  • SREcon23 Americas: SREcon23 Americas
    March 21, 2023March 23, 2023, Santa Clara, CA, United States

    Submissions due: December 1, 2022 - 11:59 pm

    SREcon23 Americas is the first of three global SREcon events in 2023. Join us in-person as we reflect on the role of Site Reliability Engineering (SRE) in a changing world, discuss technical advances and current engineering trends, and dream about SRE in the future. We welcome submissions of talks on a variety of topics including but not limited to the concepts listed in the "Suggested Topics" section found below on this page.

    SRE as a practice (whether you call it SRE or something else) exists not only in technology-focused companies but also in organizations of all sizes and backgrounds. Your insights will help create a meaningful, diverse, and inclusive program for SREcon23 Americas. Conversations are never complete when they focus just on successes; we also encourage talks that focus on lessons learned from failures, incidents, and hard problems.

    We look forward to learning from both new and experienced speakers across SRE and the broader systems engineering space. This year we'd like to have even more speakers from different fields of work and those who haven't presented before. Many of our best talks have come from people with new perspectives to share. At each SREcon globally, we welcome and encourage attendance from all individuals from any country with an emphasis on "in-region" presenters, including people that are often underrepresented in or excluded from technology, including (but certainly not limited to): people of all colors, women, the LGBTQIA+ community, people with disabilities, neurodivergent participants, students, and veterans. Similarly, we welcome participants from diverse professional roles such as QA testers, customer experience/support, security teams, DBAs, network administrators, compliance experts, UX designers, health care professionals, scientists, and economists. Regardless of who you are or the job title you hold, if you are a technologist who faces unique challenges and shares our areas of interest, we encourage you to be a part of SREcon23 Americas.

  • OSDI '23: 17th USENIX Symposium on Operating Systems Design and Implementation
    July 10, 2023July 12, 2023, Boston, MA, United States

    Submissions due: December 6, 2022 - 2:59 pm

    The 17th USENIX Symposium on Operating Systems Design and Implementation seeks to present innovative, exciting research in computer systems. OSDI brings together professionals from academic and industrial backgrounds in a premier forum for discussing the design, implementation, and implications of systems software. OSDI emphasizes innovative research and quantified or insightful experiences in systems design and implementation.

    OSDI takes a broad view of the systems area and solicits contributions from many fields of systems practice, including operating systems, file and storage systems, distributed systems, cloud computing, mobile systems, secure and reliable systems, systems aspects of big data, embedded systems, virtualization, networking as it relates to operating systems, and management and troubleshooting of complex systems. We also welcome work that explores the interface to related areas such as computer architecture, networking, programming languages, analytics, and databases. We encourage contributions with highly original ideas, new approaches, and groundbreaking results.

  • USENIX ATC '23: 2023 USENIX Annual Technical Conference
    July 10, 2023July 12, 2023, Boston, MA, United States

    Submissions due: January 6, 2023 - 7:59 am

    The 2023 USENIX Annual Technical Conference seeks original, high-quality submissions that improve and further the knowledge of computing systems, with an emphasis on implementations and experimental results. We are interested in systems of all scales, from small embedded mobile devices to data centers and clouds. The scope of USENIX ATC covers all practical aspects related to computer systems, including but not limited to: operating systems; runtime systems; parallel and distributed systems; storage; networking; security and privacy; virtualization; software-hardware interactions; performance evaluation and workload characterization; reliability, availability, and scalability; energy and power management; and bug-finding, tracing, analyzing, and troubleshooting.

  • USENIX Security '23: 32nd USENIX Security Symposium
    August 9, 2023August 11, 2023, Anaheim, CA, United States

    Winter submissions due: February 8, 2023 - 3:59 am

    The USENIX Security Symposium brings together researchers, practitioners, system administrators, system programmers, and others interested in the latest advances in the security and privacy of computer systems and networks.

    All researchers are encouraged to submit papers covering novel and scientifically significant practical works in computer security.
