Dear Colleague:

We are writing to invite you to NSDI '08, the 5th USENIX Symposium on Networked Systems Design and Implementation, which will take place April 16–18, 2008, in San Francisco, CA.

NSDI '08 focuses on the design and implementation principles of large-scale networks and distributed systems. Our goal is to bring together researchers from across the systems and networking communities to foster cross-disciplinary approaches and to address shared research challenges.

This year's outstanding program includes 30 technical papers carefully selected from a pool of 175 submissions. These high-quality papers represent a diverse range of hot research areas including energy, scale, security, and fault tolerance.

In addition, NSDI '08 will feature a poster session where attendees can discuss emerging ideas in networked systems design by talking with leading researchers who are introducing their ongoing work. To submit a poster, please send a proposal, one page or less, by March 10, 2008, to Krishna Gummadi and Arun Venkataramani, the poster session chairs, will send back decisions by March 23, 2008.

Please join us at the Holiday Inn Golden Gateway for this inspiring symposium covering the most innovative networked systems research. We look forward to seeing you there.

Mike Dahlin, University of Texas at Austin
