SOSP 2017 Call for Contributions

SOSP'17 Call for Posters

We invite submissions to SOSP's poster track. The poster track will provide an opportunity to present early-stage work and receive feedback from the community. Contributions will be selected by the Poster program committee based on a 1-page abstract plus poster draft submitted through the SOSP Poster submission website:

Topics must fall within the scope of the SOSP call for papers; thought-provoking or controversial work, approaches, or ideas are particularly encouraged. We particularly encourage submissions of early work that is not yet ready for publication at a refereed conference or journal. We especially encourage submissions from students. Please note that accepted SOSP papers are expected to provide a poster.

Submissions will be judged based on novelty and insightfulness of presented work and how well this insight is conveyed in the poster draft. Preference will be given to student posters presenting exciting new results.

Posters must be submitted by September 20, 2017 (23:59:59 UTC). Authors will be notified of the outcome by September 27, 2017 (or earlier). Accepted posters will be shepherded by members of the PC, to ensure maximum quality. The abstract will also be published on the SOSP website, unless authors prefer otherwise. The poster will be presented during a poster session at the conference.

Submissions must include title, author names and affiliations, a note indicating which authors (if any) are students, and an indication of who would present the poster. Please indicate if you can demo a preliminary version of the described system or technique; demos are encouraged but may be constrained by demand, available space, network capacity, or other logistical concerns. Poster abstracts can be at most 1 page long, with a text block of maximum 6.5 x 9 inches (16.5 x 22.9 cm), font size of minimum 10pt, and at least 12pt leading. Each submission should be accompanied by a PDF draft of the proposed poster included as page 2 of the submission. Submissions that do not conform to these requirements will be rejected. Please note that posters corresponding to accepted SOSP papers do not need to provide the 1-page summary, just the poster draft.
