Title:2010 IEEE International Conference on Technologies for Homeland Security
Abstract Deadline:2010-04-24
Submission Deadline:2010-08-13
Dates:November 8-10, 2010
Location:Waltham, MA, USA
The tenth annual IEEE Conference on Technologies for Homeland Security (IEEE HST '10) will focus on innovative technologies for deterring and preventing attacks, protecting critical infrastructure and individuals, and mitigating damage and expediting recovery. Submissions are desired in the broad areas of critical infrastructure and key resources protection (CIKR), border protection and monitoring, and disaster recovery and response, with application within about five years.

SOCC 2010 Call for Participation

Title:ACM Symposium on Cloud Computing
Abstract Deadline:2010-05-07
Submission Deadline:2010-06-11
Dates:June, 10-11, 2010
Location:Indianapolis, IN, USA
The final program for SOCC 2010 is now online. In addition to a technical program of research papers, position papers and industrial presentations, we are happy to announce three keynote talks from leading architects of Cloud systems: Evolution and Future Directions of Large-Scale Storage and Computation Systems at Google Jeffrey Dean (Google) Building Facebook: Performance at Massive Scale Jason Sobel (Facebook) The Internal Design of's Multi-Tenant Architecture Rob Woollen ( Please note: - Early registration ends May 7. - The conference hotel is holding rooms at a reduced rate until May 15.

NetEcon 2010

Title:2010 Workshop on the Economics of Networks, Systems, and Computation
Submission Deadline:2010-06-04
Dates:October 3, 6, or 7, 2010
Location:Vancouver, BC, Canada
NetEcon '10 will be co-located with the 9th USENIX Symposium on Operating Systems Design and Implementation (OSDI '10), which will take place October 4–6, 2010. The emergence of the Internet as a global platform for computation and communication has sparked the development and deployment of many large-scale networked systems. Often these systems involve multiple stakeholders with divergent or even competing interests. Unmitigated selfish behavior in these systems can lead to high inefficiency or even complete collapse. The NetEcon Workshop promotes multi-disciplinary work and discussion about the design and analysis of incentives, economics, and game-theoretic principles in networked systems.

WASL 2010

Title:Workshop on the Analysis of System Logs (WASL) 2010
Submission Deadline:2010-06-13
Dates:October 3, 2010
Location:Vancouver, Canada
System logs are a rich information source for analyzing and diagnosing system problems and predicting future events. However, most of this information is wasted due its lack of organization and cross-vendor semantic consistency. WASL focuses on novel techniques for extracting operationally useful information from existing logs and methods to improve the information content of future logs. Topics: -Reports on publicly available log sources -Log anonymization -Log feature detection and extraction -Prediction of malfunction or misuse -Statistical log characterization -Log compression/comparison -Methods to enhance and standardize log semantics -Diagnostic techniques -Log visualization -Analysis of services (problem ticket) logs

HPDC 2010 (Call For Participation)

Title:19th ACM International Symposium on High Performance Distributed Systems
Abstract Deadline:2010-06-20
Submission Deadline:2010-06-25
Dates:June 20-25, 2010
Location:Chicago, IL, USA
The ACM International Symposium on High Performance Distributed Computing (HPDC) is the premier venue for presenting the latest research on the design, implementation, evaluation, and use of parallel and distributed systems for high performance and high end computing. The 19th installment of HPDC combines the main conference, eight workshops, and a co-located meeting of the Open Grid Forum. We seek participation in each of these events, as well as in an industry session and a wild and crazy ideas session. Student travel grants are also available.


Title:23rd IEEE International Symposium on Computer-Based Medical Systems 2010
Submission Deadline:2010-06-24
Dates:October, 12-15, 2010
Location:Perth, Australia
he 23rd IEEE International Symposium on Computer-Based Medical Systems (CBMS 2010) is intended to provide an international forum for discussing the latest results in the field of computational medicine. The scientific program of CBMS 2010 will consist of invited keynote talks given by leading scientists in the field, and regular and special track sessions that cover a broad array of issues which relate computing to medicine.


WTA 2010

Title:The 6th International Symposium on Wireless sensor network Technologies and Applications for Smart Space
Submission Deadline:2010-06-30
Dates:Dec., 9-11, 2010
Location:Gwangju, Korea
Contact, and
The 6th International Symposium on Wireless sensor network Technologies and Applications for Smart Space (WTA 2010) will be held in Gwangju, Korea, December 9-11, 2010. Smart Spaces (SS) represents an advanced communication environment featuring daily-life objects that continuously involve and are focused on final non-expert users. SS has rapidly emerged as an exciting new paradigm that tends to include different active research fields such as ubiquitous, grid, and P2P computing. SS environments have recently raised tremendous interests in both the academic and the industrial research communities as one of the most promising application fields for pervasive computing services.

ICDCN 2011

Submission Deadline:2010-07-08
Dates:Jan, 02-05, 2011
Location:Bangalore, India
Original technical papers in all areas of theory and practice of distributed systems and networking are solicited.


CAUC 2010

Title:Workshop on Challenges on Ad Hoc and Ubiquitous Computing
Submission Deadline:2010-07-10
Dates:November, 17-19, 2010
Location:Hiroshima, Japan
The number of devices empowered with wireless communication capabilities has experienced an expressive growth over recent years. There is an increasing interest in using such devices to support applications and services in a wireless setting. However, there are many challenges in interconnecting wireless devices in a robust, efficient, and decentralized manner. Challenges that need to be addressed include fast adaptation to changes in operating conditions, fault-tolerance, scalability, QoS assurance, mobility management, resource sharing and security. This Workshop will be held in Conjunction with The First International Conference on Networking and Computing (ICNC'10)



Title:1st ACM Asia-Pacific Workshop on Systems (APSys 2010)

The 9th USENIX Conference on File and Storage Technologies (FAST '11) brings together storage system researchers and practitioners to explore new directions in the design, implementation, evaluation, and deployment of storage systems. "Storage systems" is interpreted broadly: everything from low-level storage-devices up to information management is of interest. The conference will consist of two and a half days of technical presentations, including refereed papers, Work-in-Progress (WiP) reports, and a poster session.

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.
