Call for Papers
Eighth ACM SIGOPS European Workshop
7-10 September 1998, Sintra, Portugal

to support increasingly sophisticated applications for an ever-widening
range of users. Support for multimedia will be expected, on workstations
of widely differing power, by naive and sophisticated users at work and
at home, with mobility of computers and users' environments. Many components
exist already, others will be created, and with adequate tools and interfaces
these components should be used to build reliable, robust, secure, maintainable
systems to meet the functional and performance requirements of diverse
bodies of users, platforms and environments.
The workshop will focus on the challenge of building support for applications. Appropriate themes are:
Attendance is limited to 60 people, by invitation only. The workshop will be held at the Hotel Tivoli, Sintra, Portugal.
