EuroSys 2008 is organized by EuroSys, the European Chapter of SIGOPS, sponsored by ACM SIGOPS, in cooperation with the British Computer Society (BCS) and Gesellschaft für Informatik. EuroSys welcomes submissions and attendance from all over the world and aims to bring together researchers from different areas of computer systems, who are otherwise spread over multiple conferences.

As a result, EuroSys 2008 will follow the pattern established by the previous EuroSys Conferences, in 2006 and 2007, by seeking papers on all aspects of computer systems. EuroSys 2008 will also include a number of workshops to allow junior and senior members of the systems community to explore leading-edge topics and ideas before they are presented at a conference.

Important dates:

Early Registration:    7th March 2008
End of Registration:    19th March 2008
Workshops / Tutorials:    31st March to 1st April 2008
Conference Proper:    2nd to 4th April 2008

EuroSys 2008 will be held in Glasgow from March 31st to April 4th, 2008. Glasgow is the largest city in Scotland, and as the "Second City" of the British Empire, was once famous for its shipyards and trading activities. The modern city has reinvented itself as a centre of commerce and financial activity, with an enormous wealth of cultural heritage in the form of museums, galleries and architecture. Glasgow is also a gateway for visiting the Scottish Highlands and Western Isles.

The conference will be held in the University of Glasgow, one of the oldest Universities in the United Kingdom (founded in 1451). Highlights of the conference will include: a reception at the City Chambers; a reception and dinner at the Glasgow Science Centre; and a banquet in the University's Bute Hall.

Environmental Impact

International conferences require international travel, and much of this involves air travel which has a substantial environmental impact. It is our intention to offset as much of this impact as possible for EuroSys 2008. We will achieve this in two ways: by contributing to the planting and subsequent management of non-commercial woodland in Scotland; and by funding carbon offsetting through a verified international scheme.
