It is our pleasure to bring you the program for the Third USENIX Symposium on Operating System Design and Implementation. With the help of a fabulous program committee, we have assembled a collection of papers that reflect the identity crisis in which our field finds itself. We received papers from nearly every field of computer systems research: distributed systems, programming tools, language-based systems, databases, I/O systems, file systems, and fault tolerance. However, the resulting program mirrors the core technologies of the operating system business: I/O, file systems, virtual memory, resource management, scheduling, kernels, and distribution.
We look forward to having you join us in New Orleans, February 22-25, to explore these and other important issues for our field.
For the OSDI Program Committee,
