Authors are invited to submit papers to the 22nd SOSP reporting on original research related to the design, implementation, analysis, evaluation, and deployment of computer systems software. SOSP takes a broad view of the systems area and solicits contributions from many fields of systems practice, including, but not limited to, operating systems, file and storage systems, distributed systems, mobility, security, embedded systems, fault tolerance, system management, peer to peer systems, and virtualization. We also welcome work that explores the interface to related areas such as computer architecture, networking, programming languages and databases. In keeping with SOSP tradition, we will favor work that explores new territory, continues a significant research dialog, or reflects on experience with or measurements of state of the art implementations. Papers of particular merit will be forwarded to ACM Transactions on Computer Systems for possible publication in a special issue.
A good paper will demonstrate that the authors:
- are attacking a significant problem,
- have devised an interesting, compelling solution,
- have demonstrated the practicality and benefits of the solution,
- have drawn appropriate conclusions,
- have clearly described what they have done, and
- have clearly articulated the advances beyond previous work.
Submissions will be judged on originality, significance, interest, clarity, relevance, and correctness. In addition to citing relevant, published work, authors should relate their SOSP submissions to relevant submissions of their own that are simultaneously under review for this or other venues. The SOSP PC reserves the right to ask authors to provide copies of related simultaneously-submitted papers.
Submissions will be done electronically. Detailed instructions for the submission process can be found on the conference Web site, www.sigops.org/sosp/sosp09. Submitted papers must be no longer than fourteen (14) 8.5"x11" or A4 pages, using a 10 point font on 12 point (single spaced) leading, with a maximum text block of 6.5 inches wide by 9 inches deep. The page limit includes everything: references, title page, figures, appendices, etc. Authors must make a good faith effort to anonymize their submissions, and they should not identify themselves either explicitly or by implication (e.g., through the references or acknowledgments). Submissions violating the detailed formatting and anonymization rules on the Web site will not be considered for publication. There will be no extensions for reformatting.
Blind reviewing of full papers will be done by the program committee, with limited use of outside referees. Papers will be provisionally accepted subject to revision and approval by a program committee member acting as a shepherd. On acceptance, authors will be required to sign an ACM copyright release form. Your submission indicates that you agree to this. Papers will be held in full confidence during the reviewing process, but papers accompanied by nondisclosure agreement forms are not acceptable and will be rejected without review. Authors of accepted papers will be expected to supply electronic versions of their papers and encouraged to supply source code and raw data to help others replicate and better understand their results.
Blind reviewing is not intended to inhibit the exchange of early research results. Authors are invited, but not required, to publish a deanonymized version of their paper to a web site for public comment during the review period. Authors are also invited, but not required, to submit their work for review by "shadow" program committees consisting of faculty and students. Faculty wishing to chair a shadow program committee should contact the program chair on or before the deadline for registering abstracts; comments from shadow PC reviewers will be returned to authors by the notification date.
There will be a scholarship program to support student registration and attendance. Details will be posted on the Web site.
Affiliated WorkshopsSOSP 2009 will officially host workshops at the Big Sky venue. The purpose of these workshops is to provide a forum for the exchange of ideas and preliminary results of topics related to SOSP in an interactive environment. We invite proposals for "open" workshops with the intent to draw upon the collective experience, interests and opinions of all SOSP attendees. See the SOSP 2009 web site for further details.

Submissions violating the formatting and anonymization rules will not be considered for publication. There will be no extensions for reformatting.
The instructions are similar in spirit to ones used for other conferences with double-blind reviewing (submissions and reviews are anonymous). If you have any questions, feel free to send email to tom @ cs.washington.edu.
Good luck with your submission!
