Title:Conference on File Systems and Storage Technologies
Deadline: 28-Jan-2002
Conference: January 28-30, 2002
The FAST conference brings together the top storage systems researchers and practitioners to explore the design, implementation, and uses of storage systems. FAST will be the successor to IOPADS, which for several years was the top conference dedicated to parallel and distributed I/O systems. FAST will consist of 2.5 days of technical presentations, including refereed papers, invited talks, and an introductory keynote address. Work-in-progress presentations and informal Birds-of-a-Feather sessions will round out the conference experience allowing attendees to meet respected colleagues and provide valuable feedback.

Title:International Symposium on Computer Performance Modeling, Measurement and Evaluation
Deadline: 24-Mar-2002
Conference: September 22-27, 2002
Performance2002 conference solicits superior papers on the development and application of state-of-the-art analytic, simulation, and measurement-based performance evaluation techniques. Of particular interest this year is work that applies performance evaluation methodologies to design and evaluation issues in important new areas such as: Internet and Web performance, Web server software and architecture performance, active networks, content distribution networks, network and server QoS, and security. Papers that advance the state-of-the-art in evaluation methods or that creatively apply methods to system design issues are also solicited.

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.
