Eighth Annual International Conference on
Virtual Execution Environments (VEE 2012)
London, UK, March 3–4 2012

Virtualization has a central role on modern systems, nowadays being a key aspect of how systems are developed, executed, and managed in environments ranging from mobile computing devices to large-scale data centers. Virtualization techniques are applied at many interfaces, from hardware, to OS system calls, to high-level language run times, to cloud management stacks. While these approaches differ dramatically in implementation, they target similar benefits and often must tackle related challenges.

The 2012 ACM SIGPLAN/SIGOPS International Conference on Virtual Execution Environments brings together researchers across the many applications of virtualization in today's systems. We invite original papers on topics relating to virtualization – especially those that will have broad appeal across these approaches.

As in the past few years, VEE will be co-located with ACM ASPLOS, to be held March 3–7, 2012. Note that this year VEE is happening first, on the Saturday and Sunday prior to the main ASPLOS conference, and concurrent with the ASPLOS workshops.
