ANNOUNCEMENTS

MobiSys 2009

Title:7th International Conference on Mobile Systems, Applications, and Services (MobiSys)
Abstract Deadline:2008-11-26
Submission Deadline:2008-12-03
Webpage:http://www.sigmobile.org/mobisys/2009/
Dates:22-25 June, 2009
Location:Krakow, Poland
Contact Email:romit@ee.duke.edu
Synopsis:
Overview MobiSys 2009 seeks to present innovative and significant research on the design, implementation, usage, and evaluation of mobile computing and wireless systems, applications, and services. This conference, jointly sponsored by ACM SIGMOBILE and USENIX, builds on the success of the previous six conferences. Submission Guidelines MobiSys 2009 seeks papers that take a broad systems perspective rather than focus narrowly on low-level components. The conference values results and insights obtained from working implementations more highly than those obtained solely from simulations. If you have any questions regarding relevance or other submission-related issues, please contact the program chairs at mobisys_pcchairs@acm.org.

WASL 2008 (Call for Participation)

Title:Call for Participation - Workshop on the Analysis of System Logs
Submission Deadline:2008-12-07
Webpage:http://www.systemloganalysis.com
Dates:December 7th, 2008
Location:San Diego, CA, USA
Contact Email:bronevetsky@llnl.gov
Synopsis:
System logs are a rich information source for analyzing and diagnosing system problems and predicting future events. However, most of this information is wasted due to their lack of organization or cross-vendor semantic consistency. This workshop focuses on novel techniques for extracting operationally useful information from existing logs and methods to improve the information content of future logs. Topics: Reports on publicly available log sources Log anonymization Log feature detection and extraction Prediction of malfunction or misuse Statistical log characterization Log compression/comparison Methods to enhance and standardize log semantics Diagnostic techniques Log visualization Analysis of services (problem ticket) logs
