NEW THIS MONTH!

RAAW 2006

Title:Reconfigurable and Adaptive Architecture Workshop (RAAW 2006)
Submission Deadline:2006-09-08
Webpage:http://www.ws.binghamton.edu/raaw
Dates:Dec 2006
Location:Orlando, Florida, USA (in Conjunction with MICRO 2006)
Contact Email:raaw@binghamton.edu
Synopsis:
The need is raised for an architecture that can adapt to the different requirements of the applications. Adaptive and reconfigurable architectures are also becoming important in the embedded systems area. The functionalities and the performance requirements of embedded systems are increasing. However, the very low energy consumption requirements of such systems have to be maintained. The Reconfigurable and Adaptive Architecture Workshop provides a high-quality forum for computer scientists and engineers to present their latest research findings in the rapidly evolving field of reconfigurable and adaptive architectures

EuroSys 2007

Title:2nd European Conference on Computer Systems (EuroSys'07)
Abstract Deadline:2006-09-09
Submission Deadline:2006-09-16
Webpage:http://www.eurosys.org/2007
Dates:March 21-23, 2007
Location:Lisbon, Portugal
Contact Email:eurosys2007_pc@eurosys.org
Synopsis:
EuroSys 2007 seeks papers on all aspects of computer systems, especially ones that cross the divide between areas. Contributions are welcome from all areas of operating systems and distributed systems. Papers may report on: (1) The design, implementation, evaluation and deployment of such systems. (2) New ideas: a session is reserved for "idea" papers, held to less stringent standards of system evaluation. (3) Experience with earlier concepts: a session is reserved for experience papers, for which depth of evaluation is paramount, and novelty less important. Authors may designate their paper for one of these sessions, but need not to.

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.

SIGMETRICS 2007

Title:ACM International Conference on Measurement and Modeling of Computer Systems 2007 (SIGMETRICS'07)
Abstract Deadline:2006-10-27
Submission Deadline:2006-11-03
Webpage:http://www.cs.cmu.edu/~sigm07/
Dates:June 12-16, 2007
Location:San Diego, CA, USA
Contact Email:harchol (at) cs.cmu.edu
Synopsis:
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 or communication systems.

NEW THIS MONTH!

IPTPS 2007

Title:The 6th International Workshop on Peer-to-Peer Systems
Submission Deadline:2006-11-03
Webpage:http://research.microsoft.com/workshops/IPTPS2007/
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.

NEW THIS MONTH!

SysML07

Title:Second Workshop on Tackling Computer Systems Problems with Machine Learning Techniques
Submission Deadline:2006-11-20
Webpage:http://www.cs.duke.edu/nicl/sysml07/
Dates:April 10, 2006
Location:Cambridge, MA (with NSDI)
Contact Email:chase@cs.duke.edu
Synopsis:
Many researchers in machine learning, systems, and networking have begun to apply techniques from machine learning to help make computer systems and networks more robust and manageable. The SysML workshop brings together researchers working at the intersection of machine learning and systems. We invite authors to submit 6-page position papers or reports of early work. We particularly encourage submissions describing experience with real-world systems and lessons likely to be generally applicable across a range of systems.

HotOS XI

Title:11th Workshop on Hot Topics in Operating Systems (HotOS XI)

Webpage:http://www.usenix.org/hotos07/cfpa/
Dates:May 7-9, 2007
Location:San Diego, CA, USA
Contact Email:hotos07chair@usenix.org
Synopsis:
HotOS XI will bring together people conducting innovative work in the systems area for three days of interaction, with all attendees being active participants and contributors throughout the workshop. Continuing the HotOS tradition, this workshop will be a place to present and discuss new ideas about computer systems and how technological advances and new applications are shaping our computational infrastructure. We request submissions of position papers that propose new directions of research, advocate nontraditional approaches to old (or new) ideas, or generate insightful discussion. We particularly look for position papers containing highly original ideas.

NEW THIS MONTH!

USENIX 2007

Title:USENIX Annual Technical Conference

Synopsis:
Authors are invited to submit original and innovative papers to the General Track (Systems Practice & Experience) of the 2007 USENIX Annual Technical Conference. We seek high-quality submissions that further the knowledge and understanding of modern computing systems, with an emphasis on practical implementations and experimental results. We encourage papers that break new ground or present insightful results based on experience with computer systems. The USENIX conference has a broad scope. Authors may submit regular full papers or 6-page short papers.

ABOUT SIGOPS-ANNOUNCE

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".
