  • SREcon22 Americas: SREcon22 Americas
    March 14, 2022March 16, 2022, San Francisco, CA, United States

    Talk and panel proposals due: November 17, 2021 - 11:59 pm

    SREcon22 Americas is the first of three global events in 2022, when we will finally have the opportunity to gather again in-person in several regions worldwide. We approach this first SREcon we'll have in-person as we find a new balance after the disruptions of COVID-19, many of which are ongoing. Our goal is to use this opportunity to bring us together and reflect on how scalable and reliable systems sustained our lives these past two years. Join us in showcasing how scaling expertise has paid off for teleconferencing, education, streaming entertainment, delivery services, telemedicine, and other unexpected demands.

  • USENIX ATC '22: 2022 USENIX Annual Technical Conference
    July 11, 2022July 13, 2022, Carlsbad, CA, United States

    Abstract registrations due: January 7, 2022 - 7:59 am

    The 2022 USENIX Annual Technical Conference (USENIX ATC '22) seeks original, high-quality submissions that improve and further the knowledge of computing systems, with an emphasis on implementations and experimental results. We are interested in systems of all scales, from small embedded mobile devices to data centers and clouds. The scope of USENIX ATC covers all practical aspects related to computer systems, including but not limited to: operating systems; runtime systems; parallel and distributed systems; storage; networking; security and privacy; virtualization; software-hardware interactions; performance evaluation and workload characterization; reliability, availability, and scalability; energy and power management; and bug-finding, tracing, analyzing, and troubleshooting.

    We value submissions more highly if they are accompanied by clearly defined artifacts not previously available, including traces, original data, source code, or tools developed as part of the submitted work. We particularly encourage new ideas and approaches.

    Submissions must contain original unpublished material that is not under review at any other forum, including journals, conferences, and workshops with proceedings. They will be judged on relevance, novelty, technical merit, correctness, and clarity. An idea or a design that the PC committee deems flawed can be grounds for rejection.

  • USENIX Security '22: 31st USENIX Security Symposium
    August 10, 2022August 12, 2022, Boston, MA, United States

    Winter submissions due: February 1, 2022 - 4:59 am

    The USENIX Security Symposium brings together researchers, practitioners, system administrators, system programmers, and others interested in the latest advances in the security and privacy of computer systems and networks. The 31st USENIX Security Symposium will be held August 10–12, 2022, in Boston, MA.

    All researchers are encouraged to submit papers covering novel and scientifically significant practical works in computer security. The Symposium will span three days with a technical program including refereed papers, invited talks, posters, panel discussions, and Birds-of-a-Feather sessions.
