ACM SAC 2015 - OS track 2015 : Operating Systems Track of the ACM 30th Symposium On Applied Computing (SAC)
Call For Papers
** Aim and Scope
The purpose of this track is to bring together researchers, designers, and developers who are interested in methodologies for the design and analysis of operating systems and/or applications that are highly adaptive to user needs. In recent years, we have noticed a tremendous growth on the demands for highly-efficient operating systems. At the same time, adaptive applications have also become more and more complex, and it imposes new challenging issues never faced before in this application field. It is thus clear that nowadays the development and design of operating systems must rely, even more than in the recent past, on specific solutions both in the hardware and in the software components. Moreover, the needs to timely tackle changes in the market pushes toward the employment of methodologies to shorten the development time and to drive the evolution of existing products. The solutions to new problems emerging in this setting call for a joint effort from the academics and industry.
The designs of high-performance operating systems and adaptive applications must take into account a wide variety of constraints: Performance, code size, real-time performance, maintainability, energy efficiency, and scalability. This track provides a forum for the presentation of high-quality, original research covering all aspects of operating systems and adaptive applications design, analysis, implementation, evaluation, and case-studies. Solutions might be proposed at different levels of abstractions, making use of an assortment of tools and methodologies. Researchers and practitioners would have a chance to propose new ideas and to compare experimentations. The focus of this track is on the application of both novel and well-known techniques to the operating systems and adaptive applications development.
Major topics of interest include but are not limited to the following:
￭ Operating systems
￭ Virtualization technology
￭ Networking, storage simulation techniques for operating systems
￭ Distributed operating systems or parallel operating systems code
￭ Testing, debugging, profiling, and performance analysis for operating systems
￭ Special-purpose appliances and applications
￭ Fault tolerance and robustness for operating systems
￭ Scheduling and discrete optimization of systems with timing constraints
￭ Schedulability analysis of real-time applications
￭ System Security
￭ Modeling issues and case studies
** Paper Submission
Submissions will be handled in electronic format, using START system via the website: https://www.softconf.com/d/sac2014/
The author(s) name(s) and address(es) must NOT appear in the body of the paper, and self-reference should be in the third person. Only the title should be shown at the first page without the author's information. All papers will be fully refereed and undergo a blind review process by at least three referees. The conference proceedings will be published by ACM. Hence, all accepted papers should be submitted in ACM 2-column camera-ready format for publication in the symposium proceedings. The final version of the paper should not be more than 6 pages long. A set of selected papers, which did not get accepted as full papers, will be accepted as poster papers and will be published as short papers (2-3 pages) in the symposium proceedings.
** Journal Publication of Selected Papers
The extended versions of selected papers from all categories will be considered for publication in the ACM/SIGAPP quarterly Applied Computing Review or one of the other participating SIGs' publications. Selected papers will be recommended for publication in an International Journal as a special SAC2015 section.
Paper registration is required, allowing the inclusion of the paper/poster in the conference proceedings. An author or a proxy attending SAC MUST present the paper: This is a requirement for the paper/poster to be included in the ACM/IEEE digital library. No-show of scheduled papers and posters will result in excluding them from the ACM/IEEE digital library.
** Important Dates
The Operating Systems Track will follow the deadlines suggested by the ACM SAC 2015 conference.
￭ Sep 12, 2014 - Paper submission
￭ Nov 17, 2014 - Author notification
￭ Dec 8, 2014 - Camera-ready copy
