Virtualization has a central role in modern systems. It constitutes a key
aspect in a wide range of environments, from small mobile computing devices to
large-scale data centers and computational clouds. Virtualization techniques
encompass the underlying hardware, the operating system, and the runtime
system. Although these layers have different design and implementation
techniques, the fundamental challenges and insights tend to be similar.

VEE’16 brings together researchers and practitioners from different computer
systems domains to interact and share ideas in order to advance the state of
the art of virtualization and broaden its applicability. VEE’16 accepts both
full-length and short papers. Both types of submissions are reviewed to the
same standards and differ primarily in the scope of the ideas expressed. Short
papers are limited to half the space of full-length papers. The program
committee will not accept a full paper on the condition that it is cut down to
fit in a short paper slot, nor will it invite short papers to be extended to
full length. Submissions will be considered only in the category in which they
are submitted.

We invite authors to submit original papers related to virtualization
across all layers of the software stack down to the microarchitectural
level. Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):
– virtualization support for programs and programmers;
– architecture support for virtualization;
– operating system support for virtualization;
– compiler and programming language support for virtualization;
– runtime system support for virtualization;
– virtual I/O, storage, and networking;
– memory management;
– managed runtimes and virtual machines;
– management technologies for virtual environments;
– performance analysis and debugging for virtual environments;
– security and virtual environments;
– virtualization in cloud computing;
– virtualization technologies applied to specific problem domains
– such as HPC, realtime, and power management.
