ANNOUNCEMENTS

Title: Workshop on Network-I/O Convergence: Experience, Lessons, Implications
Deadline: 31-Jan-2003
Webpage: http://www.acm.org/sigcomm/sigcomm2003/workshop/niceli
Conference: in conjunction with SIGCOMM 2003, Karlsruhe, Germany, August, 2003
Synopsis:
The performance and commodity price advantages of modern LANs have created a convergence of networks and I/O. This convergence promises both price efficiencies and interoperability, for storage and for cluster interconnect. NICELI provides a forum for researchers and practitioners to discuss the merits, drawbacks, applications, and practical implications of protocol and implementation designs. Approaches based on Internet protocols are of particular interest. We invite submissions of research results, protocol design rationales, significant implementation experience, and architectural papers. Both technical papers and position statements are welcome. Co-chairs: Allyn Romanow, Jeff Mogul.

Title:Ninth Workshop on Hot Topics in Operating Systems
Deadline: 10-Jan-2003
Webpage: http://www.usenix.org/events/hotos03/
Conference: May 18-21, 2003, Lihue, Hawaii, on the island of Kauai
Synopsis:
The Ninth Workshop on Hot Topics in Operating Systems (HotOS-IX) will be held in Lihue, Hawaii, on the island of Kauai, on May 18-21, 2003. About 60 participants will be selected based upon submitted position papers, which are due on January 10, 2003. The workshop will bring together people doing innovative work in the systems area, broadly construed, for three days of interaction, with all attendees being active participants and contributors throughout the workshop. Continuing the HotOS tradition, this workshop will be a place to present and discuss new ideas about and affecting systems software, including how new application scenarios and requirements are shaping systems today.

Title:ACM Principles of Distributed Computing
Deadline: 31-Jan-2003
Webpage: http://www.podc.org/podc2003/
Conference: July 13-16, 2003
Synopsis:
We are soliciting research contributions on the design, specification, implementation, application and theory of distributed systems. We are continuing to broaden the conference by actively seeking papers reporting on the implementation, analysis, evaluation, and deployment of real systems. We will favor work that explores new territory or reflects on experience with practical applications of the community's knowledge. Submissions on any topic in the intersection of security and distributed computing are solicited for the Security in Distributed Computing Special Track.

Title:19th ACM Symposium on Operating Systems Principles
Deadline: 24-Mar-2003
Webpage: http://www.cs.rochester.edu/sosp2003/
Conference: October 19-22, 2003
Synopsis:
Authors are invited to submit papers to the 19th Symposium on Operating System Principles (SOSP) reporting on original research related to the design, implementation, analysis, evaluation, and deployment of operating systems. We seek submissions of high quality that significantly further the knowledge and understanding of the systems community. In keeping with SOSP tradition, we will favor work that explores new territory, continues a significant research dialog, or reflects on experience with practical applications of the community's knowledge. Papers of particular merit will be forwarded to ACM Transactions on Computer Systems for possible publication in a special issue.

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.
