Call for Work In Progress Presentations (WIPs)

We invite SOSP attendees to participate in a special WIP session in the SOSP technical program. The authors of selected WIPs will have the opportunity to make a five minute presentation (including set-up and Q&A) about their work during the WIP session. SOSP WIPs will be selected in advance on the basis of one-page PDF abstracts with no fonts smaller than 10 points. Longer submissions will be rejected.

WIPs will be selected on the following basis:

  1. Submissions must describe new, interesting work, not previously presented. Thought provoking or controversial work, approaches, or ideas are particularly encouraged.
  2. Submissions should represent early work that is not yet ready for submission to a refereed conference or journal.
  3. Student submissions meeting the above criteria will be given preference; however, non-students may submit abstracts.

Please provide the following information in your PDF file:

A single piece of work can be submitted to both the WIP and the poster session. However, decisions will be made independently, and acceptance in one session does not imply acceptance in the other.

Submission Instructions

Please use the submission site to submit your abstract. The submission deadline for abstracts is August 17, 2009 4:59 pm PDT.

The submitting authors will be notified of acceptance or rejection via e-mail by Tuesday, September 01, 2009. No reviews will be provided. Due to publication schedule constraints, WIPs will not appear in the SOSP Proceedings.
