||Workshop on Industrial Experiences with Systems Software
||Submission Deadline: July 15, 2002, Conference Date: December 8, 2002
|WIESS '02 aims to bridge the gulf between industrial experience
with systems software (such as operating systems, compilers, large applications,
embedded systems, etc.) and the research community. The WIESS '02 Program
committee seeks submissions from the industry, reporting on their experiences,
successes, failures, and needs. We're also looking for submissions from
researchers, reporting on their own experiences in relevant areas such
as technology transfer, collaborations between research and industry, etc.
WIESS will focus on papers that draw important conclusions from practical
experience in developing and using system software solutions. Submissions
are due Monday, July 15, 2002.
||Second Workshop on Evaluating and Architecting System dependabilitY
||Sunday, October 6, 2002
|The Second Workshop on Evaluating and Architecting System dependabilitY
(EASY-02) will be held immediately preceding ASPLOS-X. The goal of the
workshop is to increase the dialog between the architecture, operating
systems, programming languages and dependable systems communities on dependability-related
topics. The program committee seeks full (eight to ten page) papers on
dependability of all aspects of the system, including processor and memory
chips, network and storage devices, cluster and SMP multiprocessing, operating
systems software, application software, and programming language support.
To maximize interest among the communities, preference will be given to
empirical or practical studies, as opposed to formal or theoretical studies.
||ACM Symposium on Principles of Distributed Computing: Program and Registration
||July 21-24, 2002
|PODC is a conference that focuses on research in the theory, design,
specification or implementation of distributed systems. For more information,
please visit: http://www.podc.org/podc2002/ There, you will find links
for: - Tentative conference program - Conference registration - Local information
(including hotel) - Temporary notices (e.g., on room sharing). Notes: -
The conference will start with a tutorial on the MORNING of SUNDAY July
21. Technical sessions will start the SAME AFTERNOON. The conference will
end at mid-day on WEDNESDAY. - The deadline for "on-time" registration
is June 17. After that day, registration fees will go up by 75-135 USD.
|The USITS ?03 Program Committee seeks both innovative research and
quantified experience in Internet applications, technologies, and systems.
We seek papers describing original work concerning the design, implementation,
and application of Internet technologies. Besides mature work, we also
encourage papers outlining a compelling distant vision of the future, exceptionally
promising prototypes, or enlightening negative results. Case studies and
experience papers are particularly welcome. Submissions are due on September
16, 2002. For more information, please visit http://www.usenix.org/events/usits03/cfp/.
We look forward to receiving your submissions!
||International Conference on Measurement and Modeling of Computer Systems
||June 10-14 2003
|The SIGMETRICS conference solicits papers on the development and
application of state-of-the-art, broadly applicable analytic, simulation,
and measurement-based performance evaluation techniques. We are interested
in techniques whose aim is to evaluate a system's dependability, security,
correctness, or power consumption as well as more traditional performance
metrics. Of particular interest is work that furthers the state of the
art in performance evaluation methods, or that creatively applies previously
developed methods to gain important insights into key design trade-offs
in complex computer and communication systems.
||Mark Weiser Award Nominations
|The Mark Weiser Award is an award created in 2001 by ACM SIGOPS,
to be given to an individual who has demonstrated creativity and innovation
in operating systems research. The recipient must have begun his or her
career no earlier than 20 years prior to nomination. More information is
available on the award web site at http://www.acm.org/sigops/weiser_award.html
and nominations are due on September 1, 2002.
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.
