The Israeli Experimental Systems Conference
May 4-6, 2009
Organized by IBM R&D Labs in Israel
IBM Haifa Research Lab and IBM Systems and Technology Group Lab, in collaboration with Israeli academia, are organizing SYSTOR 2009, a successor to the highly successful workshops on systems and storage held at the IBM Haifa Research Lab. The goal of the conference is to promote systems research and to foster stronger ties between the Israeli and worldwide systems research communities and industry.
SYSTOR 2009 will be a three-day conference combining academic and industrial sessions. Each day will include a keynote by a well-known international researcher on one of the conference topics. In addition we are planning special activities for graduate students.
Papers of a practical and experimental nature are solicited for the academic and industrial tracks. The conference is open to all systems research topics, including storage and distributed systems.
For the academic track, papers should report original research; if part of the material submitted was published previously, the paper should so indicate, and should provide substantial additional results and material.
For the industrial track, we are looking for technical presentations that describe the technology behind real products and the considerations that shaped the product's design and functionality.

As part of the conference, students will have the opportunity to interact with senior researchers and obtain feedback regarding their research. To promote such interactions, we will have a poster session where students present their work. We will also have a lunch where members of the program committee and IBM researchers will be matched with students for more intensive interaction.
Venue and Social Event
The conference will be held in the lovely city of Haifa, which overlooks the Mediterranean Sea, and is home to Jews, Muslims, and Christians. Haifa is also the world center of the Baha'i faith. A trip will be organized to the wondrous Baha'i gardens and to areas in the city of Jerusalem.
