SOSP Hall of Fame
Call For Nominations (now closed)
SIGOPS is instituting the SOSP Hall of Fame Award. This award recognizes the most influential papers that appeared in SOSP at least ten years in the past.
Nominations will be solicited of the SIGOPS
membership via email.
The award winners will be announced at the SOSP banquet by the current program chair. The program chair will read the statement prepared by the program committee that describes why the paper was selected. The authors of the award winning paper will be given a certificate, naming the paper, the authors, the conference the paper appeared in, and the conference in which the award was made. This certificate will be signed by the program chair and the current president of SIGOPS. A list of the winners of the award will be maintained on the SIGOPS website.
To bootstrap the award, five awards will be given in 2005 and 2007. Afterwards, only one award will be given per conference.
Nominations should take the form of a nominating letter with supporting letters or other relevant documentation. For SOSP-20 these materials should be forwarded to the SOSP program committee chairman (Ken Birman, email email@example.com) prior to August 1, 2005. To minimize the risk of that a nomination will be lost to spam filtering, please use the following subject: “Nomination: SOSP Test of Time Award”. Dr. Birman will acknowledge nominations and can also answer questions.
