Call For Papers:
3rd Symposium on Networked Systems Design and Implementation (NSDI '06)

May 8-10, 2006
San Jose, California, USA
Sponsored by USENIX, in cooperation with ACM SIGCOMM and ACM SIGOPS
Submissions Deadline: October 10,2005

NSDI '06 focuses on the design principles of large-scale networks and
distributed systems. Systems as diverse as scalable Web services,
peer-to-peer file sharing, sensor nets, and distributed network
measurement share a set of challenges. Progress in any of these areas
requires an understanding of how researchers are addressing the
challenges of large-scale systems in other contexts. Our goal is to
bring together researchers from across the networking and systems
community -- including operating systems, distributed systems, and
computer networking -- to foster cross-disciplinary approaches to our
shared research challenges. NSDI will provide a high-quality,
single-track forum for presenting new results and discussing ideas
that are relevant to these disciplines.

The NSDI '06 Program Committee seeks a broad variety of work that
furthers the knowledge and understanding of the networking and systems
community as a whole, continues a significant research dialog, or
pushes the architectural boundaries of large-scale network
services. We solicit papers describing original, previously
unpublished research. Specific topics of interest include, but are not
limited to:

* Scalable techniques for providing high availability and reliability
* Security and robustness of highly complex systems
* Novel architectural approaches (e.g., for specific application domains)
* Network measurements, workload, and topology characterization
* Autonomous and self-configuring network, system, and overlay management
* Network virtualization and resource management
* Distributed storage, caching, and query optimization
* Network protocols and algorithms for complex distributed systems
* Operating system support for scalable network services
* Application experiences (e.g., in sensor networks, peer-to-peer
systems, overlay networks, pervasive computing, and content distribution)

Also taking place again this year is the NSDI Poster Session. Do you
have interesting work in progress you would like to share? Poster
sessions introduce new or ongoing work. The NSDI audience provides
valuable discussion and feedback. We are particularly interested in
presentations of student work. To submit a poster, please send a
proposal, one page or less, by March 29, 2006, to the poster session
coordinator at . We will send back decisions
by April 17, 2006.

Important Dates:

-- Paper titles and abstracts due: October 10, 2005
-- Full paper submissions due: October 17, 2005
-- Notification of acceptance: January 13, 2006
-- Papers due for shepherding: March 13, 2006
-- Final papers due: March 29, 2006
