Synopsis:
Virtualization has a central role in modern systems, being a key aspect of system development, operation, and management in a wide range of environments, from mobile computing devices to large-scale data centers. Virtualization techniques are applied at many interfaces: hardware, OS system calls, high-level language run times, and cloud management stacks. While these approaches differ dramatically in implementation, they target similar benefits and often must tackle related challenges. VEE 2013 brings together researchers across the many applications of virtualization in today's systems. We invite original papers on topics relating to virtualization, especially those that will have broad appeal across these approaches.
