synopsis:
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!

FGCS

Title:FGCS, Intl. Journal of Grid Computing, Special Issue on Fault Tolerance and Failure Recovery
Submission Deadline:2005-04-01
Webpage:http://kbs.cs.tu-berlin.de/staff/lars/fgcs/cfp.htm
Dates:April 1, 2005
Location:
Contact Email:baron@cs.tu-berlin.de
Synopsis:
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.
