ANNOUNCEMENTS

NSDI 2009

Title:Sixth USENIX Symposium on Networked Systems Design and Implementation (NSDI '09)
Abstract Deadline:2008-10-03
Submission Deadline:2008-10-10
Webpage:http://www.usenix.org/event/nsdi09/
Dates:April, 22-24, 2009
Location:Boston, MA, USA
Contact Email:nsdi09chairs@usenix.org
Synopsis:
NSDI focuses on the design principles and practical evaluation of large-scale networked and distributed systems. Systems as diverse as Internet routing, peer-to-peer and overlay networks, sensor networks, Web-based systems, and 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 communication, distributed systems, and operating systems—to foster a broad approach to addressing our common research challenges.

HotMobile 2009

Title:The Tenth International Workshop on Mobile Computing Systems and Applications
Submission Deadline:2008-10-13
Webpage:http://www.hotmobile.org/2009/
Dates:February 23-24, 2009
Location:Santa Cruz, CA
Contact Email:april.slayden@hp.com
Synopsis:
The Tenth Workshop on Mobile Computing Systems and Applications (HotMobile) continues the series of highly selective, interactive workshops focused on mobile applications, systems, and environments, as well as their underlying state-of-the-art technologies. HotMobile's small workshop format makes it ideal for presenting and discussing new directions or controversial approaches. We solicit submissions of position papers that focus primarily on applications and systems and that propose new directions of research, advocate non-traditional approaches to old (or new) ideas, or generate controversy and discussion. Submissions will be judged based upon originality, technical merit, topical relevance, and likelihood of leading to insightful discussion at the workshop.

NEW THIS MONTH!

Contact Email:hotpar09chairs@usenix.org
Synopsis:
The First USENIX Workshop on Hot Topics in Parallelism (HotPar '09) will bring together researchers and practitioners doing innovative work in the area of parallel computing. Parallel architectures can potentially mitigate the problems of poor energy performance of conventional microprocessors, but this new computer architecture will only be successful if languages, systems, and applications can take advantage of parallel hardware. We request submissions of position papers that propose new directions for research of products in these areas, advocate non-traditional approaches to the problems engendered by parallelism, or potentially generate controversy and discussion.

Synopsis:
SEC-2009 is the 24th in a series of well-established international conferences on Information Security, which are organized annually by TC-11 of IFIP. Papers offering novel and mature research contributions, in any aspect of information security and privacy, are solicited for submission to the conference.

EuroSys'09

Title:European Conference on Computer Systems (EuroSys'09)
Abstract Deadline:2008-10-31
Submission Deadline:2008-11-07
Webpage:http://eurosys.org/2009

Synopsis:
EuroSys'09, the European Conference on Computer Systems, seeks papers on all aspects of computer systems - especially ones that bridge multiple areas. We're looking for papers that report on the design, implementation, evaluation and deployment of systems or research work. We also actively encourage papers about negative results, repetition or refutation of prior results, new ideas, and experiences with ideas or systems. We'll have both regular papers and short ones. We welcome submissions and attendance from all over the world.

CFP: ACM SIGOPS OSR Special Issue

Title:Call for Papers: ACM SIGOPS Operating System Review: Special Issue on the Interaction among the OS, Compilers, and Multicore Processors
Submission Deadline:2008-11-01
Webpage:http://www.cs.virginia.edu/kim/publicity/osr09/
Dates:
Location:
Contact Email:mzahran@acm.org
Synopsis:
The interaction among operating systems, compilers, and multicore processors is becoming more tightly bound and sophisticated. The tremendous advances in process technology are providing architects and microarchitects with many interesting opportunities for making use of the huge transistor budget to enhance performance and increase throughput. However, system software is becoming more complex and difficult to scale. Therefore, a pressing need exists for innovative techniques to redefine the interaction among the three major entities in modern computer systems: the operating system, the compiler, and multicore processors.
