ANNOUNCEMENTS

NSDI 2007

Title:4th Symposium on Networked Systems Design & Implementation (NSDI'07)
Abstract Deadline:2006-10-02
Submission Deadline:2006-10-09
Webpage:http://www.usenix.org/events/nsdi07/
Dates:April 11-13, 2007
Location:Cambridge, MA, USA
Contact Email:nsdi07chairs@usenix.org
Synopsis:
NSDI focuses on the design principles of large-scale networked and distributed computer systems. Systems as diverse as Internet routing, peer-to-peer and overlay networks, sensor networks, Web-based systems, and network measurement infrastructures share a set of common challenges. Progress in any of these areas requires a deep understanding of how researchers are addressing the challenges of large-scale systems in other contexts. Our goal is to bring together researchers from across the networking and systems community -- including computer networks, distributed systems, and operating systems -- to foster a broad approach to addressing our common research challenges.

Dates:February 26-27, 2007
Location:Bellevue, WA, USA
Contact Email:johndo@microsoft.com
Synopsis:
The 6th International Workshop on Peer-to-Peer Systems (IPTPS'07) 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. The goal is to examine peer-to-peer technologies, applications, and systems, and also to identify key research issues and challenges that lie ahead. Each potential participant should submit a position paper that exposes a new problem, advocates a specific solution, or reports on actual experience. Attendance will be limited to participants who are active in the field. For further details, please see the IPTPS 2007 web site.

TOPMoDelS 2007

Title: Workshop on Tools, Operating Systems and Programming Models for Developing Reliable Systems (TOPMoDelS 07)

Synopsis:
Reliability and automatic recovery from faults are paramount in massively parallel and distributed systems. The goal of this workshop is to bring researchers and practitioners together in a setting where they can discuss novel architectures to build reliable distributed systems, the design and implementation of new tools, techniques, programming languages and compilers to increase the reliability and provide recoverability in distributed systems, bug finding and debugging tools in such environments, as well as new developments in formal verification of such environments.
