IPTPS 2006

Title:5th International Workshop on Peer-to-Peer Systems (IPTPS'06)
Submission Deadline:2005-11-07
Webpage:http://iptps06.cs.ucsb.edu/

Synopsis:
The 5th International Workshop on Peer-to-Peer Systems (IPTPS'06) provides a forum for researchers to discuss the state-of-the-art in peer-to-peer computing and to identify key research challenges in the area. IPTPS'06 will continue to build on the success of the previous workshops. 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 most or all clients also act as servers.

ICDCS 2006

Location:Lisboa, Portugal
Contact Email:ler@di.fc.ul.pt
Synopsis:
The conference provides a forum for engineers and scientists in academia, industry and government to present their latest research findings in any aspects of distributed and parallel computing.

Contact Email:mobisys_pcchairs@acm.org
Synopsis:
MobiSys 2006 seeks to present innovative and significant research on the design, implementation, usage, and evaluation of mobile computing and wireless systems, applications, and services. The conference will be held in early summer in the historic town of Uppsala, Sweden. It builds on the success of the first three conferences held in San Francisco, Boston and Seattle. We seek papers that take a broad systems perspective rather than focus narrowly on low-level components. We value results and insights obtained from working implementations more highly than those obtained solely from simulations.

NEW THIS MONTH!

WMPI 2006

Title:4th Workshop on Memory Performance Issues, conjunction with HPCA
Submission Deadline:2005-12-09
Webpage:http://www.cs.utah.edu/wmpi/2006/
Dates:2/11/2006
Location:Austin, Texas, USA
Contact Email:legion@cs.utah.edu
Synopsis:
WMPI is a one-day workshop that provides a forum for researchers and practitioners from academia and industry to discuss advances in computer technology, architecture, software systems, and algorithms that address the growing disparity between processor and memory/network speeds. Hardware and software mechanisms that address this performance gap are equally welcome. We are particularly interested in new or controversial ideas. Work in early stages of development is encouraged. The workshop will include one or more keynote speakers. The best five to seven papers of this workshop will be published in a special issue of SIGMICRO newsletter.

ECRTS 06

Title:18th EUROMICRO CONFERENCE ON REAL-TIME SYSTEMS
Submission Deadline:2005-12-11
