NEW THIS MONTH!
|Title:||Third International Conference on Mobile Systems, Applications, and Services (MobiSys 2005)|
|Dates:||June 6-8, 2005|
|Location:||Seattle, Washington, USA|
|MobiSys 2005 seeks to present innovative, significant research in the area of mobile and wireless systems. This will be a 2.5-day conference, featuring refereed paper presentations, demos, and poster sessions; it will be co-located with several closely related workshops. This conference builds on the success of the first two MobiSys conferences, held in San Francisco and Boston, which featured many high-caliber research papers and many interesting posters and demonstrations. The conference particularly values the practical experience gained from designing, building, and using mobile systems, applications, and services.|

|Title:||Fifth International Workshop on Software and Performance (WOSP 2005)|
|Dates:||July 11-15, 2005|
|Location:||Palma, Illes Balears, Spain|
|WOSP is a forum for researchers interested in the intersection of Software Engineering and Performance Evaluation. Software Performance Engineering (SPE) research aims to build predictable performance into software by specifying and analysing quantitative behaviour from the early development phases of a system throughout its entire life cycle. This workshop brings together software engineers, developers, performance analysts and modellers who address the challenges of increasing system complexity, rapidly evolving software technologies, short time to market, incomplete documentation, and less than adequate quantitative models and tools. We expect a strong mixture of academic and industrial participation.|

|Title:||20th ACM Symposium on Operating Systems Principles (SOSP'05)|
|Dates:||October 23-26, 2005|
|Location:||The Grand Hotel, Brighton, United Kingdom|
|Authors are invited to submit papers to the 20th SOSP reporting on original research related to the design, implementation, analysis, evaluation, and deployment of operating systems. We seek submissions of high quality that significantly further the knowledge and understanding of the systems community. In keeping with SOSP tradition, we will favor work that explores new territory, continues a significant research dialog, or reflects on experience with practical applications of the community's knowledge. Papers of particular merit will be forwarded to ACM Transactions on Computer Systems for possible publication in a special issue.|
|Title:||New Directions for Operating Systems Review|
Operating Systems Review (OSR) is an informal publication of the ACM Special Interest Group on Operating Systems (SIGOPS). We, the current SIGOPS officers, have been discussing ways to encourage new types of content in OSR.
We would like to propose a set of recurring columns including:
Submissions would still be welcome on any topic of interest to the operating system community. The proposed columns would not limit submissions. They are designed to encourage submission of new types of content and to link content together under unifying themes.
If you are interested in submitting to one of these columns, please indicate this in a cover letter with your submission.
If you have suggestions for content in these categories, suggestions for other categories or questions about a possible submission, you can send mail to email@example.com.

|Title:||SOSP Photo Project|
|The organizers of SOSP-20 are trying to locate "classic" photos from SOSP's of the past. If you have any particularly noteworthy photographs from early SOSP's, and would be willing to contribute digital copies for use in a presentation at the SOSP-20 banquet and inclusion on a web page, please contact Ken Birman, SOSP-20 program chair, email firstname.lastname@example.org.|
