The biannual ACM Symposium on Operating Systems Principles is the world's premier forum for researchers, developers, programmers, vendors and teachers of operating system technology. Academic and industrial participants present research and experience papers that cover the full range of theory and practice.

SOSP-19 continues this tradition with a broad set of high quality, relevant, interesting papers, covering a wide range of topics, platforms, and environments. Because the Symposium attracts attendees with diverse backgrounds, the program includes papers not only in the “traditional core” of the OS field, but also in the interface to these areas and others.

There will be a poster session and a work-in-progress session; in each case presenters will be chosen from brief proposals submitted to the program committee.

In addition to the “regular” SOSP presentations, we will host the presentation of the annual ACM/SIGOPS Mark Weiser Award (nominations are due September 1).

A scholarship program will be available to encourage student attendance. In addition, for the first time ever, SOSP will host the SIGOPS division of the ACM Student Research Competition.

News: SOSP technical sessions were webcast live.

Attendees please note: You must make separate lodging reservations . The conference hotel, The Sagamore, is now booked for the conference dates. Absent cancellations, no additional rooms are available. The hotel has provided us with a list of alternative accommodations. They will provide free shuttle service between these hotels and the Sagamore for SOSP attendees.

We have set up a mailing list at Yahoo! Groups for attendees who are interested in finding roommates or sharing a ride to the conference site. Please post to this list if you already have a room at the Sagamore, and would be willing to share. Note that the conference organizers are not responsible for content posted to this list.
