15th USENIX Symposium on Networked Systems Design and Implementation

April 9–11, 2018
Renton, WA, USA
Sponsored by USENIX in cooperation with SIGCOMM and SIGOPS

Applications for student grants and diversity grants are due Wednesday, March 7, 2018.

NSDI focuses on the design principles, implementation, and practical evaluation of networked and distributed systems. The symposium provides a high-quality, single-track forum for presenting results and discussing ideas that further the knowledge and understanding of the networked systems community as a whole, continue a significant research dialog, or push the architectural boundaries of network services.

The program includes three days of technical sessions, a poster session, and evening Birds-of-a-Feather sessions (BoFs).

Applications for student grants and diversity grants are due Wednesday, March 7, 2018. See the Students and Grants page for more information.
