Dear Colleague:

We are writing to invite you to NSDI '08, the 5th USENIX Symposium on
Networked Systems Design and Implementation, which will take place April
16-18, 2008, in San Francisco, CA.

http://www.usenix.org/nsdi08/proga

NSDI '08 focuses on the design and implementation principles of
large-scale networks and distributed systems. Our goal is to bring
together researchers from across the systems and networking
communities to foster cross-disciplinary approaches and to address
shared research challenges.

This year's outstanding program includes 30 technical papers carefully
selected from a pool of 174 submissions. These high-quality papers
represent a diverse range of hot research areas including energy, scale,
security, and fault tolerance.

In addition, NSDI '08 will feature a poster session where attendees can
discuss emerging ideas in networked systems design by talking with
leading researchers who are introducing their ongoing work. To submit a
poster, please send a proposal, one page or less, by March 10, 2008, to
nsdi08posters@usenix.org. Krishna Gummadi and Arun Venkataramani, the
poster session chairs, will send back decisions by March 23, 2008.

Please join us at the Holiday Inn Golden Gateway for this inspiring
symposium covering the most innovative networked systems research. We
look forward to seeing you there.

Sincerely,

Jon Crowcroft, University of Cambridge
Mike Dahlin, University of Texas at Austin
