SoCC 2017

Title:ACM Symposium on Cloud Computing 2017
Abstract Deadline:2017-04-28
Submission Deadline:2017-05-05
Dates:Sep 25-27, 2017
Location:Santa Clara, California, USA
The annual ACM Symposium on Cloud Computing (SoCC'17) brings together researchers, developers, users, and practitioners interested in cloud computing. ACM SoCC'17 is the 8th edition of the premier conference on cloud computing; it is the only conference co-sponsored by the ACM Special Interest Groups on Management of Data (SIGMOD) and on Operating Systems (SIGOPS). SoCC will be held in Silicon Valley, to foster connections between the academic and industrial communities operating in the cloud space. We solicit original contributions on all aspects of cloud computing. We particularly encourage submissions on the research, development, practice, and experience of cloud computing systems and data management.

ISSRE 2017

Title:28th IEEE International Symposium on Software Reliability Engineering
Abstract Deadline:2017-04-28
Submission Deadline:2017-05-05
Dates:Oct, 23-26, 2017
Location:Toulouse, France
The 28th IEEE International Symposium on Software Reliability Engineering (ISSRE) is the leading conference in its field. ISSRE focuses on innovative, high-impact techniques and tools for assessing, predicting, and improving the reliability, safety, and security of software products. ISSRE emphasizes industrial relevance and rigorous empirical studies. ISSRE has grown over the years to become one of the few forums where the technical leadership from both academic institutions and economic players meet to learn from each other.


ROME 2017

Title: 5th Workshop on Runtime and Operating Systems for the Many-core Era
Submission Deadline:2017-05-12
Dates:August 28
Location:Santiago de Compostela, Spain
Parallel processing has become prevalent across the board. In order to continue a performance increase, innovative many-core architectures will be developed. Such systems, equipped with a significant higher amount of cores per chip than multicores, pose challenges in both hardware and software design. On the hardware side, on-chip networks, scratchpads, hybrid memory cubes, non-volatile and stacked memory, as well as deep cache-hierarchies, and novel cache-coherence strategies will enrich the current research areas. The ROME workshop is addressed to the new challenges in hardware/software co-design of runtime and operating systems in order to exploit the available performance as effectively as possible.


Middleware 2017

Title:18th ACM/IFIP/USENIX International Middleware Conference
Abstract Deadline:2017-05-12
Submission Deadline:2017-05-19
Dates:December, 11-15, 2017
Location:Las Vegas, Nevada
The annual ACM/IFIP/USENIX Middleware conference is a major forum for the discussion of innovations and recent advances in the design, construction and use of middleware systems. Following the success of past conferences in this series, the 18th International Middleware Conference will be the premier event for middleware research, technology and experimentation in 2017. Highlights of the conference will include a high quality single-track technical program, invited speakers, an industrial track, panel discussions involving academic and industry leaders, poster and demonstration presentations, a doctoral symposium, and workshops.



Title:13th International Symposium on Algorithms and Experiments for Wireless Sensor Networks
Abstract Deadline:2017-05-22
Submission Deadline:2017-05-29
Dates:September, 7-8, 2017
Location:Vienna, Austria
ALGOSENSORS is an international symposium dedicated to the algorithmic aspects of wireless networks. Originally focused on sensor networks, it now covers algorithmic issues arising in wireless networks of all types of computational entities, static or mobile, including sensor networks, sensor-actuator networks, autonomous robots. The focus is on the design and analysis of algorithms, models of computation, and experimental analysis.


APSys 2017

Title:8th ACM SIGOPS Asia-Pacific Workshop on Systems (APSys 2017)
Abstract Deadline:2017-06-02
Submission Deadline:2017-06-09
Dates:September, 2-3, 2017
Location:Indian Institute of Technology Bombay, Mumbai, India
The Eighth ACM SIGOPS Asia-Pacific Workshop on Systems (APSys 2017) will be held in Mumbai at the Indian Institute of Technology Bombay on 2nd & 3rd September 2017. APSys 2017 will continue to be a lively forum for systems researchers and practitioners across the world to meet, interact, and collaborate with their peers from the Asia/Pacific region.

C&TC 2017

Title:7th International Symposium on Secure Virtual Infrastructures -- Cloud and Trusted Computing
Abstract Deadline:2017-07-05
Submission Deadline:2017-07-12
Dates:10, 23-24, 2017
Location:Rhodos, Greece
Cloud and Trusted Computing (C&TC 2017) is the 7th International Symposium on Cloud Computing, Trusted Computing and Secure Virtual Infrastructures, organized as a component conference of the OnTheMove Federated Conferences & Workshops. C&TC 2017 will be held in Rhodes, Greece. The conference solicits submissions from both academia and industry presenting novel research in the context of Cloud Computing, Big Data, and IoT, presenting theoretical and practical approaches to cloud, big data, and IoT trust, security, privacy and risk management. The conference will provide a special focus on the intersection between cloud paradigm, big data analytics, and IoT integration, bringing together experts from the three communities to discuss on the vital issues of trust, security, privacy and risk management in Cloud Computing, shedding the light on novel issues and requirements in big data and IoT domains. Potential contributions could cover new approaches, methodologies, protocols, tools, or verification and validation techniques. We also welcome review papers that analyze critically the current status of trust, security, privacy and risk management in the cloud, big data, and IoT. Papers from practitioners who encounter trust, security, privacy, and risk management problems, and seek understanding are finally welcome.

DeepSpec 2017

Title:1st DeepSpec Summer School on Verified Systems
Submission Deadline:2017-07-13

Title:ACM Marks 50 Years of the ACM A.M. Turing Award and Computing's Greatest Achievements

Since its inauguration in 1966, the ACM A. M. Turing Award has recognized major contributions of lasting importance in computing. Through the years, it has become the most prestigious technical award in the field, often referred to as the “Nobel Prize of computing.”

During the next several months, ACM will celebrate 50 years of the Turing Award and the visionaries who have received it. Our aim is to highlight the significant impact of the contributions of the Turing Laureates on computing and society, to look ahead to the future of technology and innovation, and to help inspire the next generation of computer scientists to invent and dream.
