VIII Operating Systems Workshop (WSO 2011)

The Operating Systems Workshop (WSO) was created on 2004 as a forum for the exchange of knowledge between researchers, students and enthusiasts of operating systems, fostering the cooperation between the players through shared projects and experiences. The workshop happens annually ever since, as part of the Congress of the Brazilian Computer Society, and is, nowadays, the main brazilian event in the area of operating systems. Beyond the presentation of technical-scientific works, the event offers tutorials and talks given by invited researchers. Since 2007 the workshop's best papers are published on Operating Systems Review, the main publication of ACM's Special Interest Group in Operating Systems. A detailed history of the event's past editions is available on http://www.lisha.ufsc.br/wso.

In 2011, the 8th edition of OSW will be part of the Brazilian Symposium of Computing Systems Engineering (SBESC).
