Dear Colleague:

The 5th USENIX Symposium on Networked Systems Design and Implementation
(NSDI '08) Program Committee would like to remind you that the deadline to
contribute to the refereed papers is quickly approaching. Paper titles
and abstracts
are due October 2, 2007.

NSDI focuses on the design principles and practical evaluation of
large-scale networked and distributed systems. Systems as diverse as
Internet routing, peer-to-peer and overlay networks, sensor networks,
Web-based systems, and measurement infrastructures share a set of common
challenges. Progress in any of these areas requires a deep understanding
of how researchers are addressing the challenges of large-scale systems
in other contexts. Our goal is to bring together researchers from across
the networking and systems community--including communication,
distributed systems, and operating systems--to foster a broad approach
to addressing our common research challenges.

The Program Committee seeks a broad variety of work that furthers the
knowledge and understanding of the networked systems community as a
whole, continues a significant research dialog, or pushes the
architectural boundaries of large-scale network services. We solicit
papers describing original and previously unpublished research. Specific
topics of interest include but are not limited to:

* Novel architectures for communications systems
* Mobility and wireless system architecture challenges
* Sensor networking and other energy-constrained systems
* Novel operating system support for networked systems
* Virtualization and resource management for networked systems
* Highly available and reliable networked systems
* Security and resilience of networked systems
* Overlays and peer-to-peer systems
* Distributed storage, caching, and query processing
* Federated, autonomous, and self-configuring networked systems
* Large-scale networked systems testbeds, design, and evaluation
* Network measurements, workload, and topology characterization
* Managing, debugging, and diagnosing problems in networked systems
* Practical protocols and algorithms for networked systems
* Application experiences based on networked systems

Important Dates:
Paper titles and abstracts due: October 2, 2007
Complete paper submissions due: October 9, 2007
Notification of acceptance: December 21, 2007
Papers due for shepherding: January 25, 2008
Final papers due: February 19, 2008

The 5th USENIX Symposium on Networked Systems Design and Implementation
(NSDI '08) will be held April 16-18, 2008, in San Francisco, CA, USA.

The symposium will consist of two and a half days of technical
presentations, including refereed papers. Awards will be given for the
best paper and the best paper for which a student is the lead author.

We look forward to receiving your submissions!
