IC2E 2017

Title:5th IEEE International Conference on Cloud Engineering
Abstract Deadline:2016-08-29
Submission Deadline:2016-09-05
Dates:April, 4-7, 2017
Location:Vancouver, Canada
The 5th IEEE International Conference on Cloud Engineering (IC2E) seeks to provide a high-quality and comprehensive forum, where researchers and practitioners can exchange information on engineering principles, enabling technologies, and practical experiences related to cloud computing. By bringing together experts that work on different levels of the cloud stack - systems, storage, networking, platforms, databases, and applications, IC2E offers an end-to-end view on the challenges and technologies in cloud computing, fosters research that addresses the interaction between different layers of the stack, and ultimately helps shape the future of cloud-transformed business and society. We seek high-quality submissions for both a research track and an industrial track, as described in the call for papers below.

DAT '16

Title:Workshop on Data and Algorithmic Transparency
Submission Deadline:2016-09-09
Dates:November 19, 2016
Location:Columbia University, New York, NY
DAT'16 is being organized to bring together researchers and industry practitioners who are interested in increasing understanding and transparency of large-scale data collection, and the systems and algorithms that it powers. We aim to attract attendees from a variety of areas, including networked systems, privacy, security, economics, and HCI. We particularly encourage papers that propose new research directions, have practical impact, or could generate lively debate at the workshop. Accepted papers will be made available on the workshop website; however, the workshop's proceedings can be considered non-archival, meaning contributors are free to publish their work in archival journals or conferences.

Abstract Deadline:2016-09-12
Submission Deadline:2016-09-19
Dates:February 20-22, 2017
Location:Uppsala, Sweden
The International Conference on Embedded Wireless Systems and Networks (EWSN) is a highly selective single-track international conference focusing on premier research results at the intersection of embedded systems and wireless networking - an area of highest relevance for visionary technologies such as the Internet of Things and Cyber-Physical Systems as well as applications such as Industry 4.0, Smart Production, Smart Cities, and Connected Cars.


Title:6th International Conference on Sensor Networks
Submission Deadline:2016-10-07
Dates:February 19-21, 2017
Location:Porto, Portugal
This conference intends to be the meeting point of researchers and practitioners to share experiences and ideas on innovative developments in any aspect of sensor networks, including Hardware of Sensor Networks, Wireless Communication Protocols, Sensor Networks Software and Architectures, Wireless Information Networks, Data Manipulation, Signal Processing, Localization and Object Tracking through Sensor Networks, Obstacles, Applications and Uses. Conference Areas 1. Sensor Networks Software, Architectures and Applications 2. Wireless Sensor Networks 3. Energy and Environment 4. Intelligent Data Analysis and Processing 5. Security and Privacy in Sensor Networks Keynote Lectures Nancy Cam-Winget, Cisco Systems, United States Nirwan Ansari, New Jersey Institute of Technology, United States

Title:22nd ACM International Conference on Architectural Support for Programming Languages and Operating Systems
Submission Deadline:2016-11-21
Dates:April, 8-9, 2017
Location:Xi'an, China
Workshop and tutorial proposals are solicited for ASPLOS-2017, Xi’an,China. Workshops and tutorials will be held on April 8, 2017 (Saturday)and April 9, 2017 (Sunday). Proposals in the interplay between programming languages, computer architecture, operating systems, and user interfaces to deal with power, performance, resilience, and programmer productivity issues in emerging areas such as datacenters and cloud computing, systems based on non-volatile memory technologies, large scale data analysis, smart infrastructure, and extreme scale computing are encouraged. Proposals should be submitted via e-mail to Albert Cohen ( and Shan Lu ( with the subject "ASPLOS2017 Workshop Proposal". Submissions will be acknowledged via e-mail. Feel free to contact Albert and Shan if you have any questions about the suitability of a workshop or tutorial for ASPLOS or for any other related matters.


Title:Childcare at OSDI '16 | Athena Lecturer Award
# Childcare at OSDI '16

USENIX, in cooperation with ACM SIGOPS, is pleased to offer complimentary childcare at OSDI '16. Space is limited. Please indicate the number of children you will bring during the registration process. We will then contact you with details.


# Athena Lecturer Award

The ACM Athena Lecturer Award celebrates women researchers who have made fundamental contributions to Computer Science. Each year ACM honors a preeminent woman computer scientist as the Athena Lecturer. The Athena Lecturer gives a one-hour invited talk at a major ACM conference of her choice. A video of the talk is made available on the ACM website. The award carries a cash prize of $25,000 and includes travel expenses to the conference. Financial support for the Athena Lecturer Award is provided by Google.

Nomination deadline: November 30, 2016


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.
