1. ANNOUNCEMENTS

ASPLOS 2016 Workshops

Title:Call For Workshop Proposals - ASPLOS'16 (International Conference on Architectural Support for Programming Languages and Operating Systems)
Submission Deadline:2015-11-17
Webpage:http://www.ece.cmu.edu/calcm/asplos2016/
Dates:April, 2-3, 2016
Location:Atlanta, GA, USA
Contact Email:chjung@cs.vt.edu
Synopsis:
Workshop proposals are solicited for ASPLOS-2016, Atlanta, GA. Tutorials will be held on April 2, 2016 (Saturday) and April 3, 2016 (Sunday). Proposals in the interplay between programming languages, computer architecture, operating systems, and user interfaces to deal with power, performance, resilience, and programmer productivity issues in emerging areas such as datacenters and cloud computing, systems based on non-volatile memory technologies, large scale data analysis, smart infrastructure, and extreme scale computing are encouraged.

ASPLOS 2016 Tutorials

Title:Call For Tutorial Proposals - ASPLOS'16 (International Conference on Architectural Support for Programming Languages and Operating Systems)
Submission Deadline:2015-11-17
Webpage:http://www.ece.cmu.edu/calcm/asplos2016/
Dates:April, 2-3, 2016
Location:Atlanta, GA, USA
Contact Email:chjung@cs.vt.edu
Synopsis:
Tutorial proposals are solicited for ASPLOS-2016, Atlanta, GA. Tutorials will be held on April 2, 2016 (Saturday) and April 3, 2016 (Sunday). Proposals for both half- and full-day tutorials are solicited on any topic that is relevant to the ASPLOS audience. Tutorials that focus on tools and techniques that enable research across layers of the computational stack are strongly encouraged. In previous years, tutorials seeking to achieve any of the following goals have been particularly successful:
  • Describe an important piece of research infrastructure.
  • Educate the community on an emerging topic.

NVMW 2016

Title:7th Annual Non-Volatile Memories Workshop
Submission Deadline:2015-11-20
Webpage:http://nvmw.ucsd.edu
Dates:March, 6-8, 2016
Location:San Diego, CA, USA
Contact Email:swanson@cs.ucsd.edu
Synopsis:
The 7th Annual Non-Volatile Memories Workshop (NVMW 2016) provides a unique showcase for outstanding research on solid state, non-volatile memories, including devices, data encoding, systems architecture, and applications. The organizing committee is soliciting presentations on any topic related to non-volatile, solid state memories, including:
  • Characterization of commercial or experimental memory devices.
  • Advances in non-volatile memory-based storage systems.
  • Operating system and file system designs for non-volatile memories.
  • Security and reliability of solid-state storage systems.
  • Non-volatile memories applications such as databases, NoSQL, and big-data systems.
Workshop submissions should be in the form of a 2-page presentation abstract.

In addition to research papers, SYSTOR hosts distinguished keynote speakers, highlighted papers from recent top conferences, a poster session, and social and cultural activities. SYSTOR 2016 will be held in Haifa from June 6 to 8, 2016.

2. ABOUT SIGOPS-ANNOUNCE

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.
