Synopsis:
More powerful devices and lower cost radio technologies are facilitating the transition to the Mobile Internet where users can access through different devices and access technologies a diverse range of services and applications anytime, anywhere. However, the huge increase in demand that this brings cannot easily be met by current radio access systems. There is significant effort within the community to develop more advanced BWA technologies - activities span the wireless domain, ranging from more advanced antenna technologies and cooperative relays, to mesh networking systems and many more: future networks will likely employ some mix of these different mechanisms.

WESS 2011

Title:6-th Workshop on Embedded Systems Security (WESS'11)
Abstract Deadline:2011-07-15
Submission Deadline:2011-07-22
Webpage:http://www.wess-workshop.org
Dates:October 13, 2011
Location:Taipei, Taiwan
Contact Email:general-chair@wess-workshop.org
Synopsis:
Embedded computing systems are used widely in application areas that require security, from safety-critical systems to vital information management. They are vulnerable to remote intrusion, local intrusion, fault-based and power/timing-based attacks, intellectual-property theft, subversion, hijacking, etc. These security issues are different from the ones in traditional computing systems for several reasons. For example, embedded devices are resource-constrained, thus requiring computationally efficient solutions, while they have a very weak physical trust boundary that enables many different implementation-oriented attacks. WESS provides a forum to present novel ideas on security issues related to the design, operation and testing of secure embedded systems.

ASPLOS 2012

Title:17th International Conference on Architectural Support for Programming Languages and Operating Systems
Abstract Deadline:2011-07-18
Submission Deadline:2011-07-25
Webpage:http://research.microsoft.com/asplos_2012
Dates:March, 3-7, 2012
Location:London, UK
Contact Email:tharris@microsoft.com
Synopsis:
ASPLOS is the premier forum for multidisciplinary systems research, spanning hardware, computer architecture, compilers, languages, operating systems, networking, and applications. Such work is increasingly important, as computing faces the end of single-processor performance scaling, the divergent trends of mobile and petascale computing, the need for energy efficiency across the computing spectrum, and the growing diversity of users and applications. Like its predecessors, ASPLOS 2012 invites submissions on ground-breaking research at the intersection of architecture, programming languages, and/or operating systems. A hardware or architecture component is not a necessary requirement for publication in ASPLOS, but papers that emphasize only one of the three main focus areas are not encouraged.

NEW THIS MONTH!

PPCloud 2011

Title:Privacy and Provenance in the Cloud
Submission Deadline:2011-08-10
Webpage:http://ppcloud.org
Dates:December, 5-8, 2011
Location:Melbourne, Australia
Contact Email:Kris.Bubendorfer@ecs.vuw.ac.nz
Synopsis:
Clouds enable customers to reduce startup costs, amortize operating costs and increase the flexibility of services through the on-demand acquisition of infrastructure and services. While the cloud presents a compelling proposition, understanding the privacy risks and developing effective solutions is critical for its success. In tension with the need for privacy, is provenance - that is, the need to know who created or is responsible for a piece of data, through whose hands it has passed, who has modified it (or if). The balance between the conflicting requirements of privacy and provenance is a significant challenge for future cloud research.
