USENIX is the Advanced Computing Systems Association. For over 25 years, its members have come from a broad community of developers, researchers, system administrators and engineers with interests spanning the full range of technology. As the core conference of this community, the USENIX Annual Technical Conference is the premier forum for computing professionals to share the results of their latest and best work, develop new ideas and solutions, and connect with their colleagues.
Three days of tutorials start the conference with practical tutorials on timely topics. The three-day technical session of the conference follows and includes a track of General Session Refereed Papers selected by the Program Committee; a track of Invited Talks by experts and leaders in the field; and FREENIX, a track of refereed papers on freely available POSIX-based software and systems.
FREENIX Refereed Track submissions due: November 27, 2000
General Session Refereed Track submissions due: December 1, 2000
Extended to Dec. 8, 2000
Notification to authors: January 31, 2001

Cluster computing
Complexity management
Distributed caching and replication
Extensible operating systems
File systems and storage systems
Interoperability of heterogeneous systems
Mobile code
Mobile computing
Networking and network services
