Call for Papers

The European Conference on Computer Systems (EuroSys) is a premier international forum for presenting computer systems research, broadly construed. EuroSys’14 seeks papers on all areas of computer systems research, including, but not limited to:

  • Cloud computing
  • Database systems
  • Dependable systems
  • Distributed systems
  • File and storage systems
  • Mobile and pervasive systems
  • Networked systems
  • Operating systems
  • Multicore systems
  • Programming-language support and runtime systems
  • Real-time and embedded systems
  • Secure systems, privacy and anonymity preserving systems

Papers will be judged on novelty, significance, correctness, and clarity. We encourage papers that bridge research in different communities. We also welcome experience papers that clearly articulate lessons learnt and papers that refute prior published results. Papers will be provisionally accepted and final acceptance is subject to shepherding by a member of the program committee.

Reviewing will be double-blind. Papers must not identify the authors and authors’ identities will be hidden from the reviewers. Submissions should be 12 pages including everything except the references, plus any number of references. Papers must be formatted using a 10pt font, single spacing (minimum 11pt spacing between lines), two columns with 0.33 inches between columns, and a text box of 7 by 9 inches. Papers that violate the submission guidelines will be automatically rejected regardless of their merit. Accepted papers will be allowed 14 pages in the proceedings, including references. At least one author of an accepted paper will be expected¬†to travel to the conference to present it.

All submissions will be treated as confidential prior to publication. EuroSys applies ACM’s policies for plagiarism, submission confidentiality, reviewer anonymity, and prior and concurrent paper submission. Access to submitted papers is limited to the PC members and external reviewers, whose names will be listed in the conference proceedings. Submissions accompanied by nondisclosure agreement forms will not be considered. Accepted papers will be made available to the public about one week before the conference (authors are free to make their papers available on their personal web pages beforehand).

Authors who are unsure whether or not their submissions meet these guidelines or have specific questions about the guidelines, are welcome to contact the program committee co-chairs, via eurosys-pc-chairs@mpi-sws.org.

In addition to paper presentations, EuroSys’14 will have a poster session. Submissions for posters will open closer to the conference deadline. Accepted papers will automatically qualify for the poster session, and authors will be strongly encouraged to¬†participate.
