AsiaCCS 2017

Title:2017 ACM Asia Conference on Computer and Communications Security
Submission Deadline:2016-11-01
Dates:Apr, 2-6, 2017
Location:Abu Dhabi, UAE
Submitted papers must not substantially overlap papers that have been published or that are simultaneously submitted to a journal or a conference with proceedings. All submissions should be appropriately anonymized (i.e., papers should not contain author names or affiliations, or obvious citations). Submissions must be in double-column ACM SIG Proceedings format, and should not exceed 12 pages. Only PDF files will be accepted. Authors of accepted papers must guarantee that their papers will be presented at the conference. At least one author of the paper must be registered at the appropriate full conference rate.


Title:22nd ACM International Conference on Architectural Support for Programming Languages and Operating Systems
Submission Deadline:2016-11-21
Dates:April, 8-9, 2017
Location:Xi'an, China
Workshop and tutorial proposals are solicited for ASPLOS-2017, Xi’an,China. Workshops and tutorials will be held on April 8, 2017 (Saturday)and April 9, 2017 (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. Proposals should be submitted via e-mail to Albert Cohen ( and Shan Lu ( with the subject "ASPLOS2017 Workshop Proposal". Submissions will be acknowledged via e-mail. Feel free to contact Albert and Shan if you have any questions about the suitability of a workshop or tutorial for ASPLOS or for any other related matters.



Title:32nd IFIP TC-11 International Information Security and Privacy Conference
Submission Deadline:2016-12-23
Dates:May, 29-31, 2017
Location:Rome, Italy
The IFIP SEC conference is the flagship event of the International Federation for Information Processing (IFIP) Technical Committee 11 on Security and Privacy Protection in Information Processing Systems (TC-11, Previous SEC conferences were held in Ghent (Belgium) 2016, Hamburg (Germany) 2015, Marrakech (Morroco) 2014, Auckland (New Zealand) 2013, Heraklion (Greece) 2012, Lucerne (Switzerland) 2011, and Brisbane (Australia) 2010. We seek submissions from academia, industry, and government presenting novel research on all theoretical and practical aspects of security and privacy protection in ICT Systems.


BeyondMR 2017

Title:Workshop for Algorithms and Systems for MapReduce and Beyond
Submission Deadline:2017-01-27
Dates:May, 19-19, 2017
Location:Raleigh, NC, USA
Algorithms and Systems for MapReduce and Beyond (BeyondMR) is a workshop for research at the frontier of large-scale computations, with topics ranging from algorithms, to computational models, to the systems themselves. The workshop aims to explore algorithms, computational models, architectures, languages and interfaces for systems that need large-scale parallelization and systems designed to support efficient parallelization and fault tolerance. These include specialized programming and data-management systems based on MapReduce and extensions, graph processing systems, data-intensive workflow and dataflow systems.


Title:Childcare at OSDI '16 | Athena Lecturer Award
# Childcare at OSDI '16

USENIX, in cooperation with ACM SIGOPS, is pleased to offer complimentary childcare at OSDI '16. Space is limited. Please indicate the number of children you will bring during the registration process. We will then contact you with details.


# Athena Lecturer Award

The ACM Athena Lecturer Award celebrates women researchers who have made fundamental contributions to Computer Science. Each year ACM honors a preeminent woman computer scientist as the Athena Lecturer. The Athena Lecturer gives a one-hour invited talk at a major ACM conference of her choice. A video of the talk is made available on the ACM website. The award carries a cash prize of $25,000 and includes travel expenses to the conference. Financial support for the Athena Lecturer Award is provided by Google.

Nomination deadline: November 30, 2016


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.
