Synopsis:
Historically, operating system development and programming language development went hand-in-hand. Today, although the systems community at large retains an iron grip on C, many people continue to explore novel approaches to OS construction based on new programming language ideas. This workshop will bring together researchers and developers from the programming language and operating system domains to discuss recent work at the intersection of these fields. It will be a platform for discussing new visions, challenges, experiences, problems, and solutions arising from the application of advanced programming and software engineering concepts to operating systems construction, and vice versa.

SLAML 2011

Title:Managing Large-Scale Systems via the Analysis of System Logs and the Application of Machine Learning Techniques
Submission Deadline:2011-06-17
Webpage:http://sosp2011.gsd.inesc-id.pt/workshops/slaml
Dates:October 23-26, 2011
Location:Cascais Portugal
Contact Email:casasguix1@llnl.gov
Synopsis:
Modern large-scale systems are challenging to manage. Fortunately, as these systems generate massive amounts of performance and diagnostic data, there is an opportunity to make system administration and development simpler via automated techniques to extract actionable information from the data. This workshop addresses this problem in two thrusts: (i) the analysis of raw system data logs, and (ii) the application of machine learning to systems problems. We expect the large overlap in these topics to promote a rich interchange of ideas between the areas.
