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.
