INVITATION FROM THE PRORGRAM CO-CHAIRS
The 7th USENIX Symposium on Operating Systems Design and
Implementation (OSDI '06) continues the conference's tradition of
presenting the best work in the systems area. This year's program
includes 27 papers spanning a broad range of systems technologies
and implementationswork that you, as a systems practitioner,
will find both stimulating and useful. The full program is now
At this year's OSDI, you will hear from and interact with
researchers who are addressing a wide range of important
questions. Sessions include Runtime Reliability Mechanisms, OS
Implementation Strategies, Distributed Storage and Locking,
Program Analysis Techniques, Operating System Structure, and more.
These papers were drawn from a large and highly competitive pool
of submissions, and were selected to highlight novel ideas instead
of incremental work.
OSDI '06 also offers more opportunities to learn about the state
of the art in systems software through posters and short
Work-in-Progress (WiP) presentations on novel ideas in systems
research. We are seeking proposals for posters and WiPS.
