Dear Colleague,

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 implementations—work that you, as a systems practitioner, will find both stimulating and useful. The full program is now available.

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. Click here for more information.

In summary, we believe this year's OSDI features an outstanding program covering the best systems software research and practice.

Please join us at the Red Lion Hotel on Fifth Avenue in Seattle, WA, November 6–8, 2006.

Early bird registration discounts are available. Register by October 16, 2006, to save.
