ROME 2013

Title:1st Workshop on Runtime and Operating Systems for the Many-core Era
Submission Deadline:2013-06-10
Dates:August, 26-26, 2013
Location:Aachen, Germany
Since the beginning of the multicore era, parallel processing has become prevalent across the board. However, in order to continue a performance increase according to Moores Law, a next step needs to be taken: away from common multicores towards innovative many-core architectures. Such systems, equipped with a significant higher amount of cores per chip than multicores, pose challenges in both hardware and software design. The ROME workshop is addressed to the new challenges in hardware/software co-design of runtime and operating systems in order to exploit the theoretically available performance as effectively as possible.

The LCPC workshop is a forum for sharing research on all aspects of concurrency: parallel languages, parallel programming models, compilers, runtime systems, and tools. The scope of the workshop spans foundational results and practical experience, early ideas and interesting results. LCPC encourages work that goes outside the scope of scientific computing and enables parallel programming in new areas, such as mobile computing and data centers. For more info, please visit:


Title:International Conference On Principles Of DIstributed Systems
Submission Deadline:2013-06-23
Location:Nice, France
(Note change of focus and procedure from previous years) OPODIS is an open forum for the exchange of state-of-the-art knowledge on all aspects of distributed computing and distributed computer systems. Where OPODIS has traditionally strongly theoretical, this year we also solicit contributions on the boundary between theoretical solutions and practical implementations, covering experimentation and quantitative assessments. Reviewing and selection of papers will be done in two phases. (1) Quick filtering by a small committee + immediate notification; (2) thorough reviewing process by ≥4 PC members.


Title:9th International Symposium on Algorithms and Experiments for Sensor Systems, Wireless Networks and Distributed Robotics
Submission Deadline:2013-06-26
Dates:09, 05-06, 2013
Location:Sophia Antipolis, France
ALGOSENSORS is an international Symposium dedicated to the algorithmic aspects of wireless networks, static or mobile. Originally focused solely on sensor networks, it now covers more broadly algorithmic issues arising in all wireless networks of computational entities, including sensor networks, sensor-actuator networks, and systems of autonomous mobile robots. In particular, it focuses on the design and analysis of discrete and distributed algorithms, on models of computation and complexity, on experimental analysis, in the context of wireless networks, sensor networks, and robotic networks. The goal is to reinforce the foundational and algorithmic aspects of the research in these areas.

SoCC 2013

Title:ACM Symposium on Cloud Computing 2013
Submission Deadline:2013-07-02
Dates:October, 1-3, 2013
Location:Santa Clara, CA, USA
The ACM Symposium on Cloud Computing 2013 will be the fourth in a new series of symposia that brings together researchers, developers, users, and practitioners interested in cloud computing. ACM SoCC is the premier conference on cloud computing; it is the only conference co-sponsored by the ACM SIGMOD and SIGOPS. The scope of SoCC is broad and encompasses diverse systems topics such as software as a service, virtualization, and scalable cloud data services. It is focusing on a wide spectrum of topics in the areas of systems and data management that must be revisited in the context of cloud computing.

Title:19th International Conference on Architectural Support for Programming Languages and Operating Systems (ASPLOS'14)
Abstract Deadline:2013-07-17
Submission Deadline:2013-07-24
Dates:March, 1-5, 2014
Location:Salt Lake City, UT, USA
ASPLOS is the premier forum for multidisciplinary systems research spanning computer architecture, programming languages and compilers, operating systems and networking, as well as applications and user interfaces. The research may target diverse goals such as performance, energy/thermal efficiency, resiliency, security, and sustainability. The importance of such cross-cutting research continues to grow as we grapple with the end of Dennard scaling, the explosion of big data, scales ranging from ultra-low power wearable devices to exascale parallel and cloud computers, the need for sustainability, and increasingly human-centered applications. ASPLOS embraces systems research that directly targets these new problems in new ways.

The goal is to create a dialogue about common goals and to discuss solutions for security problems in cloud computing, relying on operating system techniques, secure distributed protocols, cryptographic methods, and the trusted computing paradigm. Workshop chairs are Christian Cachin, IBM Research - Zurich (Switzerland), and Rüdiger Kapitza, Technische Universität Braunschweig (Germany). The workshop is organized in collaboration with the Trustworthy Clouds — Privacy and Resilience for Internet-scale Critical Infrastructure research project.
