                                      Call for Participation

                              Symposium on Experiences with
              Distributed and Multiprocessor Systems (SEDMS)

                        Sponsored by: The Usenix Association

                                        In association with:
The NSF/Purdue/Florida Software Engineering Research Center

                                        In cooperation with:
                            ACM SIGCOMM and SIGOPS (pending)
IEEE-CS Technical Committees on Distributed Processing, Operating Systems,
                          and Software Engineering (pending)

March 21-22, 1991 Atlanta, GA


The goal of this symposium is to bring together individuals who have built,
are building, or will soon build distributed and multiprocessor systems,
especially operating systems. The symposium will feature full presentations
and (perhaps) panels on aspects of building, testing, debugging, and using
these systems. We will provide a forum for individuals to exchange informa-
tion on their experiences, both good and bad, including experiences with
coding aids, languages, distributed debugging tools, prototyping, reuse of
existing software, performance analysis, and lessons learned from use of
such systems. Extra-long breaks between sessions and work-in-progress
presentations will be provided to facilitate a workshop-like atmosphere dur-
ing the symposium.


TEN copies of each submission or panel proposal should be sent to the pro-
gram committee chair (address below) to arrive no later than 19 November
1990. Submissions of full papers are invited on any topics related to the
theme of the symposium. The committee will give preferential consideration
to submissions describing experiences with actual systems--papers describing
theoretical work or simulations are unlikely to be accepted. Panel proposals
should include a description of the relevance to the goals of the SEDMS, and
the qualifications of the participants suggested.

Important Dates

                                    Submissions due 19 November 1990
                                    Notifications mailed 7 January 1991
                                    Camera ready copy due 30 January 1991
