Contact Email:swanson@cs.ucsd.edu
Synopsis:
The 8th Annual Non-Volatile Memories Workshop (NVMW 2017) provides a unique showcase for outstanding research on solid state, non-volatile memories. It features a "vertically integrated" program that includes presentations on devices, data encoding, systems architecture, and applications related to these exciting new data storage technologies. Workshop submissions should be in the form of a 2-page presentation abstract. Submissions will be evaluated on the basis of impact, novelty, and general interest.

IFIP SEC 2017

Title:32nd IFIP TC-11 International Information Security and Privacy Conference
Submission Deadline:2016-12-23
Webpage:http://ifipsec.org/2017/
Dates:May, 29-31, 2017
Location:Rome, Italy
Contact Email:giovanni.livraga@unimi.it
Synopsis:
The IFIP SEC conference is the flagship event of the International Federation for Information Processing (IFIP) Technical Committee 11 on Security and Privacy Protection in Information Processing Systems (TC-11, www.ifiptc11.org). Previous SEC conferences were held in Ghent (Belgium) 2016, Hamburg (Germany) 2015, Marrakech (Morroco) 2014, Auckland (New Zealand) 2013, Heraklion (Greece) 2012, Lucerne (Switzerland) 2011, and Brisbane (Australia) 2010. We seek submissions from academia, industry, and government presenting novel research on all theoretical and practical aspects of security and privacy protection in ICT Systems.

NEW THIS MONTH!

LTB 2017

Title:6th International Workshop on Load Testing and Benchmarking of Software Systems
Submission Deadline:2017-01-10
Webpage:http://ltb2017.eecs.yorku.ca/
Dates:April 23, 2017
Location:L'Aquila, Italy
Contact Email:kross@fortiss.org
Synopsis:
Load testing and benchmarking software systems are difficult tasks, which requires a great understanding of the system under test and customer behavior. Practitioners face many challenges such as tooling (choosing and implementing the testing tools), environments (software and hardware setup) and time (limited time to design, test, and analyze). This one-day workshop brings together software testing researchers, practitioners and tool developers to discuss the challenges and opportunities of conducting research on load testing and benchmarking software systems.

BeyondMR 2017

Title:Workshop for Algorithms and Systems for MapReduce and Beyond
Submission Deadline:2017-01-27
Webpage:https://sites.google.com/site/beyondmr2017/home
Dates:May, 19-19, 2017
Location:Raleigh, NC, USA
Contact Email:jan.hidders@vub.ac.be
Synopsis:
Algorithms and Systems for MapReduce and Beyond (BeyondMR) is a workshop for research at the frontier of large-scale computations, with topics ranging from algorithms, to computational models, to the systems themselves. The workshop aims to explore algorithms, computational models, architectures, languages and interfaces for systems that need large-scale parallelization and systems designed to support efficient parallelization and fault tolerance. These include specialized programming and data-management systems based on MapReduce and extensions, graph processing systems, data-intensive workflow and dataflow systems.

NEW THIS MONTH!

ECRTS 17

Title:29th Euromicro Conference on Real-Time Systems
Submission Deadline:2017-01-31
Webpage:ecrts17.ecrts.org
Dates:June 27-30, 2017
Location:Dubrovnik, Croatia
Contact Email:fohler@eit.uni-kl.de
Synopsis:
ECRTS is the premier European venue for presenting research into the broad area of real-time and embedded systems. ECRTS has been in the forefront of the real-time community in introducing innovations such as artefact evaluation; open-access proceedings, etc., into the larger real-time computing community. ECRTS 17 will apply an open access publication model in collaboration with LIPIcs – Leibniz International Proceedings in Informatics established in cooperation with Schloss Dagstuhl –Leibniz Center for Informatics.

2. ABOUT SIGOPS-ANNOUNCE

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.
