Call for Papers

NEW! Spring Deadline

EuroSys 2023 will adopt a new dual-deadline format -- dates for both deadlines are shown below. Accepted papers from both deadlines will be presented at EuroSys 2023.

The European Conference on Computer Systems (EuroSys) is a premier international forum for presenting computer systems research. EuroSys 2023 seeks papers on all areas of computer systems research, including:

  • Operating systems
  • Distributed systems
  • Cloud computing and datacenter systems
  • File and storage systems
  • Networked systems
  • Language support and runtime systems
  • Systems security and privacy
  • Dependable systems
  • Analysis, testing and verification of systems
  • Database systems and data analytics frameworks
  • Virtualization and virtualized systems
  • Systems for machine learning/machine learning for systems
  • Mobile and pervasive systems
  • Parallelism, concurrency, and multicore systems
  • Real-time, embedded, and cyber-physical systems
  • Systems for emerging hardware

We encourage papers that span multiple topics and communities. Papers will be judged on novelty, significance, correctness, and clarity. The program committee seeks papers that address a significant problem with an interesting and compelling solution whose validity and practicality are clearly demonstrated. A good paper will draw appropriate conclusions, honestly present related prior work, acknowledge its own limitations, and clearly articulate the advances it offers over prior work.

Important dates

Spring deadline

  • Paper titles and abstracts due: Wednesday, May 11, 2022
  • Full paper submissions due: Wednesday, May 18, 2022
  • Notification to authors: Wednesday, Aug 10, 2022
  • Camera-ready deadline: Wednesday, Oct 5, 2022

Fall deadline

  • Paper titles and abstracts due: Wednesday, October 12, 2022
  • Full paper submissions due: Wednesday, October 19, 2022
  • Notification to authors: Wednesday, January 18, 2023
  • Camera-ready deadline: Wednesday, March 15, 2023

All full papers submitted to the Fall deadline will be automatically forwarded to the Shadow PC for additional reviews.

At submission time, via the main submission web site, authors must explicitly opt-out not to forward their papers to the Shadow PC.

In all cases, the reviews produced by the Shadow PC have no effect on the outcome of the main PC, and those will not be shared with the Shadow PC members.

The reviews of the Shadow PC will be released only to the authors for additional feedback following a similar time frame as the main PC.

Two Deadlines

EuroSys '23 offers authors the choice of two submission deadlines. Any paper submitted to one of these deadlines and accepted during the subsequent reviewing period will be presented at the conference and will appear as part of the proceedings. In the meantime, authors are permitted to advertise their papers as accepted by EuroSys, for example listing them on CVs.

A paper submitted at the spring deadline for EuroSys '23 and rejected may not be submitted again until the spring deadline for EuroSys '24. A paper submitted at the fall deadline for EuroSys '23 and rejected may not be submitted again until the fall deadline for EuroSys '24.

Revision

Each paper may be accepted, rejected, or given the option of one-shot revision. If offered a revision option, authors can choose to revise and resubmit the paper for the subsequent EuroSys deadline. This will be the EuroSys ‘23 fall deadline if offered a revision from a spring submission. If offered a revision from the fall submission, authors may revise and resubmit to the subsequent (EuroSys ‘24) spring deadline for publication (if accepted) and presentation at EuroSys ‘24.

Authors offered a revision option will be given detailed instructions about how to re-submit. These will include the list of necessary changes for the paper to be accepted. These may include larger changes than during the shepherding process for accepted papers, e.g. additional results or performance comparisons. The re-submission should include the revised paper, a version of the paper in which the differences from the first submission are clearly marked, and a separate high-level summary of the differences between the two versions.

A revision option is not a guarantee of acceptance. The revised and resubmitted paper will be re-evaluated by the PC. The paper can still be rejected if the revision instructions have not been fully addressed; if new assertions are made without adequate support; or if the revised version unveils significant new concerns that were hidden in the original submission. Revised and resubmitted papers will receive either an accept or a reject decision; there will be no further revision options offered.


Note: at least one full registration fee (member or non-member) will be required for each paper accepted at the plenary conference, even if the presenter is eligible for a student fee.


Resubmission and concurrent submission

Authors submitting to EuroSys must adhere to ACM’s policy on Prior Publication and Simultaneous Submissions. If a revision option is offered and accepted, the paper is still considered under submission to EuroSys and still subject to this policy until it is explicitly withdrawn or rejected. If a revision option is offered and declined, the same policy applies as for a rejection.

If a paper is rejected after a revise-and-resubmit, it may not be submitted again to EuroSys until 11 months after the deadline to which the revised version was submitted.

Submission Instructions

Submission URL:https://eurosys23.hotcrp.com/

Fall Submission URL: https://eurosys23-fall.hotcrp.com/

Anonimity: Reviewing is double-blind, meaning that the authors‘ identities will be hidden from the reviewers and vice versa. Authors must make a good faith effort to anonymize their submissions, and they should not identify themselves either explicitly or by implication (e.g., through the references or acknowledgments). Authors should be listed as:

  • Anonymous Author(s)
  • Submission Id: <Paper-ID> where the <Paper-ID> is the ID assigned after abstract registration.

Use care in referring to your own related work. Do not omit references to your prior work, as this would make it difficult for reviewers to place your submission in its proper context. Instead, reference your past work in the third person, just as you would any other piece of related work. For example, you might say “Our system modifies the XYZ operating system built by Smith et al. [17]”.

If your submission extends a previous workshop paper, or it may relate to a submission currently under review. In these cases, you must still explain the differences between your present submission and the other work, but you should cite the other work anonymously and e-mail the deanonymized work to the PC chairs.

Authors are permitted to post drafts of their submission on e.g. arxiv or as technical reports on their institution’s website. However, the submitted version should have a substantially different title, and a different system/tool name (if it uses one) from the draft version.

Submissions violating the detailed formatting and anonymization rules will not be considered for review. EuroSys applies ACM‘s policies for plagiarism, conflicts of interest, submission confidentiality, reviewer anonymity, and prior and concurrent paper submission. If you are uncertain about how to anonymize your submission, whether or not your submissions meet these guidelines, or have specific questions about the guidelines, please contact the program co-chairs, eurosys23-pc-chairs@eurosys.org, well in advance of the submission deadline.

Conflicts: When registering and submitting your paper, you will need to provide information about conflicts with PC members. Use the following guidelines to determine conflicts:

  • Institution: You are currently employed at the same institution, have been previously employed at the same institution within the past two years, or are going to begin employment at the same institution.
  • Advisor or Collaboration: You have a past or present association as thesis advisor or advisee, or you have a collaboration on a project, publication, grant proposal, or editorship within the past two years (2020 or later), or reasonably expect one within the next year.

More details on the conflict of interest policy can be found at the ACM website.

The PC chairs will review paper conflicts to ensure the integrity of the reviewing process, adding conflicts if necessary. Similarly, if there is no basis for conflicts provided by authors, such conflicts will be removed. Improperly identifying PC members as a conflict in an attempt to avoid having an individual review your paper may lead to the submission being rejected without review. If you have any questions about conflicts, please contact the program co-chairs (eurosys23-pc-chairs@eurosys.org).

Page limit and formatting: Submissions may have at most 12 pages of technical content, including all text, figures, tables, appendices, etc. Bibliographic references are not included in the 12-page limit. Use A4 or US letter paper size, with all text and figures fitting inside a 178 x 229 mm (7 x 9 in) block centered on the page, using two columns separated by ≥8 mm (0.33″) of whitespace. Use ≥10-point font (typeface Times Roman, Linux Libertine, etc.) on ≥12-point (single-spaced) leading for all text including figure and table captions. Graphs and figures should be readable when printed in grayscale, without magnification. All pages should be numbered. Authors are encouraged to hyperlink their references.
Most of these rules are automatically applied when using the official SIGPLAN Latex (\documentclass[sigplan, … ]) or MS Word templates from here. For any paper parameters not defined above, assume that the required value is the one used in these templates.

Any papers that deviate significantly from the formatting instructions will be administratively rejected.

For Latex, we recommend you use (where <PAPER_ID> is the paper ID you received after abstract registration):

\documentclass[sigplan,review,anonymous]{acmart}
\acmSubmissionID{<PAPER_ID>}
\renewcommand\footnotetextcopyrightpermission[1]{}
% Optional: Remove the ACM reference between the abstract and the main text.
\settopmatter{printfolios=true,printacmref=false}
% Optional: Comment out the CCS concepts and keywords.
...

Camera-ready instructions

Rights forms:: In your paper’s HotCRP page (https://eurosys23.hotcrp.com/) you will find a link to the ACM copyright form. Once completed, ACM will send you the information and Latex directives (DOI, ISBN, etc.) needed to complete the camera-ready version of your paper.

Camera-ready format: You should use the acmart document class (https://www.acm.org/publications/proceedings-template, the same as for submission), as follows:

\documentclass[sigplan,10pt]{acmart}
Make sure to fill in all the metadata required by the template, including CCS concepts, keywords, and rights information that you will receive once you complete the ACM rights form. These are the ACM Reference Format and rights management text, which appear on the first page, and the conference information, which appears on the page header.

There should be no page numbers. It is recommended to balance the columns on the last page.

You’ll receive the instruction regarding some Latex directives (\setcopyright, \acmConference, \acmDOI, etc.) after completing the copyright form.

All accepted papers can use up to 2 additional pages for the camera-ready version, for a final limit of 14 pages, references not included. Papers that successfully completed the Artifact Evaluation process can use up to 2 further additional pages, as an ‘Artifact Appendix’, to document the artifacts. Any badges awarded as part of the Artifact Evaluation process will be automatically added after the camera-ready submission.

Note that Type 1 fonts (scalable) should be used, not Type 3 (bit-mapped), and that all fonts must be embedded. Type and embedding of fonts can be checked with various tools including “pdffonts”. Make sure that the PDF is searchable by testing the search function in a PDF reader.

Uploading final versions: The final version of your paper should be uploaded through HotCRP: https://eurosys23.hotcrp.com/
