Hi folks,

Sorry for the off-topic message, but my guess is that this may be
interesting to many of the readers of this list.

I'm on the program committee for WIESS '02: the second Workshop on
Industrial Experience with Software Systems.  WIESS is a forum which
focuses on bridging the gap between the "industrial" and "research"
communities in systems software.  In some ways, the GNU tools and
their developers have a foot in each world.  I'm certain that many of
the tools developers and users have knowledge which is worth sharing
with others in the community, hence this message.

For more information about WIESS (including paper submission
information), please see the web page:


Submissions are due July 15, 2002, and there will be no extensions.

The conference is being held on December 8, 2002 in Boston, and is
co-located with OSDI.  (OSDI runs from December 9 - December 11.)

As described on the web page, here's the overview of the workshop:

    The goal of the Second Workshop on Industrial Experiences with
    Systems Software (WIESS '02) is to help bridge the gulf between
    industrial experience with systems software (such as operating
    systems, compilers, large applications, embedded systems, etc.)
    and the research community. We're looking for submissions from
    people from industry, reporting on their experiences, successes,
    failures, and needs.  We're also looking for submissions from
    researchers, reporting on their own experiences in relevant areas
    such as technology transfer, collaborations between research and
    industry, etc. Sumbissions could be presented as short papers or
    posters, and the workshop will favor spending time in group
    discussions over lecture-style presentations.

    WIESS is meant to provide a venue for material that would not
    normally be accepted at a conference such as SOSP or OSDI. This
    does not mean that we will be a forum for second-rate research
    papers, or even for first-rate research papers. Rather, we will
    look for interesting submissions that are primarily concerned not
    with research results, but with exploiting, inspiring, or
    directing research.

Thanks, and I hope to see some submissions from y'all!
