CFP: Fourth International Workshop on Real Overlays and Distributed Systems (ROADS), in Big Sky, Montana, USA, on October 14th, 2009

Dear colleagues,

Please find attached the CFP for the 4th ROADS workshop co-located with
SOSP'09 (Big Sky, Montana).
Submission deadline is June 15th. Workshop date is October 14th. Web
site: http://roads.mytestbed.net

Please consider submitting to this workshop, whose main focus this year
is on "distributed systems" AND on "tools that help evaluating
distributed systems, such as simulation, emulation and physical
testbeds, and their interaction towards a global evalaution methodology".

The 4th International Workshop on Real Overlays and Distributed Systems
co-located with SOSP'09

June 15, 2009: Paper Submission
July 20, 2009: Notification of Acceptance
Aug 14, 2009: Camera-Ready Paper
Oct 14, 2009: Workshop date
Designing, deploying, and operating services at Internet scale require
new and innovative approaches. The ROADS workshop goal is to bring
together people exploring challenges in building widely distributed
networked systems with those building global-scale facilities to
enable research on future communication networks, with an emphasis on
systems that run on real networks, providing real services to real
users. For this workshop we especially welcome papers that explore
the interaction between simulation (e.g., ModelNet or ns-3), emulation
(e.g., Emulab), and more realistic deployment settings (e.g.,
PlanetLab) to better predict performance or architectural bottlenecks
when scaling up a distributed service on experimental
environments. These services might be existing, widely deployed
systems, new research prototypes, or more permanent services, but
submissions should address the technical and research challenges they
present during the design, deployment, and evaluation phases.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

* Design, implementation, and deployment of new network
* Seamless transition from simulation or emulation environments to
real network substrates/test-beds
* Experiences with deployed systems (e.g., CDNs, online games, IPTV,
P2P, etc.)
* Monitoring and Management of large-scale, federated networked
* Managing, debugging, and diagnosing problems in distributed systems
* Experiment workflow in real network substrates/test-beds

The workshop program will include invited speakers and presentations
of peer-reviewed papers. Papers will be selected based on
originality, likelihood of stimulating a lively discussion, and
technical merit. We encourage submissions of early work containing
novel and interesting ideas. We envision ROADS as a forum where
participants can receive early feedback on the design and
implementation of systems that may later form the core of submissions
to conferences such as SIGCOMM, NSDI, SOSP, OSDI, CoNEXT, MobiCom, or

Submit a 6-page double column paper using 10pt type in PDF format via
the EasyChair login page:

accepted proposals will be made available online before the
workshop. The workshop web site is http://roads.mytestbed.net
