Synopsis:
Cloud and Trusted Computing (C&TC 2017) is the 7th International Symposium on Cloud Computing, Trusted Computing and Secure Virtual Infrastructures, organized as a component conference of the OnTheMove Federated Conferences & Workshops. C&TC 2017 will be held in Rhodes, Greece. The conference solicits submissions from both academia and industry presenting novel research in the context of Cloud Computing, Big Data, and IoT, presenting theoretical and practical approaches to cloud, big data, and IoT trust, security, privacy and risk management. The conference will provide a special focus on the intersection between cloud paradigm, big data analytics, and IoT integration, bringing together experts from the three communities to discuss on the vital issues of trust, security, privacy and risk management in Cloud Computing, shedding the light on novel issues and requirements in big data and IoT domains. Potential contributions could cover new approaches, methodologies, protocols, tools, or verification and validation techniques. We also welcome review papers that analyze critically the current status of trust, security, privacy and risk management in the cloud, big data, and IoT. Papers from practitioners who encounter trust, security, privacy, and risk management problems, and seek understanding are finally welcome.

NEW THIS MONTH!

SPIFEC 2017

Title:1st European Workshop on Security and Privacy in Fog and Edge Computing (In conjunction with ESORICS 2017)
Submission Deadline:2017-07-07
Webpage:https://www.nics.uma.es/pub/spifec
Dates:September, 14, 2017
Location:Oslo, Norway
Contact Email:spifec2017@easychair.org
Synopsis:
The main goal of Fog Computing and other related Edge paradigms, such as Multi-Access Edge Computing, is to decentralize the Cloud and bring some of its services closer to the edge of the network, where data are generated and decisions are made. Cloud-enabled edge platforms will be able to cooperate not only with each other but with the cloud, effectively creating a collaborative and federated environment. This paradigm shift will fulfill the needs of novel services, such as augmented reality, that have particularly stringent requirements like extremely low latency. It will also help improve the vision of the Internet of Things by improving its scalability and overall functionality, among other benefits. To enable this vision, a number of platforms and technologies need to securely coexist, including sensors and actuators, edge-deployed systems, software-defined networks, hardware virtualization, data mining mechanisms, etc. However, this paradigm shift calls for new security challenges and opportunities to leverage services for new scenarios and applications. The field of edge computing security is almost unexplored, and demands further attention from the research community and industry in order to unleash the full potential of this paradigm.

Webpage:https://www.asplos2018.org/
Dates:March, 24-28, 2018
Location:Williamsburg, VA
Contact Email:pekhimenko@cs.toronto.edu
Synopsis:
ASPLOS is the premier forum for multidisciplinary systems research spanning computer architecture and hardware, programming languages and compilers, operating systems and networking. The ASPLOS 2018 will be held in Williamsburg, Virginia, a town that combines a rich slice of American Colonial and Revolutionary history with a modern college atmosphere. Like its predecessors, ASPLOS 2018 invites papers on ground-breaking research at the intersection of at least two ASPLOS disciplines: architecture, programming languages, operating systems, and related areas. Non-traditional topics are especially encouraged. The importance of cross-cutting research continues to grow as we grapple with the end of Dennard scaling, the explosion of big data, scales ranging from ultra-low power wearable devices to exascale parallel and cloud computers, the need for sustainability, and increasingly human-centered applications. ASPLOS embraces systems research that directly targets these new problems in innovative ways. The research may target diverse goals, such as performance, energy and thermal efficiency, resiliency, security, and sustainability. The review process will be sensitive to the challenges of multidisciplinary work in emerging areas.

SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENTS

Title:SIGOPS Hall of Fame Award 2017
Summary:
The SIGOPS Hall of Fame Award was instituted in 2005 to recognize the most influential Operating Systems papers that were published at least ten years in the past. Starting in 2016, SIGOPS will select 1-2 papers annually, restricted to papers that appeared, in any form of publication, 10-11 years previously -- specifically, between 1 October in year (X-11) and 30 September in year (X-9). The selection committee for these awards is made up of the program chairs / co-chairs of the SOSP/OSDI conferences which were held within that 10-11 year timeframe. See https://www.sigops.org/award-hof.html for more information.

The decision will be based on a discussion that considers the impact the paper (and more generally of the research described in the paper) has had on the field of operating systems research. The Award committee will prepare a short statement that describes why the paper was selected.

In 2017, operating systems papers that were published between 1 October 2006 and 30 September 2008 are eligible for nomination, and the selection committee consists of Brian Bershad, Frans Kaashoek, and Jeff Mogul. The award winners will be announced at SOSP 2017.

To nominate an eligible paper, please fill out the online form at <https://goo.gl/forms/805r4t0vJuNNhtOI2>. Nominations must be received on or prior to July 31, 2017, in any timezone. You may address questions and comments to the selection committee via HOFnominations (at) sigops.org, but we cannot accept nominations via that email address.
