CALL FOR PARTICIPATION
===================================== Fourth NICTA Software Systems Summer School http://ssrg.nicta.com.au/Events/summer/16 =====================================
Supported by: ANU and UNSW
Over two days, this summer school will feature lectures by international leaders in computer systems from industry and academia, interspersed with short student talks and poster sessions. We will emphasise a friendly and informal setting where students can learn and obtain feedback from experts. Topics include operating systems, hypervisors, virtual machines, databases, compilers, language implementation, memory management and security.
Research students may apply for participation by submitting a summary (of no more than half a page) on their research interests, indicating how it overlaps with the topic of the summer school. They may also indicate that they would like to give a short talk, although the organisers will only select a small number of student presentations. All attending students will be able to present a poster, and are strongly encouraged to use this opportunity to get feedback from world leaders!.
We will also consider submissions from final-stage undergraduate students, post-docs or academic staff, provided they explain the benefits they expect from attendance.Supervisors of attending students are particularly welcome to attend.
All submitted material must fit on a single A4 page.
Attendance is free, but subject to invitation based on the submitted abstract. We will rarely reject an application from a student. Registration includes free lunches and coffee breaks during the summer school, as well as a dinner on the evening of the first day.
A limited amount of travel support will be available for students from outside NSW and the ACT. Students requesting travel support must submit a brief justification with their application. Travel support will only be available for students from Australia and New Zealand, and will not exceed the cheapest airfare from their nearest major airport to Sydney. Funds for this are limited, and we will give priority to students likely to benefit most from the summer school, i.e. students whose research is most aligned with the topic.
The workshop and associated activities will be held in the Computer Science & Engineering building on the UNSW Kensington (main) campus in Sydney.
Abstracts Due: Monday, 23 November, 2015, via the SSSS'16 submission site Notification: Friday, 20 November, 2015
Early applications will be notified earlier to help you with planning.
For participants from outside Sydney we are holding a limited number of inexpensive rooms at a college on campus. These must be booked (and deposit paid) by the end of November. Latecomers will have to find their own accommodations (there are other colleges and backpacker hostels nearby).
