HealthTech '15: 2015 USENIX Summit on Health Information TechnologiesAugust 10, 2015, Washington, D.C.
Advances in healthcare technology show great potential to improve the delivery and stem the rising costs of healthcare. However, the rapid development and hasty adoption of new technologies, combined with a complicated regulatory environment, has resulted in a landscape replete with interoperability, safety, and security problems.
HealthTech, formerly HealthSec, is now in its third year with a broader scope designed to encourage the development of new technologies that generally improve the quality and safety of healthcare as well as the access to it. By bringing together researchers, practitioners, and industrial partners, HealthTech aims to provide a forum for cross-disciplinary interactions among the technology, medicine, and policy communities.
The format of HealthTech Summit has evolved as the organizers seek to serve the healthcare IT technical community. This year, rather than soliciting paper submissions, the program committee will put together a series of invited talks and panels, leveraging the advantages of the Washington, D.C. venue to bring in stakeholders from government as well as industry and academia.
Submissions due: June 17, 2015 - 1:00 pm
URES '15: 2015 USENIX Release Engineering SummitNovember 13, 2015, Washington, D.C.
At the third USENIX Release Engineering Summit (URES ‘15), members of the release engineering community will come together to advance the state of release engineering, discuss its problems and solutions, and provide a forum for communication for members of this quickly growing field. We are excited that this year LISA attendees will be able to drop in on talks so we expect a large audience.
URES '15 is looking for relevant and engaging speakers for our event on November 13, 2015, in Washington, D.C. URES brings together people from all areas of release engineering—release engineers, developers, managers, site reliability engineers and others—to identify and help propose solutions for the most difficult problems in release engineering today.
Submissions due: September 4, 2015 - 11:59 pm
NSDI '16: 13th USENIX Symposium on Networked Systems Design and ImplementationMarch 16-18, 2016, Santa Clara, CA
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, single-track 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.
Paper titles and abstracts due: September 17, 2015 - 9:00 pm
FAST '16: 14th USENIX Conference on File and Storage TechnologiesFebruary 22-25, 2016, Santa Clara, CA
The 14th USENIX Conference on File and Storage Technologies (FAST '16) brings together storage-system researchers and practitioners to explore new directions in the design, implementation, evaluation, and deployment of storage systems. The program committee will interpret "storage systems" broadly; everything from low-level storage devices to information management is of interest. The conference will consist of technical presentations including refereed papers, Work-in-Progress (WiP) reports, poster sessions, and tutorials.
FAST accepts both full-length and short papers. Both types of submissions are reviewed to the same standards and differ primarily in the scope of the ideas expressed. Short papers are limited to half the space of full-length papers. The program committee will not accept a full paper on the condition that it is cut down to fit in the short paper page limit, nor will it invite short papers to be extended to full length. Submissions will be considered only in the category in which they are submitted.
Submissions due: September 21, 2015 - 9:00 pm
