NetDB 2009 (co-located with SOSP 2009)
Title: 5th International Workshop on Networking Meets Databases
Submission Deadline: 2009-06-01
Webpage: http://netdb09.cis.upenn.edu/
Dates: October 14th, 2009
Location: Big Sky, MT

The Workshop on Networking Meets Databases (NetDB 2009) will bring  
together researchers from the systems and networking community and  
the database community. Many current research areas, such as cloud  
computing, datacenter networking, sensor networks, network  
management, or social networks, raise research problems that lie at  
the boundary between these two communities. This workshop's goal is  
to foster an environment in which researchers can discuss ideas that  
will shape and influence these emerging research areas. This year,  
NetDB takes a broad view of what constitutes research relevant to  
both communities. For more information, please visit: http:// 

LADIS 2009
Title: The 3rd International Workshop on Large Scale Distributed  
Systems and Middleware (LADIS 2009)
Submission Deadline: 2009-06-05
Webpage: http://www.cs.cornell.edu/projects/ladis2009
Dates: October, 10-11, 2009
Location: Big Sky Resort, Big Sky, MT, USA
Contact Email: hweather at cs.cornell.edu, Doug.Terry at microsoft.com
LADIS 2009 will bring together researchers and practitioners in the  
fields of distributed systems and middleware to discuss the  
challenges of building massive cloud computing infrastructures. By  
posing research questions in the context of the largest and most- 
demanding real-world systems, LADIS serves to catalyze dialog between  
cloud computing engineers and scalable distributed systems  
researchers, to open the veil of secrecy that has surrounded many  
cloud computing architectures, and to increase the potential impact  
of the best research underway in the systems community.

NSDR 2009
Title: 3rd ACM Workshop on Networked Systems for Developing Regions  
Abstract Deadline: 2009-06-08
Submission Deadline: 2009-06-15
Webpage: http://www.dritte.org/nsdr09
Dates: October 10th 2009
Location: Big Sky, Montana, USA

More than a billion, less fortunate, people on this planet survive on  
less than a dollar a day. Technology can help improve their lives.  
The last decade has seen interest in applying information and  
communication technologies for global development. Research in this  
multidisciplinary area, often dubbed ICTD, encounters massive  
challenges and impacts lives of ordinary poor people. The Workshop on  
Networked Systems for Developing Regions (NSDR) provides a platform  
for technical ICTD research; building and deploying real networks and  
systems in the challenged environments of third world countries.  
NSDR'09 follows up on two successful workshops hosted with SIGCOMM'07  
and SIGCOMM'08.

Title: 4th International Workshop on Real Overlays and Distributed  
Submission Deadline: 2009-06-15
Webpage: http://roads.mytestbed.net
Dates: October, 14, 2009
Location: Big Sky, MT, USA
Contact Email: roads-sosp09 at sophia.inria.fr
The ROADS workshop goal is to bring together people exploring  
challenges in building widely distributed networked systems with  
those building global-scale facilities to enable research on future  
communication networks, with an emphasis on systems that run on real  
networks, providing real services to real users. For this workshop we  
especially welcome papers that explore the interaction between  
simulation (e.g., ModelNet or ns-3), emulation (e.g., Emulab), and  
more realistic deployment settings (e.g., PlanetLab) to better  
predict performance or architectural bottlenecks when scaling up  
distributed service on experimental environments.
