Fifth International Workshop on Feedback Control Implementation and Design in Computing Systems and Networks (FeBID 2010)
April 13, 2010,
In conjunction with the ACM SIGOPS EuroSys 2010 conference
FeBID is a series of workshops. In 2010, FeBID is associated with the ACM SIGOPS EuroSys 2010 conference. The workshop aims to bring together researchers, practitioners, system administrators, system programmers, and others interested in the latest advances in the control of computer systems and networks. The focus of the workshop is on novel, practical, systems-oriented work.
FeBID 2010 solicits original research papers on applying feedback control and mathematical optimization techniques to analyzing and designing computing systems, networks, and services, such as those in data centers, enterprise systems, real-time systems, embedded systems, sensor networks, and cyber-physical systems. The workshop offers a unique opportunity for researchers and practitioners to discuss recent and innovative results in the field. It is a forum to exchange ideas and experiences on practical control system design and implementation, and to identify future directions and challenges in aligning feedback control techniques with traditional performance analysis, modeling, and simulation.
FeBID seeks contributions on all aspects of system control. Topics of interest include, but are not limited, to the following:
In accordance with the spirit of the EuroSys conference FeBID also seeks:
FeBID explicitly encourages members of the systems community to explore leading-edge topics and ideas before they are presented at a major conference. Two formats of contributions are welcome: regular papers (6 pages), and position papers (2 pages).
FeBID will feature a Keynote speech on Introduction to Control Theory and Its Application to Computing Systems, given by Joseph L. Hellerstein, Google. This talk provides an introduction to control theory for computer scientists with an emphasis on applications, industry implementations as well as research directions.
Accepted papers will be published in the proceedings of FeBID in the ACM Digital Library.
Furthermore, selected papers from FeBID will be published in a special issue of the ACM Operating Systems Review (OSR), see http://www.sigops.org/osr.html.
