  • SREcon22 Asia/Pacific: SREcon22 Asia/Pacific
    December 7, 2022December 9, 2022, Sydney, Australia

    Submissions due: August 16, 2022 - 3:59 pm

    SREcon22 APAC is the last of the three regional SREcon events in 2022, where we will finally have the opportunity to gather again in person. It also is the first SREcon in Asia/Pacific since June 2019. We are all striving to find a new balance after the disruptions of COVID-19, and look forward to hearing how your teams have adapted.

    SRE as a practice (though perhaps named differently) exists not only in technology-focused companies, but also in organisations of all sizes and backgrounds. Your insights will help create a relevant, diverse, and inclusive program for SREcon22 APAC. Conversations are never complete when they focus just on successes; we encourage talks that focus on lessons learned from failures or hard problems.

    We look forward to learning from speakers across the SRE and systems engineering space. This year we particularly welcome new speakers; many of our best talks have come from people with new perspectives to share and the last few years most certainly has given us all new experiences and stories we can share and from which we can learn.

  • Enigma 2023: Enigma 2023
    January 24, 2023January 26, 2023, Santa Clara, CA, United States

    Submissions due: August 24, 2022 - 11:59 pm

    Enigma centers on a single track of engaging talks covering a wide range of topics in security and privacy. Our goal is to clearly explain emerging threats and defenses in the growing intersection of society and technology, and to foster an intelligent and informed conversation within the community and the world. We view diversity as a key enabler for this goal and actively work to ensure that the Enigma community encourages and welcomes participation from all employment sectors, racial and ethnic backgrounds, nationalities, and genders.

  • NSDI '23: 20th USENIX Symposium on Networked Systems Design and Implementation
    April 17, 2023April 19, 2023, Boston, MA, United States

    Submissions due: September 13, 2022 - 5:59 pm

    NSDI focuses on the design principles, implementation, and practical evaluation of networked and distributed systems. Our goal is to bring together researchers from across the networking and systems community to foster a broad approach to addressing overlapping research challenges.

    NSDI provides a high-quality 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.

  • FAST '23: 21st USENIX Conference on File and Storage Technologies
    February 20, 2023February 23, 2023, Santa Clara, CA, United States

    Submissions due: September 22, 2022 - 11:59 pm

    The 21st USENIX Conference on File and Storage Technologies (FAST '23) 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.
