Call for Papers in PDF Format


Authors are required to submit one to three page summaries by Monday, November 29, 1999. No submissions will be accepted after 5:00 PM, Eastern time, Friday, December 3.

All submissions for USENIX FREENIX 2000 Track will be electronic. Please use this web form to send your submission.

You may submit a full paper, however we expect that most submissions will be one to three page summaries of your work to date. Please provide enough detail to let us know what you are doing. In no event should you submit a description in excess of 14 pages.

Specific questions about submissions may be sent to the program chair via email to:

A good submission will clearly demonstrate that the authors:

  • are attacking a significant problem,
  • are actively working on a solution, and
  • have made enough progress to have useful information to report.
In particular, the FREENIX track is not for people that are thinking about doing some project, but have not yet started it. Such talks are better presented in the Work-In-Progress (WIP) session.

Authors will be notified by January 26, 2000. All accepted submissions will be expected to produce a written report for the proceedings by the March 28, 2000 deadline. These reports need not be polished papers as would be submitted to the refereed track, but they should describe work that has been completed as of the time of their submission. The purpose of your paper is to let readers and attendees know what you are doing. Your talk at the conference may describe not only what is in your paper but also the work completed between the time that the paper is submitted and the conference is held. Members of the program committee will help shepherd authors through the writing process prior to final acceptance for publication in the proceedings.

Submitted abstracts may be formatted in any way that you find convenient. However, accepted papers will need to be submitted in the format prescribed by USENIX. If you would like to avoid future formatting changes, you may consult a predefined template which formats according to the USENIX guidelines at Instructions for Authors of Accepted Papers.
