|The FAST conference brings together the top storage systems researchers
and practitioners to explore the design, implementation, and uses of storage
systems. FAST will be the successor to IOPADS, which for several years
was the top conference dedicated to parallel and distributed I/O systems.
FAST will consist of two days of technical presentations, including refereed
papers, invited talks, and an introductory keynote address. Work-in-progress
presentations and informal Birds-of-a-Feather sessions will round out the
conference experience allowing attendees to meet respected colleagues and
provide valuable feedback. Register early and SAVE! FAST is sponsored by
USENIX, in cooperation with ACM/SIGOPS and IEEE TCOS.
|Middleware 2001, like its two predecessors, is a synthesis of the
major conferences and workshops in distributed systems platforms and open
distributed processing. The focus of Middleware 2001 is on the design,
implementation, deployment and evaluation of distributed systems platforms
and architectures for future networked environments. Of particular interest
is experience with both new and existing architectures and platforms (such
as RM-ODP, CORBA, RMI and DCOM) in environments which may include public,
private and mobile networks, overlaid wired and wireless technologies,
IPv6 and IP multicast, multimedia and real-time information and an increasing
volume of WWW and Java traffic.
||The 2002 World Wide Web Conference
||7-11 May 2002
|This prestigious conference organized by the International World
Wide Web Conference Committee (IW3C2) also provides a public forum for
the WWW Consortium (W3C) through the annual W3C track. Topics include but
are not limited to the following: Applications, Browsers and User Interfaces,
Electronic Commerce and Security, Hypermedia, Languages, Mobility and Wireless
Access, Multimedia, Performance, Searching and Querying, Indexing and Crawling,
and Semantic Web.
|Deadline: 12 Nov 2001 (FREENIX track) Deadline: 19 Nov 2001 (general
refereed track) USENIX is the Advanced Computing Systems Association. For
over 25 years, its members have come from a broad community of developers,
researchers, system administrators and engineers with interests spanning
the full range of technology. As the core conference of this community,
the USENIX Annual Technical Conference is the premier forum for computing
professionals to share the results of their latest and best work, develop
new ideas and solutions, and connect with their colleagues.
||Fifth Workshop on Computer Architecture Evaluation using Commercial
||Feb. 2, 2002, Preceeds Eighth International Symposium on High Performance
|Building on the positive feedback enjoyed by the previous Workshops
on Computer Architecture Evaluation using Commercial Workloads, this fifth
workshop will again bring together researchers and practitioners in computer
architecture and commercial workloads from industry and academia. In the
course of one day, we will discuss work-in-progress that utilizes commercial
workloads for the evaluation of computer architectures. By discussing this
ongoing research, the workshop will expose participants to the characteristics
of commercial workload behavior and provide an understanding of how commercial
workloads exercise computer systems.
|Semantics preservation between source and target program is the
commonly accepted minimum requirement to be ensured by compilers. The precise
meaning, however, is often only implicit. As a rule of thumb, verification
tends to interpret semantics preservation in a very tight sense, not only
but also to simplify the verification task. Optimization generally prefers
a more liberal view in order to enable more powerful transformations otherwise
|Peer-to-peer has emerged as a promising new paradigm for distributed
computing. The 1st International Workshop on Peer-to-Peer Systems (IPTPS'02)
aims to provide a forum for researchers active in peer-to-peer computing
to discuss the state-of-the-art and to identify key research challenges
in peer-to-peer computing. The goal of the workshop is to examine peer-to-peer
technologies, applications and systems, and also to identify key research
issues and challenges that lie ahead. In the context of this workshop,
peer-to-peer systems are characterized as being decentralized, self-organizing
distributed systems, in which all or most communication is symmetric.
||Power-Aware Computer Systems Workshop
||Held in conjunction with HPCA-8
|Higher power and energy dissipation in recent years has led to an
increase in packaging cost and a decrease in product reliability in all
segments of computing market, and a significant reduction of battery life
in portable systems. The workshop on Power-Aware Computer Systems, will
bring together experts from key areas in computer system design, interested
in power-aware and low-power design and evlauation.
||SOSP 2003 Location Solicitation
|If you have a good idea for the location of SOSP 2003, please contact
David Kotz, SIGOPS chair. European locations might be nice. The more information
you can gather about the place, the better: what sort of conference facilities
exist? what are the housing options? what are the special features about
the site or the surroundings? who are the people who might put significant
effort to making SOSP a success at that location? how far is it from major
||SOSP 2003 Program Chair
|We are very pleased to announce that Larry Peterson will be the
program chair for SOSP 2003.
||SOSP 2001 CD ROM
|SIGOPS members will soon receive a copy of the SOSP 2001 CD ROM.
It will contain proceedings from the past 10 SOSP conferences, as well
as the last three SIGOPS European Workshops. Supplementary information
on papers published in this year's proceedings will also be available in
The SIGOPS-ANNOUNCE mailing list is intended to provide a low-volume channel
that provides operating systems researchers and practitioners with information
about upcoming events or other important announcements. In general, a message
containing a group of such announcements will be sent about once per month
with the subject line "SIGOPS-ANNOUNCE monthly posting". On rare occasions,
announcements of particular interest or urgency will be sent out with a
different subject line, starting with "SIGOPS-ANNOUNCE supplemental posting"
(for readers who wish to use mail filtering programs.) Finally, this mailing
list is made available for use by publicity chairs of SIGOPS-sponsored
conferences and the SIGOPS officers.
