|Title: ||SOSP 2007 Women's Workshop -- Call for Participation
In celebration of the 20th anniversary of the SYSTERS electronic forum
that started with women from the systems research community at
SOSP'87, SOSP'07 has initiated a special workshop for women in
computer systems as a prelude to the beginning of the SOSP
conference. The one-day workshop will commence in the late afternoon
on Saturday, Oct. 13 and proceed through Sunday, and is targeted to
women students at the graduate and senior undergraduate levels with
interests in computer systems research. Women involved in systems
research in industry and academia are also welcome to participate.
Through the generous support of CRA-W, NSF, Microsoft, Google, and HP,
we are able to offer a significant number of scholarship awards for
graduate and senior undergraduate women to participate in this
workshop, followed by SOSP attendance. The awards provide an allowance
for travel, shared room accommodation, and registration.
The purpose of this posting in multifold. First, we want the greater
systems community to be aware of the Women's Workshop and encourage
support and participation. Second, for graduate and senior
undergraduate students, we invite and encourage you to attend. The
first step is to apply for one of these scholarships. The deadline for
application is August 15th, and instructions may be found on the SOSP
web site listed below. Third is a request for help from the faculty
mentors out there. We ask you to get in touch with your women
students who may benefit from this opportunity and get them to apply
for scholarships and attend this workshop.

workshop description and tentative program as well as a link to the
scholarship application procedures.
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.
