The 25th Symposium on Operating Systems Principles seeks to present exciting, original research related to the design, implementation, analysis, evaluation, and deployment of computer systems software. SOSP takes a broad view of the systems area and solicits contributions from many fields of systems practice, including, but not limited to, operating systems, file and storage systems, distributed systems, cloud systems, mobile systems, secure systems, embedded systems, dependable systems, system management, and virtualization. We also welcome work that explores the interface to related areas such as computer architecture, networking, programming languages and databases. In keeping with SOSP tradition, we will favor work that explores new territory, continues a significant research dialogue, or reflects on experience with or measurements of state of the art implementations. Papers of particular merit will be forwarded to ACM Transactions on Computer Systems for possible publication.

Papers will be judged on originality, significance, clarity, relevance, and correctness. A good paper will:

To facilitate broad technical discussion, all accepted papers will be made available online in advance of the conference.
