Work In Progress Submission Information

NOTE: The WIP Submission Deadline has been extended until September 29

As in previous years, SOSP 19 will include a "Work in Progress" session on Tuesday afternoon of the symposium. This session is intended to highlight the very latest, not-quite-ready-for-prime-time, research -- including new approaches, new results, partial experiences, etc. WIP presentations slots will be short (5-6 minutes long including Q&A and setup time) and this limit will be vigorously enforced.

Presentations will be selected in advance, based on an extended 1-page abstract describing the main points to be covered in the presentation. The WIP review committee will evaluate submissions according to the following criteria:

  • Contains new, interesting work, not previously presented.
  • Represents early work that is not yet ready for submission to a refereed conference or journal.
  • Student submissions meeting the above criteria will be explicitly favored; however, submissions are not limited to just students.

Submissions should be sent to the WIP Session Chair, Stefan Savage, at savage@cs.ucsd.edu (and please mention "SOSP WIP" in the subject). All submissions should begin with the following information:

   Title: (title of proposed presentation) 
   Name: (your name) 
   E-mail: (your e-mail address) 
   Student: (are you a student? yes/no)

Following this (or as attachment) submitters should include an extended abstract in ASCII or PDF format. This abstract should be no longer than necessary to describe the key ideas and definitly SHOULD NOT EXCEED ONE PAGE!

The deadline for WIP submissions is September 29, 2003 (11:59 P.M. PST). Authors will be notified of acceptance or rejection via e-mail by Monday, October 6.
