1. ANNOUNCEMENTS

NEW THIS MONTH!

MaRS 2016

Title:2016 Workshop on Multicore and Rack-scale Systems
Submission Deadline:2016-02-05
Webpage:http://www.cs.utexas.edu/~mars2016/
Dates:April 18, 2016
Location:London, UK, co-located with EuroSys'16
Contact Email:simon@cs.utexas.edu
Synopsis:
Present and future multi-core architectures pose a variety of challenges for system developers: non-cache-coherent memory, heterogeneous processing cores and the exploitation of novel architectural features, such as SoCs, distributed switching fabrics, silicon photonics, and programmable hardware. In the near future, we expect to see "rack-scale computers" with 1,000s of cores and terabytes of memory, connected with bandwidth and latency comparable to today's smaller-scale NUMA servers. MaRS ’16 is a forum for researchers in the hardware, networking, storage, operating systems, language runtime and virtual machine communities to present their experiences with and discuss innovative designs and implementations for these new architectures.

SEC 2016

Title:The First IEEE/ACM Symposium on Edge Computing
Submission Deadline:2016-03-02
Webpage:http://conferences.computer.org/SEC/
Dates:October, 27-28, 2016
Location:Washington DC, USA
Contact Email:sec.chairs@gmail.com
Synopsis:
"Edge computing" is new paradigm in which the resources of a small data center are placed at the edge of the Internet, in close proximity to mobile devices, sensors, end users, and the emerging Internet of Things. Terms such as "cloudlets," "micro data centers," and "fog" have been used in the literature to refer to these small, edge-located data centers. They all represent counterpoints to the theme of consolidation and massive data centers that has dominated discourse in cloud computing. New challenges and opportunities arise as the consolidation of cloud computing meets the dispersion of edge computing. SEC2016 is a new conference that focuses on them.
