USENIX Symposium on Networked Systems Design & Implementation
The NSDI conference focuses on the design principles of large-scale networks and distributed systems. Systems as diverse as Internet routing, peer-to-peer file sharing, sensor nets, scalable Web services, and distributed network measurement share a set of challenges. Progress in any of these areas requires an understanding of how researchers are addressing the challenges of large-scale systems in other contexts. Our goal is to bring together researchers from across the networking and systems community---including computer networking, distributed systems, and operating systemsâto foster cross-disciplinary approaches and to address shared research challenges.
Papers are reviewed by a 20-member TPC. Papers are 15 pages long, double-blind reviewed.
The meeting is 2.5 days, and attendance is open. The meeting currently alternates between US East Coast and US West coast, and occurs yearly in the spring.
NSDI will provide a high-quality, single-track forum for presenting new results and discussing ideas that affect these disciplines. We seek a broad variety of work that furthers the knowledge and understanding of the networking and systems community as a whole, continues a significant research dialogue, or pushes the architectural boundaries of large-scale network services. We solicit papers describing original, previously unpublished research. Specific topics of interest include but are not limited to:
