The Hall of Fame Awards were originally envisioned to serve two purposes. The first was to recognize papers from the long history of operating systems research that have had proven to have widespread impact, considering only papers that have appeared at least ten years earlier. The second was to encourage new authors to aim higher -- to target work that will be seen in the future as having had widespread impact. The selection process was designed to work in two stages: starting in a catch-up mode where up to five papers were selected per year, and then in steady state, where one to two newly eligible papers would be chosen. We have been more successful at the first goal than the second. Since the selection process started in 2005, 34 truly impressive papers have been selected for the HoF. However, the median age of a paper at selection has been 25 years, and only 5 papers published after 1990 have been selected. Frustratingly, the rate of selection of newer papers has not improved; steady state still seems very far off. This is despite the fact that the selected papers were, with few exceptions, seen as having wide impact within ten years of publication. The current procedures also pose difficulties with sustainability of the selection process, procedural transparency, and conflict of interest management. We propose the following modifications to the process: 1) In time for the celebration of the 50th anniversary of the founding of SIGOPS at SOSP 2015, we propose to complete the selection of the most influential papers of the past fifty years of operating systems research. The existing Hall of Fame papers provide a great foundation. In essence, we want to complete the catch-up mode over the next year. We envision the selection being done by a specially-formed program committee with two program co-chairs selected by the SIGOPS chair, with a published CFP, public nomination process, and standard conflict of interest rules. The intention is that the catchup process will cover papers published through SOSP 2005, and that nominations can be made by any SIGOPS member, including members of the PC. 2) To give us time to complete the catch-up process and to reduce duplicate work, we intend to suspend the selection of further papers to the Hall of Fame until the program committee can meet. In particular, we do not intend to announce any new HoF awards at OSDI 2014. 3) Starting with OSDI 2016, we propose to select 1-2 papers annually, restricted to papers that appeared 10-11 years previously, specifically, between 1st October in year (X-11) and 30th Sept in year (X-9). The selection committee for these awards will be made up of the program chairs / co-chairs of the SOSP/OSDI conferences which were held within that 10-11 year timeframe. 4) We propose the appointment of a small standing steering committee to advise the SIGOPS chair on the Hall of Fame selection and to provide process continuity.
