21st ACM Symposium on Operating Systems Principles



Call for Works in Progress (WIPs)

October 14-17, 2007
Skamania Lodge
Stevenson, WA



We invite SOSP attendees to participate in a special Works in Progress (WIPs) session in the SOSP technical program. The authors of selected WIPs will have the opportunity to make a five minute presentation (including set-up and Q&A) about their work during the WIP session. SOSP WIPs will be selected in advance on the basis of one-page PDF abstracts, with no fonts smaller than 10 points. Longer submissions will be rejected. Abstracts must be e-mailed to sosp07wips@sosp2007.org, with "SOSP WIP" in the Subject line, by 5:00 PM EDT Monday, August 20, 2007.

WIPs will be selected on the following basis:

1. Submissions must describe new, interesting work, not previously presented.

2. Submissions should represent early work that is not yet ready for submission to a refereed conference or journal.

3. Student submissions meeting the above criteria will be given preference; however, non-students may submit abstracts.


Please provide the following information in your PDF file:

* A title for your work

* author names and affiliations

* note which authors, if any, are students


A single piece of work can be submitted to both the WIP and the poster session. However, decisions will be made independently, and acceptance in one session does not imply acceptance in the other.

The submitting authors will be notified of acceptance or rejection via e-mail by Monday, September 03, 2007. No reviews will be provided. Due to publication schedule constraints, WIPs will not appear in the SOSP Proceedings.

Send any questions about the WIP session to sosp07wips@sosp2007.org
