PLOS 2011

Title:Sixth Workshop on Programming Languages and Operating Systems (PLOS 2011)
Submission Deadline:2011-06-17
Webpage:http://plosworkshop.org/2011/
Dates:October 23, 2011
Location:Cascais, Portugal
Contact Email:eeide@cs.utah.edu
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.

IEEE TrustCom 2011

Title:10th IEEE International Conference on Trust, Security and Privacy in Computing and Communications
Submission Deadline:2011-06-30
Webpage:http://trust.csu.edu.cn/conference/trustcom2011
Dates:November, 16-18, 2011
Location:Changsha, China
Contact Email:csgjwang@gmail.com or lcf@cyut.edu.tw
Synopsis:
With rapid development and increasing complexity of computer and communications systems and networks, user requirements for trust, security and privacy are becoming more and more demanding. However, there is a grand challenge that traditional security technologies and measures may not meet user requirements in open, dynamic, heterogeneous, mobile, wireless, and distributed computing environments. Therefore, we need to build systems and networks in which various applications allow users to enjoy more comprehensive services while preserving trust, security and privacy at the same time. As useful and innovative technologies, trusted computing and communications are attracting researchers with more and more attention.

ASPLOS 2012

Title:17th International Conference on Architectural Support for Programming Languages and Operating Systems
Abstract Deadline:2011-07-18
Submission Deadline:2011-07-25
Webpage:http://research.microsoft.com/asplos_2012
Dates:March, 3-7, 2012
Location:London, UK
Contact Email:tharris@microsoft.com
Synopsis:
ASPLOS is the premier forum for multidisciplinary systems research, spanning hardware, computer architecture, compilers, languages, operating systems, networking, and applications. Such work is increasingly important, as computing faces the end of single-processor performance scaling, the divergent trends of mobile and petascale computing, the need for energy efficiency across the computing spectrum, and the growing diversity of users and applications. Like its predecessors, ASPLOS 2012 invites submissions on ground-breaking research at the intersection of architecture, programming languages, and/or operating systems. A hardware or architecture component is not a necessary requirement for publication in ASPLOS, but papers that emphasize only one of the three main focus areas are not encouraged.

SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENTS

Title:PRObE: Call for Nominations
Summary:
CALL FOR NOMINATIONS: 

Steering and Project Selection Committee for NSF PRObE testbed (http://newmexicoconsortium.org/probe)

The NSF-funded Parallel Reconfigurable Observational Environment (PRObE) facility will be making thousands of computers (newmexicoconsortium.org/probe/machines) available to systems researchers for dedicated use in experiments that are not possible or compelling at a smaller scale.  

At full production scale PRObE will provide at least two 1024 node clusters, one of 200 nodes, and some smaller machines with extreme core count and bleeding edge technology.  The first of these clusters are being constructed now and will be available this year.  The large clusters are retired equipment donated by DOE national laboratories. 

Researchers will have complete control of the hardware (can replace all levels of software, including the OS kernel, and inject both hardware and software failures) while they are running experiments  with dedicated resources for days or perhaps weeks. 

The PRObE remote access environment will be based on the Emulab testbed-management software developed by the University of Utah (www.emulab.net).

Probe is targeted at the needs of systems researchers in three communities: 
- high-end or high performance computing, often publishing in the Supercomputing conference (SC), 
- data-intensive scalable computing, often publishing in the Operating System Design and Implementation conference (OSDI), and
- data and storage systems for both, often publishing in the File and Storage Technologies conference (FAST).  

We seek nominations for the steering and project selection committee advising PRObE leadership on policies and proposals for allocation of PRObE facilities to research projects.  We seek leading systems researchers with experience and continuing interest in large scale research experiments and publishing.  In addition to reviewing and advising PRObE leadership on policies and strategic decisions, this committee will allocate resources to proposed projects it deems most compelling.

Please nominate, on or before May 8, 2011, qualified candidates using the web form:
http://newmexicoconsortium.org/probe/committee-nominations

Nominated candidates will be elected using a web voting mechanism on the same web site between May 9 and May 22, 2011.

PRObE is a collaborative effort by the New Mexico Consortium (NMC), Los Alamos National Laboratory, Carnegie Mellon University, and the University of Utah. It is housed at NMC in the Los Alamos Research Park.  

PRObE's leadership team includes:
- Gary Grider, Los Alamos National Laboratory
- Andree Jacobson, New Mexico Consortium
- Katharine Chartrand, New Mexico Consortium
- Garth Gibson, Carnegie Mellon University and Panasas Inc.
- Robert Ricci, University of Utah
