SIGOPS-ANNOUNCE monthly posting (1-Sep-2001)
|The objective of this conference is to serve as a forum for the
exchange of ideas among a talented group of international
researchers on advances in the design and performance analysis of
communication networks and distributed systems. The conference
emphasizes modeling, technical advances and unique applications in
the areas of high speed networking, wireless communications,
multimedia applications, computer architecture and distributed,
parallel and mobile computing systems. The structure of the
conference is designed to facilitate collegiality and continuity of
discussion among the conference speakers and attendees on the topics
covered during the week.
|Title:||18th ACM Symposium on Operating Systems Principles (SOSP01)
|Conference:||21-24 October 2001
|Call for participation: http://www.cs.ucsd.edu/sosp01/participate.pdf
|The SIGMETRICS conference solicits papers on the development and
application of state-of- the-art, broadly-applicable analytic,
simulation, and measurement-based performance evaluation
techniques. Of particular interest is work that furthers the
state-of-the-art in performance evaluation methods, or those that
creatively apply previously developed methods to understand or to gain
important insights into key design trade-offs in complex
|Title:||The 2002 World Wide Web Conference
|Conference:||7-11 May 2002
|This prestigious conference organized by the International World
Wide Web Conference Committee (IW3C2) also provides a public forum
for the WWW Consortium (W3C) through the annual W3C track. Topics
include but are not limited to the following: Applications, Browsers
and User Interfaces, Electronic Commerce and Security, Hypermedia,
Languages, Mobility and Wireless Access, Multimedia, Performance,
Searching and Querying, Indexing and Crawling, and Semantic Web.
|Deadline: 12 Nov 2001 (FREENIX track)
Deadline: 19 Nov 2001 (general refereed track)
USENIX is the Advanced Computing Systems Association. For over 25
years, its members have come from a broad community of developers,
researchers, system administrators and engineers with interests
spanning the full range of technology. As the core conference of
this community, the USENIX Annual Technical Conference is the
premier forum for computing professionals to share the results of
their latest and best work, develop new ideas and solutions, and
connect with their colleagues.
|Semantics preservation between source and target program is the
commonly accepted minimum requirement to be ensured by compilers.
The precise meaning, however, is often only implicit. As a rule of
thumb, verification tends to interpret semantics preservation in a
very tight sense, not only but also to simplify the verification
task. Optimization generally prefers a more liberal view in order to
enable more powerful transformations otherwise excluded.
SITES OF THE MONTH
The sites-of-the-month list in the SIGOPS-ANNOUNCE monthly posting
features web sites that OS researchers and practitioners may find
useful. This list depends on contributions from members: if you know
of a site you think other members should know about, please nominate
it by following the instructions at:
This month's site:
Summary: The plan 9 Operating System is now open source and available available for download.

|Title: ||SOSP 2003 Location Solicitation
|SOSP 2001 is just around the corner, and we're starting to think about SOSP 2003! If you have a good idea for the location of SOSP 2003, please contact David
Kotz, SIGOPS chair. European locations might be nice. The more information you can gather about the place, the better: what sort of conference facilities exist? what are the housing options? what are the special features about the site or the surroundings? who are the people who might put significant effort to making SOSP a success at that location? how far is it from major airports? We'll discuss a few locations at the SIGOPS business meeting at SOSP2001.
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.
