Call for Papers International Conference on Computing Systems (CompSys-2017) - June 19, 2017

International Conference on Computing Systems (CompSys-2017)
Call for Papers

Monday, June 19 - Wednesday, June 21, 2017
Conference Centre “Landgoed Huize Bergen”, Vught, the Netherlands

GOAL:                                                                                                                                                            After several years of collocation with ICT.OPEN, the Dutch computing systems community has decided to also host an annual conference with a more international scope in computer systems. The goal of this event is to provide a meeting space for research and industry ideas in the area of computing and computer science, for a community we estimate at a few hundred nationally and a few thousand internationally. In this first edition, the conference will focus on community building, providing a forum to discuss ongoing projects for both senior researchers and experienced engineers, and Ph.D. and M.Sc. students in the Netherlands.

The conference lasts three days and focuses on the major research and practice themes related to computing and computer science (see following). We envision a diverse program, from keynotes on advanced topics to project overviews emphasizing the strengths of Dutch and international IT projects, from presentations from Ph.D. and M.Sc. students to tutorials on building a career in computing and computer science.

This first edition is organized as a retreat: consider asking the organizers for a Birds-of-a-Feather meeting or a session on your interests.


Authors are invited to submit work relevant to research themes relevant for computing and computer science, including, but not limited to:
- Databases and web information systems;
- Networking and communication;
- Parallel and distributed systems;
- Engineering of software systems, especially focusing on extra-/non-functional requirements;
- Security applied to computer systems;
- Resource management and scheduling of complex computer systems, clusters, clouds, and datacenters;   
- Algorithms for computer-system operation;
- Programming paradigms and languages of or applied to computer systems;
- Modeling and characterization of existing computer systems, their workloads, and their users;
- Testing, benchmarking, and validation;
- Experimental computer science applied to computer systems;
- Theoretical computer science applied to computer systems.

- April 2: the submission system opens.
- May 8: deadline for submitting your article.
- May 25: author notification, conference registration open.
- June 19-21: the conference takes place in Vught.


CompSys-2017 invites you to submit vision papers, regular scientific work, experience and other industrial reports, and project overviews.

To foster the broadest possible engagement and exchange of ideas, CompSys-2017 does not claim copyright. Authors are invited to submit research and practice summaries, derived from work that has been sent to or has been presented recently at international conferences and workshops.

Papers can be submitted online via the EasyChair conference submission system:

For submission, the PDF format is mandatory. Papers must not exceed 6 pages, and should be typeset in 2 columns, with point size 9 or larger, and with vertical spacing 12 or larger. Consider using the typical IEEE Computer Society or the new ACM formats. The submission must include keywords for the topic(s) covered in the article. The introduction must include at least one paragraph on why the article is relevant to the CompSys-2017 community.

All contributions will be reviewed by the Program Committee, which assigns an accepted contribution to either a poster session or a podium presentation, depending on the advice of the reviewers. All accepted papers will be published in the digital proceedings of the conference (without copyright claim!). This year, up to three best papers will receive an award each, and will be presented in the special Best Papers session!
