|Title:||Workshop on Power-Aware Computer Systems|
|Dates:||December 5th, 2004|
Babak Falsafi, Carnegie Mellon|
T. N. Vijaykumar, Purdue
The workshop on Power-Aware Computer Systems (PACS'04) will be held in conjunction with the MICRO-37 conference. The motivation behind the workshop is to provide a forum to present issues related to power dissipation to the architecture community. In particular, we will discuss power and power-related issues in computer system design, to help understand and overcome the limitations of existing hardware/software solutions for power reduction. Furthermore, we will also present a forum for examining innovative solutions to the power problem for computer systems at all levels of performance.
Please send your extended abstracts (10 PDF pages) via email to email@example.com by October 8th.
|Title:||Second Symposium on Networked Systems Design and Implementation (NSDI '05))|
|Dates:||May 2-4, 2005|
|Location:||Boston, MA, USA|
|The NSDI conference focuses on the design principles of large-scale networks and distributed systems. Systems as diverse as Internet routing, peer-to-peer file sharing, sensor nets, scalable Web services, and distributed network measurement share a set of challenges. Progress in any of these areas requires an 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 networking, distributed systems, and operating systems -- to foster cross-disciplinary approaches and to address shared research challenges.|
|Title:||International Conference on Measurement & Modeling of Computer Systems (SIGMETRICS '05))|
|Dates:||June 6-10, 2005|
|The ACM 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 computer/communication systems. Topics of interest as well as detailed CFP can be found at: http://www.cse.cuhk.edu.hk/conference/sigmetrics2005/cfp.html|

|Title:||4th International Workshop on Peer-to-Peer Systems|
|Dates:||February, 24-25, 2005|
|Location:||Ithaca, NY, USA|
|IPTPS'05 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. IPTPS'05 will continue and build on the success of the first three IPTPS workshops. The goal of the workshop is to examine peer-to-peer technologies, applications, and systems, and also to identify key research issues and challenges that lie ahead. In the context of this workshop, peer-to-peer systems are characterized as being decentralized, self-organizing distributed systems, in which all or most communication is symmetric.|

|Title:||First workshop on High-Performance, Power-Aware Computing (HP-PAC)|
|Dates:||April, 4, 2005|
|High-performance computing is and has always been performance oriented. However, a consequence of the push towards maximum performance is increased energy consumption, especially at supercomputing centers. Moreover, as peak performance is rarely attained, some of this energy consumption results in little or no performance gain. The main goal of this workshop is to provide a timely forum for the exchange and dissemination of new ideas, techniques, and research in power-aware, high-performance computing. This workshop differs from other power-aware workshops in that it is specifically interested in saving energy in large scale, scientific applications, rather than in small mobile devices.|
|Title:||ACM/SIGOPS Mark Weiser Award|
|CALL FOR NOMINATIONS
The Mark Weiser Award was created in 2001 by ACM SIGOPS, to be given to an individual who has demonstrated creativity and innovation in operating systems research. The recipient must have begun his or her career no earlier than 20 years prior to nomination.
The award is named in honor of Mark Weiser, a computing visionary recognized for his research accomplishments during his career at Xerox PARC. ACM SIGOPS will present a $1000 prize to the recipient, in memory of Mark and his many contributions to SIGOPS and the operating systems community. The award will be given annually at SOSP and OSDI.
The selection committee will choose the recipient based on: "contributions that are highly creative, innovative, and possibly high-risk, in keeping with the visionary spirit of Mark Weiser."
Nominations are due September 1, 2004. Please see
