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.

CloudComp2010

Title:The 2nd International Conference on Cloud Computing (CloudComp2010)
Submission Deadline:2010-05-31
Webpage:http://www.cloudcomp.eu

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

Location:Vancouver, Canada
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

                     ACM SIGCOMM 2010 - Call for Posters
      http://conferences.sigcomm.org/sigcomm/2010/posters.php
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The  SIGCOMM  poster session showcases work-in-progress in an informal setting. Topics of interest are the same as research topics in the SIGCOMM conference call for papers.

Although anyone can submit a poster, preference will be given to posters where the primary contribution is from one or more students. Posters will be reviewed  by  members  of the SIGCOMM Poster Session Committee. At the conference, student posters must be presented by a student. Authors of accepted papers in SIGCOMM 2009 may not submit a poster on the same work in those papers.

Student Research Competition

   For the first time, the SIGCOMM poster session will also serve as an ACM
   student research competition. Qualified entrants must have current ACM
   student membership, have graduate or undergraduate student status at the
   time of submission (May 2010, below), and be submitted by a single student
   author. Supervisors are not permitted to coauthor the poster. Undergraduates
   and graduate students will be treated in separate divisions. (Students
   starting their first year of graduate school at the time of the conference
   will be considered as undergraduates.) A small travel supplement is made
   available to accepted entrants: please also submit applications for travel
   grant support. The ACM SRC program is sponsored by Microsoft Research.
   Winners will advance to ACM Grand Finals of the Student Research Competition
   to compete against the winners of other ACM conferences.

Why Should You Submit a Poster?

   This is a great chance especially for students to obtain interesting and
   valuable feedback on ongoing research from a knowledgeable crowd at the
   conference. In addition, some submissions will be forwarded for publication
   to ACM SIGCOMM's newletter, the ACM Computer Communication Review (CCR).

Travel Grants for Student Posters

   Students who are submitting posters are highly encouraged to examine if they
   are eligible for student travel grants.

What is a Poster?

   We define a poster to be A0 paper size in portrait mode (841x1189mm), to
   which  you  can  affix visually appealing material that describes your
   research. Alternatively, you can use the space as a continuum. You should
   prepare the best material (visually appealing and succinct) that effectively
   communicates your research problem, techniques, results, and what is novel
   and important about your work.

   Note that you do not submit such a large-format image; only an abstract
   describing in text what the poster would present.

What and Where to Submit

   Please    submit    a    two-page   abstract   describing   the   work
   http://sigcomm10-posters.cs.umd.edu/. The decision will be taken primarily
   by reading the abstract.

   Submissions  are  single  blind,  so please include authors' names and
   affiliation.

  Content:

   The abstract should clearly state:
     * the problem being addressed;
     * what makes this problem interesting, important, and difficult;
     * your approach to the problem;
     * the key contribution.

   In the final version of the abstract, you should include a URL that provides
   additional information about your work to the attendees.

  Formatting:

   Prepare  your  abstract  using ACM conference style, modified to 10pt.
   Concretely, two columns, minimum 10pt times with 0.75 inch margins and 1/3
   inch space between columns.

   The abstract must be within the page limit and in PDF format. Word documents
   will not be accepted. At the conference, we will distribute the abstracts to
   all conference attendees.

                      SIGCOMM 2010 - Call for Demos
 http://conferences.sigcomm.org/sigcomm/2010/demos.php
--------------------------------------------------------------------

The SIGCOMM demo session showcases technical demonstrations, exhibits, and prototypes. Research demonstrations should present innovative research prototypes that show new research related to the topics included in the SIGCOMM conference call for papers.

What and Where to Submit

   Please   submit   a   three-page   abstract  describing  the  work  to
   http://sigcomm10-posters.cs.umd.edu/. The decision will be taken primarily
   by reading the abstract.

Content:

   The abstract should include:
     * Goals of the demo and the basic idea that it supports
     * Any related publications or technical reports
     * Equipment to be used for the demo (Note that we provide only the space
       and wireless Internet access.)
     * Space needed
     * Setup time required
     * Additional  facilities needed, including power and Internet access
       requirements
     * A URL with any extra information, if needed
     * Whether  the  demo  is  eligible  for the student travel grant; if
       applicable, please identify the lead student(s) and affiliation(s)
     * Submissions are single blind, so please include authors' names and
       affiliation.

   Accepted demos will be expected to contribute a two-page abstract for the
   conference proceedings or archive. Obviously, this will not include details
   about setup time and equipment, but should instead focus on the idea and
   include screenshots or other images from the live demonstration as needed.
   At the conference, we will distribute the abstracts to all attendees.

Formatting:

   Prepare  your  abstract  using ACM conference style, modified to 10pt.
   Concretely, two columns, minimum 10pt times with 0.75 inch margins and 1/3
   inch space between columns.

   The abstract must be within the page limit and in PDF format. Word documents
   will not be accepted.

   All demo proposals will be reviewed by the SIGCOMM 2009 Poster and Demo
