Call For Papers

General Information

EuroSys 2008, the European Conference on Computer Systems, seeks papers on all aspects of Computer Systems, especially ones crossing traditional divides and addressing:

  • All areas of operating systems and distributed systems
  • Systems aspects of:
    • Continuous media
    • Databases
    • Dependable Computing
    • Distributed Computing
    • Local and distributed storage
    • Management, measurement, monitoring
    • Mobile and pervasive computing
    • Novel uses of information technology
    • Novel user interfaces
    • Parallel and concurrent computing
    • Programming language support
    • Real-time and embedded computing
    • Security
    • Sensor nets and tiny devices
  • Experience with existing systems
  • Reproduction or refutation of previous results
  • Negative results
  • Early ideas

EuroSys’08 welcomes submissions and attendance from all over the world. Papers may report on:

  1. The design, implementation, evaluation and deployment of such systems.
  2. New ideas: papers nominated as “idea” papers will be held to less stringent standards of system evaluation.
  3. Experiences: for papers in this category evaluation is paramount, and novelty less important.
Authors may designate their paper as one of the above, but need not.

To encourage diversity, any single author may submit at most two papers. Papers authored by program committee members are held to a significantly higher standard, and their number in the final programme is severely restricted. Since reviewing is not double blind, authors should include their affiliation information and full, non-anonymized references

Papers are reviewed by the programme committee, with the help of outside referees. Papers will be accepted primarily for their impact on the Systems community, and for bridging gaps between different communities. Novelty, clarity of explanation and thorough evaluation are additional criteria. Acceptance may be provisional, subject to further shepherding by a member of the program committee, before final acceptance.

Submission Details

Papers may not exceed 14 pages double column, including figures and tables, and should use a 10pt font; a latex style file is available from the submissions page. No changes to margins, spacing, or font sizes are allowed from those specified by the style file. Papers that violate the submission guidelines will be automatically rejected without consideration of their merit.

Simultaneous submission of the same work to multiple venues, submission of previously published work, and plagiarism constitute dishonesty and fraud. Authors uncertain whether their submission meets ACM guidelines should contact the program chair.
