Busy Signal

To answer those inquiring e-mails: everything is OK, just very, very busy. A lot of administrative stuff:

  • Just finished the reviews for the Performance and Reliability Track of WWW2004. I think Mike Dahlin and Steve Gribble will be able to put together a few interesting sessions.
  • I have to review 33 (!!) papers for Usenix'04, the Usenix main technical conference. These are quite a few papers, and I am sure I will need to solicit some help in getting it done before the January 24. The response to the call for paper was overwhelming with about 50% more submission than the last two years. Good thing is there are a lot of interesting titles on my list. Lots of middleware, virtual machines,  clustering, p2p, and a few web services.
  • Together with Steve Vinoski and Vinny Cahill I will be chairing DOA 2004, the International Symposium on Distributed Objects and Applications. We have put out the CFP and papers will be due mid June.
  • I am also on the PC for ICWS 2004, the 2004 IEEE International Conference on Web Services. The deadline for submitting a paper to this is February 2.
  • I want to finish the proposal for the second Rotor CFP round. The grants are rather small, but I had really great fun in working with these guys, so I'll see whether I can interest them into a follow-up project to cli-grande.
  • Submitted a paper/presentation proposal to XML Europe 2004, to talk about the misconceptions around web-services.

But I have been developing some cool stuff also, more on that when it reaches a more mature level. And Lieberman still has not delivered my laptop, according to them they are waiting for Intel to deliver the 3.2EE CPUs.
