Calls for Papers and Calls for Participation

Publish and Present Your Work at USENIX Conferences

The program committees of the following conferences are seeking submissions. CiteSeer ranks the USENIX Conference Proceedings among the the top ten highest-impact publication venues for computer science. By submitting a paper to a USENIX conference, you have the opportunity to present your work directly to your peers and to share it with a wide audience of readers of the Proceedings. Please see our Conference Submissions Policy.

Please note: All submission deadline times listed below are for the Pacific time zone. See the original CFP for submission deadlines that are in Anywhere on Earth (AoE) or Coordinated Universal Time (UTC).

  • SREcon24 Americas: SREcon24 Americas
    March 18, 2024March 20, 2024, San Francisco, CA, United States

    Submissions due: October 31, 2023 - 11:59 pm

    Join us in San Francisco, CA, USA, as we gather to discuss a variety of Site Reliability Engineering (SRE) topics. This year, our theme will focus on tradeoffs.

    Tradeoffs can occur in many areas. There are engineering and architectural tradeoffs that occur when designing reliable, performant, cost-effective systems. There are tradeoffs related to when deciding what to automate and how. Tradeoffs are made during legacy modernization, when companies need to scale for growth, and when deciding how to best meet business needs under increasing performance, reliability, and cost pressure. Incidents may involve tradeoffs when difficult decisions must be made, sometimes with incomplete information. There are tradeoffs each of us make in our careers as we decide which career path to pursue. In this Call for Participation, we encourage submissions about tradeoffs of all kinds. Additionally, we welcome submissions of talks on a variety of topics, including, but not limited to, the concepts listed in the Suggested Topics section below.

  • OSDI '24: 18th USENIX Symposium on Operating Systems Design and Implementation
    July 10, 2024July 12, 2024, Santa Clara, CA, United States

    Submissions due: November 30, 2023 - 2:59 pm

    The 18th USENIX Symposium on Operating Systems Design and Implementation seeks to present innovative, exciting research in computer systems. OSDI brings together professionals from academic and industrial backgrounds in a premier forum for discussing the design, implementation, and implications of systems software. OSDI emphasizes innovative research and quantified or insightful experiences in systems design and implementation.

    OSDI takes a broad view of the systems area and solicits contributions from many fields of systems practice, including operating systems, file and storage systems, distributed systems, cloud computing, mobile systems, secure and reliable systems, systems aspects of big data, embedded systems, virtualization, networking as it relates to operating systems, and management and troubleshooting of complex systems. We also welcome work that explores the interface to related areas such as computer architecture, networking, programming languages, analytics, and databases. We encourage contributions with highly original ideas, new approaches, and groundbreaking results.

  • USENIX ATC '24: 2024 USENIX Annual Technical Conference
    July 10, 2024July 12, 2024, Santa Clara, CA, United States

    Submissions due: January 9, 2024 - 3:59 pm

    The 2024 USENIX Annual Technical Conference seeks original, high-quality submissions that improve and further the knowledge of computing systems, with an emphasis on implementations and experimental results. We are interested in systems of all scales, from small embedded mobile devices to data centers and clouds. The scope of USENIX ATC covers all practical aspects related to computer systems, including but not limited to: operating systems; runtime systems; parallel and distributed systems; storage; networking; security and privacy; virtualization; software-hardware interactions; performance evaluation and workload characterization; reliability, availability, and scalability; energy and power management; and bug-finding, tracing, analyzing, and troubleshooting.

    We value submissions more highly if they are accompanied by clearly defined artifacts not previously available, including traces, original data, source code, or tools developed as part of the submitted work. We particularly encourage new ideas and approaches.

    Submissions must contain original unpublished material that is not under review at any other forum, including journals, conferences, and workshops with proceedings. They will be judged on relevance, novelty, technical merit, correctness, and clarity. An idea or a design that the PC deems flawed can be grounds for rejection.
