The goal of HotDep 2010 is to bring forth cutting-edge research ideas spanning the domains of fault tolerance/reliability and systems, and to impact the two associated research communities (i.e., researchers who attend traditional "dependability" conferences such as DSN and ISSRE, and those who attend "systems" conferences such as OSDI, SOSP, and EuroSys) by building linkages between them and sharing ideas and challenges.

NetEcon 2010

Title:2010 Workshop on the Economics of Networks, Systems, and Computation
Submission Deadline:2010-06-04
Webpage:http://www.usenix.org/events/netecon10/cfp/
Dates:October 3, 6, or 7, 2010
Location:Vancouver, BC, Canada
Contact Email:netecon10chairs@usenix.org
Synopsis:
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

Contact Email:mohror1@llnl.gov
Synopsis:
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
