6th EW Summary of Discussions

Summary of discussions

Summary of discussions: choose version:


Every other year since 1984, SIGOPS organizes a European Workshop. The EW traditionally invites new ideas and encourages discussions that do not fit into the more result-oriented conferences such as SOSP or Usenix. Along this tradition, this year's theme is ``Matching Operating Systems to Applications Needs.''

The Program Commitee selected papers, first through an electronic-mail vote, then a physical meeting. Of the 53 submissions, 20 were invited for a formal presentation, on the basis of interest, appropriateness to the workshop topic, technical soundness, an quality of exposition. 20 more were selected to attend the workshop and participate in the discussions. The participants represent both the traditional OS research community and some more unusual application areas. They come from industry and academia, mostly from the US and Europe.
