  • PEPR '23: 2023 USENIX Conference on Privacy Engineering Practice and Respect

    Submissions due: May 2, 2023 - 11:59 pm

    The 2023 Conference on Privacy Engineering Practice and Respect (PEPR '23) is a single-track conference focused on designing and building products and systems that enhance privacy and respect for both users and society. Our goal is to improve the state of the art and practice in designing for privacy and respect, as well as to foster a deeply knowledgeable community of privacy practitioners and researchers who collaborate toward that goal.

    We view diversity as a key enabler of this goal. Effectively designing for privacy and respect is a challenge in and of itself; attempting this without a range of perspectives is harder still. Thus, we encourage and welcome participation from all employment sectors, racial and ethnic backgrounds, nationalities, genders, disability statuses, ages, and all those other differences which make us richer as humanity.

    PEPR '23 is committed to fostering a respectful and collaborative environment.

    The past few months have brought changes for all of us. In times where we have to do more with less, how do we continue to prioritise, maintain relevance amidst changing demands, and deliver business value in our roles?

    For SREcon23 EMEA, we would like to invite our community to look ahead, and participate by submitting talks with focus on emerging industry trends such as (and not limited to):

    • Security and SRE
    • Resource optimisation
    • Sustainability
    • Nurturing talent
    • Hypergrowth/high demand
    • SRE in non-tech industries
    • Artificial Intelligence and SRE

    Every talk submission is absolutely welcome, as well as areas we have not explored enough in past conferences. Additionally, beyond this year’s main focus, we are particularly interested to hear your stories about when things went well, and how a crisis was averted.

    Submissions due: September 21, 2023 - 11:59 pm

    The 22nd USENIX Conference on File and Storage Technologies (FAST '24) brings together storage-system researchers and practitioners to explore new directions in the design, implementation, evaluation, and deployment of storage systems. The program committee interprets "storage systems" broadly: submissions on low-level storage devices, distributed storage systems, and information management are all of interest. The conference will consist of technical presentations including refereed papers, and poster sessions. As with recent conferences, several papers may be selected for fast tracking to a special section/issue of ACM’s Transaction on Storage journal (ACM TOS).
