International Conference on Virtual Execution Environments (VEE'11)
Call for Papers

March 9th-11th, 2011
Newport Beach Marriott Hotel
900 Newport Center Drive
Newport Beach, CA

Virtualization, broadly speaking, is a recognition of the adage that
any problem in computer science can be solved through the introduction
of an additional layer of indirection.  The technique is applied to
modern systems at many interfaces, from hardware (Xen, VMware), to OS
system calls (VServers, Jails), to high-level language run times
(Java, Python).  While these approaches differ dramatically in
implementation, they provide similar benefits and often must tackle
related challenges.

The 2011 ACM SIGPLAN/SIGOPS International Conference on Virtual
Execution Environments brings together researchers across the many
applications of virtualization in today's systems.  We invite original
papers on topics relating to virtualization -- especially those that
will have broad appeal across these approaches.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following
- Design and implementation of the virtualization layer,

- The use of virtualization to provide novel functionality, such
   as high availability, enhanced security and dependability,

- Challenges in applying virtualization in new environments, such
   as unusual architectures, real-time constraints, and very large

- Novel virtualization techniques to support cloud computing,

- Development and debugging for virtual environments, such as
   record/replay debugging and omniscience,

- I/O concerns specific to virtualization,

- Experience reports from deployments of virtualized environments,

- Impact of virtualization on performance models,

In short, the conference is broadly interested in lessons from
virtualization that will apply to a wide range of researchers as
well as the novel use of virtualization techniques to solve
practical problems.

Important Dates:
Abstract Submission   	: October 25, 2010

Notification 		: December 20, 2010
Camera Ready 		: January 17, 2011

Submission Guidelines:

Papers should attack an interesting problem and should clearly
articulate their contribution relative to previous work.  All
submissions should be in the ACM SIGPLAN (9pt) format
(http://acm.org/sigplan/authorInformation.htm) and should be no more
than twelve pages in total length.  Pages should be numbered, and
submissions must be legible when printed in black and white.  Papers
that do not conform to these guidelines may be automatically rejected
without review.

Submitted papers must describe work unpublished in venues with a
formal proceedings, and not currently submitted for publication
elsewhere. See the SIGPLAN republication policy for more details
(http://www.acm.org/sigs/sigplan/republicationpolicy.htm).  Authors of
accepted papers will be required to sign ACM copyright release
forms. Proceedings will be published by ACM Press.

Detailed submission guidelines and instructions are available on the
conference website (http://www.cs.technion.ac.il/~erez/vee11).
