NEW THIS MONTH! Sensornets 2016

Title:5th International Conference on Sensor Networks
Full Papers Deadline:2015-10-14 (expired)
Proposals for Tutorials, Demos, and Panels Deadline:2015-12-30
Doctoral Consortium Paper Deadline:2015-12-03
Open Communications Paper Deadline:2015-12-07
Dates:Fabruary, 19-21, 2016
Location:Rome, Italy

Current developments show that in the near future the wide availability of low cost, short range radio technology, along with advances in wireless networking, will enable wireless adhoc sensor networks to become commonly deployed. In these networks, each node may be equipped with a variety of sensors, such as acoustic, seismic, infrared, motion, biomedical and chemical sensors with higher level of information inference associated with identification, embedded signal processing and networking of the data. This conference intends to be the meeting point of researchers and practitioners to share experiences and ideas on innovative developments in any aspect of sensor networks, including Hardware of Sensor Networks, Wireless Communication Protocols, Sensor Networks Software and Architectures, Wireless Information Networks, Data Manipulation, Signal Processing, Localization and Object Tracking through Sensor Networks, Obstacles, Applications and Uses.

Papers describing original work are invited in any of the areas listed below. Accepted papers, presented at the conference by one of the authors, will be published in the proceedings of SENSORNETS. Acceptance will be based on quality, relevance and originality. There will be both oral and poster sessions.

Special sessions, dedicated to case-studies and commercial presentations, as well as technical tutorials, dedicated to technical/scientific topics, are also envisaged: companies interested in presenting their products/methodologies or researchers interested in presenting a demo or lecturing a tutorial are invited to contact the conference secretariat.

DisCoTec 2016

Title:11th International Federated Conferences on Distributed Computing Techniques
Abstract Deadline:2016-02-01
Submission Deadline:2016-02-08
Dates:June, 6-9, 2016
Location:Heraklion, Crete, Greece
The DisCoTec series of federated conferences is one of the major events sponsored by the International Federation for Information processing (IFIP). The main conferences are COORDINATION, DAIS and FORTE. The conferences focus on all aspects of distributed and concurrent systems, including theory, models, tools, applications and software techonologies for such systems. All conferences share the same deadlines. This year IFIP offers an award for the best paper of DisCoTec.



Title:3rd Workshop on CrossCloud Infrastructures & Platforms
Submission Deadline:2016-02-08
Dates:April 18-21, 2016
Location:London, UK
CrossCloud is an international workshop series that aims to bring to light several issues related to cross-cloud systems: cloud federation, multi-cloud architectures, cross-cloud applications, and hybrid clouds. CrossCloud aims to attract researchers from both academia and industry to share and discuss their recent research and experiences in designing and operating multiple cloud systems. Work in this area extends over various topics including cross-cloud resource management, monitoring, service migration, API interoperability, portability, policy enforcement, benefit–cost analysis, and fault mitigation.


Title:9th ACM International Systems and Storage Conference
Submission Deadline:2016-03-11
Dates:June 6-8, 2016
Location:Haifa, Israel
SYSTOR provides a forum for interaction across the systems and storage community: international, academic, and industrial, for both students and more established members. We solicit high-quality experimental and practical research papers encompassing all aspects of computer systems. Research papers will be published by the ACM. In addition to research papers, SYSTOR hosts distinguished keynote speakers, highlighted papers from recent top conferences, a poster session, and social and cultural activities. SYSTOR 2016 will be held in Haifa from June 6 to 8, 2016.


Networks 2016

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.
