Call for Workshops

Researchers and practitioners are invited to submit proposals for workshops
to be held in conjunction with the EuroSys 2010 conference. The purpose of
workshops is to provide a forum for exchanging opinions, presenting ideas,
and discussing preliminary results in a small and interactive atmosphere.

Proposals should include:

    * Workshop name and a 150 to 200 word abstract describing the workshop,
suitable for the conference Web site.
    * A short summary of the topic, scope and significance of the workshop
including a discussion on the relevance to EuroSys topics. Please include
information about past iterations of the workshop, if any.
    * Information about the procedure for selecting papers plans for
dissemination (for example, special issues of journals, or position
statements distributed to the participants), the expected number of
participants and the planned workshop format.
    * A brief CV of each of the organizers including contact addresses and
an identification of a single primary contact.


The EuroSys organization provides:

    * Link from EuroSys and Workshop web sites.
    * Management of registration for participants.
    * Setup of meeting space, and related equipment.
    * Coffee-breaks and workshop dinner arrangements.

For workshops interested in publishing their proceedings, the EuroSys
organization will provide the following support. Note that workshop
proceedings would not be part of the EuroSys conference proceedings, but
would be published as a separate volume.

    * Collect camera-ready versions of the papers and their copyright forms.
    * Provide support for publishing on the on-site CD.
    * Provide support to obtain an ISBN number.
    * Publish papers in ACM digital library (pending confirmation).

The main responsibility of organizing a workshop goes to the chairperson(s)
of the workshop. The workshop organization must take care of:

    * Coordinating deadlines and acceptance notifications for workshop
papers with the EuroSys Workshop co-chairs.
    * Workshop publicity, call for papers, and submission and review
    * Providing a brief description of the workshop for inclusion on the
EuroSys web page.
    * Scheduling workshop activities in collaboration with the EuroSys local

Important dates

    * Workshop proposals due: October 19, 2009 (11:59am CEST)
    * Acceptance notification: November 7, 2009
    * Date of Workshops: April 13, 2010

Workshop submission

Please send electronic submissions to
workshop_tutorial_eurosys2010 at sigops-france.fr. You can expect a
confirmation on receipt of the proposal. If you do not receive a
confirmation, please resend the proposal.

Call for Papers

EuroSys'11, the European Conference on Computer Systems, seeks papers on all
aspects of computer systems, especially ones that bridge traditionally
disjoint areas. All areas of operating systems and distributed systems are
of interest, including:

    * Systems aspects of:
          o Continuous media
          o Cloud, grid, and internet/web computing
          o Databases, and information and data management
          o Dependable computing and storage
          o Distributed computing
          o Local and distributed storage
          o Management, autonomics, and control
          o Measurement, monitoring, analysis, and diagnostics
          o Mobile, personal, and pervasive computing
          o Novel uses of information technology
          o Novel user interfaces
          o Parallel and concurrent computing
          o Programming-language support
          o Real-time and embedded computing
          o Security
          o Sensor nets and tiny devices
          o Service-oriented architectures
    * Experience with existing systems
    * Reproduction or refutation of previous results
    * Negative results
    * Early ideas

In addition to papers that report on the design, implementation, evaluation
and deployment of systems or research work, we also actively encourage
papers about new ideas, or experiences with ideas or systems. Appropriate
standards will be applied to papers in different categories: for experiences
papers, evaluation and lessons-learned will be more important than novelty.

Papers are reviewed by the program committee, with the help of outside
referees. Papers will be accepted primarily for their impact on the systems
community. Novelty, clarity of explanation, thoroughness of evaluation, and
bridging gaps between different communities are additional criteria.
Acceptance may be provisional, subject to further shepherding by a member of
the program committee before final acceptance.

Reviewing will be double-blind, meaning the authors' identities will be
hidden from the reviewers (note that this is a change in policy to previous
EuroSys conferences). EuroSys applies ACM's policies for plagiarism,
submission confidentiality, reviewer anonymity, and prior and concurrent
paper submission; see
http://www.acm.org/publications/policies/policies-tocfor more details.
Submissions accompanied by nondisclosure agreement forms
will not be considered.

Note that the above does not preclude the submission of a paper that is
derived from a previous short paper or workshop paper, as long as it
provides a significant new contribution (e.g., a more complete evaluation of
an idea) and clearly indicates the nature and extent of the new material in
the submission.

Submissions may not exceed 12 pages double column, including everything
(i.e., figures, tables, references, appendices, etc.), and should use a 10pt
font. A LaTeX style file is available from the submission site. No changes
to margins, spacing, or font sizes are allowed from those specified by the
style file. Papers that violate the submission guidelines will be
automatically rejected without consideration of their merit. Accepted papers
will be allowed 14 pages in the proceedings. At least one author of an
accepted paper will be expected to travel to the conference to present it.

Authors who are unsure whether their submissions might meet these
guidelines, or with specific questions about the guidelines, are welcome to
contact the program committee chair, via eurosys11-pcc at ertos.nicta.com.au.

EuroSys'11 welcomes submissions and attendance from all over the world. To
encourage diversity, any single author may be named on at most three papers.

In order to encourage and aid authors less experienced in writing
competitive systems papers, we offer a pre-submission option. All complete
papers received by the pre-submission deadline (4 weeks before the actual
paper deadline) will, within one week, receive feedback from an experienced
systems researcher and reviewer on how to improve the paper. This feedback
will focus on structure and presentation issues and emphasize improving the
writeup rather than critiquing the research. Pre-reviewers may or may not be
members of the program committee, and may or may not review the final paper
(but are subject to the same confidentiality rules as actual reviewers). As
such, the same standards of double-blind reviewing apply as for the final

In addition to paper presentations, EuroSys'11 will have a poster session.
Submissions for posters will open closer to the conference deadline.
Accepted papers will automatically qualify for the poster session, and
authors will be strongly encouraged to participate. We will offer awards for
the best paper and for the best paper with a student as the primary author.
