                        CALL FOR PAPERS

         Second Workshop on I/O Virtualization (WIOV '10)

               Held in conjunction with ASPLOS 2010
               March, 2010, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania


Over the last decade the use of virtualization technology has grown
rapidly.  Moreover, it is being used in a variety of places, ranging
from the data center to the desktop.  Although this has spurred great
advances in processor and memory virtualization in commodity hardware
and virtualization software, I/O virtualization has received far less
attention.  However, both personal computers and servers may perform
significant amounts of I/O.  For example, efficient virtualization of
graphics hardware has presented significant challenges on the desktop
and efficient virtualization of network interfaces has limited server
consolidation in the data center.

Following on the success of the First Workshop on I/O Virtualization
(WIOV '08), this one-day workshop is again meant to provide a forum to
discuss the challenges of I/O virtualization that cut across the
virtual machine monitor, guest operating system, processor, memory
subsystem, and I/O subsystem.  In that spirit, we welcome papers that
describe new challenges in I/O virtualization, papers that describe
novel approaches to solving known problems in I/O virtualization, and
papers describing real world experiences in the area of I/O
virtualization. The final program will consist of both reviewed
submissions and invited talks.  The invited talks will focus on open
problems in I/O virtualization and be accessible to a broad audience.

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

* Networking, storage, graphics, and any other form of I/O
* Hardware support for I/O virtualization
* Novel I/O device architectures for virtualization
* Novel software approaches to I/O virtualization
* Software methods for I/O device emulation
* Para-virtualized I/O device driver design for virtualization
* Virtual machine monitors I/O subsystems

Submission Guidelines:

Please submit short papers of no more than 5 pages using 10pt or
larger fonts (figures and references are not included in this 5 page
limit). Further submission instructions will be available at

Important Dates:

Submission due:                 January 22nd, 2010
