  • SREcon21: SREcon21
    Submissions due: June 30, 2021 - 4:59 pm

    For this SREcon, we want to hear how emerging technologies are influencing, and shaping the world of SRE. We would like to learn about innovations around remote working, scaling, observability, resilient architectures, and security - all of which have been essential to us as an industry. This includes new processes, tools, or patterns that you have been using or developing, as well as things SREs have discovered and learnt about systems and data management through their application. We want to hear how your year of scaling up and out has gone, what is going to make next year easier, and how might we move forward as we continue to grow as a community.

    We are interested in how SREs work along many dimensions but would like to bring extra attention to emerging technologies, facilitation of incident management, machine learning, and new scaling requirements and lessons learned.

  • Enigma 2022: Enigma 2022
    February 1, 2022February 3, 2022, Santa Clara, CA, United States

    Submissions due: August 25, 2021 - 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.

    Enigma is committed to fostering an open, collaborative, and respectful environment. Enigma and USENIX are also dedicated to open science and open conversations, and will make all talk media freely available on the USENIX website.

  • NSDI '22: 19th USENIX Symposium on Networked Systems Design and Implementation
    April 4, 2022April 6, 2022, Renton, WA, United States

    Fall paper titles and abstracts due: September 9, 2021 - 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.

  • FAST '22: 20th USENIX Conference on File and Storage Technologies
    February 21, 2022February 24, 2022, Santa Clara, CA, United States

    Submissions due: September 23, 2021 - 11:59 pm

    The 20th USENIX Conference on File and Storage Technologies (FAST '22) 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, Work-in-Progress (WiP) reports, poster sessions, and tutorials.
