Ninth Annual International Conference on
Virtual Execution Environments (VEE 2013)
Houston, Texas, USA, March 16–17 2013

Virtualization has a central role in modern systems, being a key aspect of system development, operation, and management in a wide range of environments, from mobile computing devices to large-scale data centers. Virtualization techniques are applied at many interfaces, from hardware, to OS system calls, to high-level language run times, to cloud management stacks. While these approaches differ dramatically in implementation, they target similar benefits and often must tackle related challenges.

The 2013 ACM SIGPLAN/SIGOPS International Conference on Virtual Execution Environments brings together researchers across the many applications of virtualization in today's systems. We invite original papers on topics relating to virtualization – especially those that will have broad appeal across these approaches.

As in the past few years, VEE will be co-located with ACM ASPLOS, to be held March 16–20, 2013. Note that this year, as in 2012, VEE is happening first, on the Saturday and Sunday prior to the main ASPLOS conference, and concurrent with the ASPLOS workshops.

Registration for VEE is available as an option within the ASPLOS online registration system. Please follow the 'Registration' link on the left hand column. Rates for VEE advance registration are $275/$400/$500 (student, ACM member, ACM non-member respectively, including late registration surcharge). The deadline for early registration, March 1st, has passed but it is still possible to register online in advance or in person on the 16th.

Similarly, hotel arrangements can be made according to the directions on the ASPLOS page.

All VEE attendees are permitted to attend any of the ASPLOS workshops taking place on the 16th and 17th. Since VEE will start a little later than many of those workshops, the first session on Saturday may be a good time to check those out.

Full paper Deadline: Sunday, November 18, 2012 (11:59pm, PST)
