TRIOS: Conference on Timely Results in Operating Systems

The Conference on Timely Results in Operating Systems (TRIOS) is an experimental conference that is being held in conjunction with the SIGOPS Symposium on Operating Systems Principles (SOSP). Like SOSP, TRIOS solicits papers presenting original research results on all aspects of computer systems software. The SOSP conference has an outstanding reputation based, in part, on its low acceptance rate. Many good systems papers are rejected and their publication delayed by months or sometimes years. TRIOS was created as an outlet for such papers to be published in a more timely manner, thereby benefitting the authors and the operating systems community.

Unique Characteristics

  • The conference will be held on the Sunday before SOSP along with the workshops
  • It will accept any submission that meets a moderate standard for acceptability: deals with operating system issues (as broadly defined by the SOSP Call for Papers), presents a novel result, uses sound methodology, provides some evidence of practicality, is readable, and fairly presents related work
  • There is no hard limit on the number of accepted papers.
  • Both full-length and short submissions are welcome; the length of a paper should be commensurate with its contribution. Other lengths and formats, if appropriate, may also be considered.
  • Each paper with be presented by one of the authors; to accommodate all of the accepted papers in a one-day event, the conference may use short presentations or parallel sessions or both.
  • Papers can be submitted directly to the TRIOS conference.
  • Papers that are submitted to SOSP and rejected will, if desired by the authors, be considered for publication in TRIOS; these papers will not be re-reviewed (though in some cases additional reviews may be desired) but rather the TRIOS PC will select papers based on the SOSP reviews. Authors will have the opportunity to provide a rebuttal to their reviews.
