IWEF 2018

Title:1st International Workshop on Edge and Fog Systems for 5G & Beyond
Submission Deadline:2017-11-02
Dates:15-18 April 2018
Location:Barcelona, Spain
The First International Workshop on Edge and Fog Systems for 5G & Beyond (IWEF) will be held in Barcelona, Spain on April 15, 2018 in conjunction with IEEE WCNC 2018. In addition to Clouds, the Edge and Fog are emerging as defining locations in 5G where much of the network intelligence and service innovation could also be envisioned. The move to the Edge was originally driven by the desire of operators and cloud providers to deliver low latency services and avert inevitable network congestion by keeping locally a huge amount of local traffic. The list of usages and opportunities brought by the Edge and Fog could only grow quickly especially when imagined with network softwarization tools of SDN and NFV. The move to the Edge has also helped the rediscovery of a wealth of dormant assets in the local access network. These dormant assets are essentially contextual information collected from the users, devices, and nodes. Putting this data on offer to application and service providers keen on optimizing and customizing their service delivery to the end customers proved compelling for all stakeholders.


NVMW 2018

Title:9th Non-Volatile Memories Workshop
Submission Deadline:2017-11-27
Dates:March 11-13, 2017
Location:San Diego, CA, USA
The Non-Volatile Memories Workshop to will bring together engineers working on advanced non-volatile storage devices and systems. The workshop facilitates the exchange of insights and knowledge within this broad community of practitioners and fosters new collaborations that can propel the design and application of non-volatile memories. In 2018, the NVMW will present the inaugural Memorable Paper Award (for work from the past year) and the inaugural Persistent Impact Prize (for work more than 5 years old). There is no published proceedings and we accept work new work as well as work that has been published in the last 18 months.


ASPLOS 2018 Student Research Competition

Title:Student Research Competition (SRC) at 23rd International Conference on Architectural Support for Programming Languages and Operating Systems
Submission Deadline:2017-12-08
Dates:March 24th - 28th, 2018
Location:Williamsburg, VA, USA
The 23rd International Conference on Architectural Support for Programming Languages and Operating Systems (ASPLOS) invites participation in the ACM Student Research Competition (SRC). Sponsored by ACM and Microsoft Research, the SRC is a forum for undergraduates and graduate students to share their research results, exchange ideas, and improve their communication skills while competing for prizes. Students accepted to participate in the SRC are entitled to a travel grant (up to $500) to help cover travel expenses.


CNS 2018

Title:IEEE Conference on Communications and Network Security
Submission Deadline:2017-12-20
Dates:May 30-June 1, 2018
Location:Beijing, China
IEEE Conference on Communications and Network Security (IEEE CNS) is a conference series in IEEE Communications Society (ComSoc) core conference portfolio and the only ComSoc conference focusing solely on cybersecurity. IEEE CNS provides a premier forum for security researchers, practitioners, policy makers, and users to exchange ideas, techniques and tools, raise awareness, and share experience related to all practical and theoretical aspects of cybersecurity. Building on the success of the past five years’ conferences, IEEE CNS 2018 seeks original high-quality technical papers from academia, government, and industry. Topics of interest encompass all practical and theoretical aspects of communications and network security, from the physical layer to the network layer to the variety of applications reliant on a secure communication substrate.


e-Energy 2018

Title:9th ACM International Conference on Future Energy Systems
Abstract Deadline:2018-01-15
Submission Deadline:2018-01-22
Dates:June, 12-15, 2018
Location:Karlsruhe, Germany
ACM eEnergy is the premier forum for research at the intersection of computing and communication technologies with energy systems. It has established a strong track record for high-quality research in the application of computing and networked systems to make legacy systems more energy-efficient and in the design, analysis, and development of innovative energy systems. The Ninth International Conference on Future Energy Systems (ACM e-Energy) will be held in Karlsruhe, Germany from the 12th to the 15th of June 2018. By bringing together researchers in a single-track conference designed to offer significant opportunities for personal interaction, it is a major forum for shaping the future of this area.


ROME 2018

Title:6th Workshop on Runtime and Operating Systems for the Many-core Era
Submission Deadline:2018-01-30
Dates:May, 25, 2018
Location:Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada
Parallel processing has become prevalent across the board. In order to continue a performance increase, innovative many-core architectures will be developed. Such systems, equipped with a significant higher number of cores per chip than multicores, pose challenges in both hardware and software design. On the hardware side, on-chip networks, hybrid memory cubes and non-volatile and stacked memory, as well as novel cache-coherence strategies will enrich the current research areas. The ROME workshop is addressed to the new challenges in hardware/software co-design of runtime and operating systems in order to exploit the available performance for high-performance but also for cloud computing.



Title:23rd ACM Symposium on Access Control Models and Technologies
Submission Deadline:2018-02-10
Dates:June 13-15, 2018
Location:The Omni Severin Hotel Indianapolis, USA
The organizing committee of the 23rd ACM Symposium on Access Control Models and Technologies (SACMAT 2018) invites contributions in all aspects of access control. The symposium will provide participants the opportunity to present work at different levels of development, from early work on promising ideas to fully developed technical results as well as system demonstrations.


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.
