    Spring paper titles and abstracts due: April 30, 2024 - 8:59 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.

    Submissions due: June 13, 2024 - 4:59 pm

    Last year, we solicited talks on the then new trend of cost and resource pressure: doing more with less in the face of uncertain future growth and revenue for the technology industry. What started as a set of trends is seeming more and more like a new status quo. Funding and revenue are less certain; organisations are pressured to deliver tangible value (financial or otherwise) to stakeholders. In the face of this changing landscape, the nature of SRE work and how that work is justified changes.

    For SREcon24 EMEA, we would like to invite our community to look ahead, and participate by submitting talks with a focus on emerging industry trends such as (and not limited to):

    • The business case for SRE
    • Evolution of the SRE space
    • Attracting, retaining, and nurturing talent
    • Security {and compliance} and SRE
    • SRE and other industries

    Every talk submission is absolutely welcome, as well as areas we have not explored enough in past conferences. Furthermore, apart from this year’s primary areas, we have a keen interest in learning about when crises were effectively averted; and when all the improvements you have done to your systems brought results.

    Please join us in creating an excellent program for SREcon24 EMEA!
