2012 USENIX Annual Technical Conference (ATC ’12)
Gernot Heiser (University of New South Wales) opened ATC by telling us that there had been 230 paper submissions, up by 30% from last year. Forty-one papers were accepted, after three reviewing rounds. Gernot reminded the audience that both OSDI and HotOS were coming up soon. Then Wilson Hsieh (Google) announced the best papers: “Erasure Coding in Windows Azure Storage,” by Cheng Huang et al., and “netmap: A Novel Framework for Fast Packet I/O,” by Luigo Rizzo.
