Dear Colleague,

On behalf of the 2008 USENIX Annual Technical Conference program
committee, we request your ideas, proposals, and papers for tutorials,
refereed papers, and posters.

Authors are invited to submit original and innovative papers to the
Refereed Papers Track of the 2008 USENIX Annual Technical Conference.
Papers can be either full papers of at most 14 pages or short
papers of at most 6 pages. Authors are required to submit papers by
11:59 p.m. PST, Monday, January 7, 2008.

In full papers, we seek high-quality submissions that further the
knowledge and understanding of modern computing systems, with an
emphasis on implementations and experimental results. Short papers
should describe early ideas, advocate a controversial position, or
present interesting results that do not require a full-length paper. We
encourage papers that break new ground or present insightful results
based on practical experience.

The USENIX conference has a broad scope. Specific topics of interest
include but are not limited to:

* Architectural interaction
* Deployment experience
* Distributed and parallel systems
* Embedded systems
* Energy/power management
* File and storage systems
* Networking and network services
* Operating systems
* Reliability, availability, and scalability
* Security, privacy, and trust
* System and network management and troubleshooting
* Usage studies and workload characterization
* Virtualization
* Web technology
* Wireless, sensor, and mobile systems

More information on these and other submission guidelines is available
on our Web site:
