EuroSys Doctoral Workshop (EuroDW 2012)

Dejan Kostic (EPFL)

The EuroSys Doctoral Workshop (EuroDW 2012) will provide a forum for PhD students to present their work and receive constructive feedback from experts in the field as well as from peers. Technical presentations will be augmented with general advice and discussions about getting a PhD, doing research, and post-doctoral careers. We invite applications from PhD students at any stage of their doctoral studies, and plan to have about 30 attendees. Selection of the students for oral presentation is based on usefulness for the student by providing feedback, which can be shared by other students.

2nd International Workshop on Cloud Computing Platforms (CloudCP 2012)

Guillaume Pierre (Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam), Valentin Cristea (Politehnica University Bucharest)

Cloud computing is currently on the way to maturing from early prototypes to become a serious platform for production environments. At the same time, however, early adopters complain about serious usability problems as well as insufficient or fluctuating system performance. Even more, different application domains, like Web services or scientific computing, have strongly different requirements to clouds as their computing environments. This workshop is investigating the needs and requirements from different, potential cloud application domains, and especially how cloud computing platforms (IaaS, PaaS, and their integration) can be built in order to meet these requirements. The workshop’s focus is on building suitable and high-performance cloud computing platforms. We aim to bring together researchers and practitioners interested in the technical aspects of cloud computing. The focus of the workshop is on novel, practical, systems-oriented work.

Workshop on Hot Topics in Cloud Data Processing (HotCDP 2012)

Christof Fetzer (TU Dresden), Flavio Junqueira (Yahoo! Research), Peter Pietzuch (Imperial College London)

Processing large data sets in the cloud has been dominated by the map/reduce programming model, originally proposed by Google and widely adopted through the Apache Hadoop implementation. Over the years, developers have identified weaknesses of processing data sets in batches and have proposed alternatives, such as continuous processing of data streams that has led to the development of systems like Yahoo! S4 and Twitter Storm. The cloud ecosystem, however, is rather rich in application requirements. While map/reduce and stream processing together cover a large fraction of the development space, there are still many applications that are better served by different models and systems. The main goal of the Workshop on Hot Topics in Cloud Data Processing (HotCDP) is to foster research in large-scale data processing and gather both researchers and practitioners working on data processing techniques. The venue will favor work on radical alternatives to existing models and new designs to process data in the cloud.

Workshop on Measurement, Privacy, and Mobility (MPM 2012)

Hamed Haddadi (QMUL), Eiko Yoneki (University of Cambridge)

The ever increasing need for our personal data, location, preferences and interests has raised the bar for regulations and techniques to catch up with the privacy and security aspects of such information. In this workshop we aim to discuss systems, methods, policies and techniques that help in profiling, data mining, offering location-based services, while making an attempt in improving privacy preservation. We aim to solicit research papers, work in progress papers and reports from a variety of disciplines, including but not limited to data mining, security, privacy, advertising, epidemics and information dissemination, mobility and location-based data services across academia and industry in order to create a dynamic inter-disciplinary workshop environment.

2nd Workshop on Systems for Future Multi-core Architectures (SFMA 2012)

Derek G. Murray (Microsoft Research), Zachary Anderson (ETHZ)

Future multi-core architectures will present a variety of challenges for system developers, such as non-cache-coherent memory, heterogeneous processing cores and the exploitation of novel architectural features. To achieve high performance on these platforms, application developers will need to exploit parallelism to a much greater extent than before. SFMA\'12 is a forum for researchers in the operating systems, language runtime and virtual machine communities to present and discuss their experiences with the new generation of highly-parallel hardware.

5th Workshop on Social Network Systems (SNS 2012)

Eiko Yoneki (University of Cambridge), Davide Frey (INRIA), Ian Brown (University of Oxford)

The fifth workshop on Social Network Systems (SNS\'12) will gather researchers to discuss novel ideas on the systems issues of online social networks. Online social networks (OSNs) are among the most popular sites on the Web and continue to grow rapidly. The social graph from OSNs provides a basis for communicating, distributing and locating content. The workshop will focus on 1) infrastructure support for social networks (including distributed systems, databases, and storage systems), 2) ways of leveraging social networks in systems design (including managing and online querying of large social graphs), 3) measurement and analysis of existing deployed social networks.

5th European Workshop on System Security (EuroSec 2012)

Thorsten Holz (Ruhr-University Bochum), Sotiris Ioannidis (FORTH-ICS)

The fifth European workshop in the area of systems security (EuroSec) aims to bring together researchers, practitioners, system administrators, system programmers, and others interested in the latest advances in the security of computer systems and networks. The objective of the workshop is to discuss novel, practical, systems-oriented work. EuroSec seeks contributions on all aspects of systems security.

Euro-TM Workshop on Transactional Memory (WTM 2012)

Osman Unsal (Barcelona Supercomputing Center)

The Euro-TM Workshop on Transactional Memory (WTM) aims to feature work-in-progress on all aspects of Transactional Memory (TM). Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, TM theory, tool and debugger support for TM, TM applications, TM-aware compilers, OS/runtime support for contention management and transaction scheduling, and hardware support for TM. The workshop will consist of short presentations and will not have published proceedings to facilitate later submission to other venues.
