Call For Papers

First Workshop on I/O Virtualization (WIOV '08)
December 10-11, 2008, San Diego, CA, USA
http://www.usenix.org/wiov08

WIOV '08 will be held in conjunction with the 8th USENIX Symposium on Operating Systems Design and Implementation (OSDI '08), December 8-10, 2008.

Overview

Over the past 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.

This workshop is meant to provide a forum to discuss challenges of I/O virtualization that span 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 and papers that describe novel approaches to solving
known problems in 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 will be accessible to a broad audience.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

* 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
