Background This page lists conferences that I try to follow. This list was chosen by asking friends and collegues which conferences they followed and augmenting their responses with the conferences in which some of the more influential papers in my current areas of interest -- systems, networks, and sensor networks -- have appeared. This list is not meant to be exclusionary and instead reflects my own experiences, education, interests, and tastes. If there's something that should be on this, send me an e-mail and I will add it.

Conference Links Links to some popular systems, networking, and related conferences. This table includes the conference name, year, and vintage (edition). Entries preceded by an apostrophe (e.g. '05) indicate a conference that is referred to only by name and year. The other entries (arabic and roman numerals) indicated the vintage.

Conference Details
  1. ASPLOS: International Conference on Architectural Support for Programming Languages and Operating Systems

    A multi-disciplinary conference, cross-fertilizing research in areas of hardware, architecture, compilers, operating systems, networking, and applications.

  2. HotChips: A Symposium on High Performance Chips

    One of the semiconductor industry's leading conferences on high-performance microprocessors and related integrated circuits.

  3. HotNets: Workshop on Hot Topics in Networks

    The goal of the workshop is to promote community-wide discussion of ideas and emerging directions that are not yet mature.

  4. HotOS: Workshop on Hot Topics in Operating Systems

    Present and discuss new ideas about computer systems, propose new directions of research, advocate non-traditional approaches to old (or new) ideas, or generate controversy and discussion.

  5. Infocom: The Conference on Computer Communications

    The major annual conference on computer communications and networking brings researchers and practitioners of every aspect of data communications and networks together.

  6. IPSN: International Symposium on Information Processing in Sensor Networks

    IPSN draws upon many disciplines including signal and image processing, information and coding theory, networking and protocols, distributed algorithms, wireless communications, machine learning, embedded systems design, and data bases and information management.

  7. MobiCom: Annual International Conference on Mobile Computing and Networking

    MobiCom serves as the premier international forum addressing networks, systems, algorithms, and applications that support the symbiosis of mobile computers and wireless networks.

  8. MobiHoc: International Symposium on Mobile Ad Hoc Networking and Computing

    MobiHoc is a series of annual meetings focusing on the latest research in the rapidly growing area of mobile ad hoc networking and computing.

  9. MobiSys: International Conference on Mobile Systems, Applications, and Services

    MobiSys is an exciting new forum for presenting the best cutting-edge research on supporting, enabling, and coping with mobility in systems software, applications, and services.
