NEW THIS MONTH!
|Title:||1st International Workshop on Decentralized Resource Sharing in Mobile Computing and Networking|
|Dates:||September, 26th 2006|
|Location:||Los Angeles (co-located with Mobicom 2006)|
|MobiShare aims to provide a forum where researchers from the wireless networking community and the systems community can discuss and present new research relevant to the intersection between the two communities. In particular, MobiShare focuses on the applicability and transfer of decentralized/peer-to-peer techniques to multihop wireless networks (wireless mesh networks, opportunistic (ad hoc) extensions to the Internet, vehicular networks, etc.).|
|Title:||3rd Workshop on Real, Large Distributed Systems (WORLDS '06)|
|Dates:||November 5, 2006|
|Location:||Seattle, WA, USA|
|WORLDS '06 will bring together people who are exploring the new challenges of building widely-distributed networked systems and who lean toward the "rough consensus and running code" school of systems building. Workshop means the emphasis is on focused, fresh ideas and experience. Real means that the workshop will concentrate on systems designed to run on a real platform for a long period of time. Large refers to the numeric and geographic dimensions of the system. WORLDS emphasizes the specific challenges that system designers and researchers must address to run software over a wide area.|
|Title:||Second Workshop on Hot Topics in System Dependability (HotDep'06)|
|Dates:||November 8, 2006|
|Location:||Seattle, WA, USA|
|The goal of HotDep '06 is to bring forth cutting-edge research ideas spanning the domains of fault tolerance/reliability and systems. HotDep will center on critical components of the infrastructures touching our everyday lives: operating systems, networking, security, wide-area and enterprise-scale distributed systems, mobile computing, compilers, and language design. We seek participation and contributions from both academic researchers and industry practitioners to achieve a mix of long-range research vision and technology ideas anchored in immediate reality.|
|Title:||5th Workshop on Hot Topics in Networks|
|Dates:||November 29-30, 2006|
|Location:||Irvine, CA, USA|
|The Fifth Workshop on Hot Topics in Networks, HotNets-V, will bring together researchers in the networking systems community to engage in lively discussion of future trends in networking research and technology. The workshop will provide a venue for researchers to present and discuss ideas that have the potential to significantly impact the community in the long term; its goal is to promote community-wide discussions of those ideas.|
|Title:||ACM SIGOPS Mark Weiser Award Call for Nominations|
The Mark Weiser Award, created in 2001 by ACM SIGOPS, is given annually to an individual who has demonstrated creativity and innovation in operating systems research. The award is named in honor of Mark Weiser, a computing visionary recognized for his research accomplishments during his career at Xerox PARC.
The selection committee will choose the recipient based on: "contributions that are highly creative, innovative, and possibly high-risk, in keeping with the visionary spirit of Mark Weiser." The recipient must have begun his or her career no earlier than 20 years prior to nomination.
ACM SIGOPS presents a $1000 prize to the recipient in memory of Mark and his many contributions to SIGOPS and the operating systems community. The 2006 award will be announced and presented at the OSDI conference in November in Seattle.
Nominations and supporting letters should be sent to Doug Terry, the committee chair, via e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org) by September 1, 2006.
