The 15th ACM SIGPLAN/SIGOPS International Conference on Virtual Execution Environments (VEE’19)
co-located with ASPLOS
Providence, Rhode Island, United States
April 13-14, 2019

The International Conference on Virtual Execution Environments (VEE’19) 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. Virtualization plays 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’19 accepts both full-length and short papers. Short papers are limited to half the space of full-length papers. An ideal short paper would express an idea that doesn’t require 12 pages to describe or evaluate. The ideas should be well formed and complete just like those in a full-length paper. Short papers will be held to the same standard as full-length papers in terms of clarity of presentation and evaluation, however, the scope of the work as well as the breadth of the evaluation is expected to be smaller.

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):
– architectural support for virtualization
– compiler and programming language support for virtualization
– managed runtimes and virtual machines
– management technologies for virtual environments
– memory management
– operating system support for virtualization
– performance analysis and debugging for virtual environments
– runtime system support for virtualization
– security and virtual environments
– virtual I/O, storage, and networking
– virtualization in cloud computing
– virtualization support for programs and programmers
– virtualization technologies applied to specific problem domains such as HPC, realtime, and power management
