Conference Registration Form

Hotel Reservation FORM and Hotel Web Site, Be sure to ask for the low conference Rate. For Sunday and Monday nights try the Hotels listed below.

St. Francis Hotel. Please book as many nights as possible at La Fonda to keep the WOSP '98 operating costs at a minimum. Mention that you are with WOSP to get a special room rate.

Radisson Inn and Suites on the Plaza. The location on the Plaza (125 Washington Ave. 505-988-4900, is closest to La Fonda and has a special WOSP room rate. The hotel is walking distance to La Fonda. However, please book as many nights as possible at La Fonda to keep the WOSP '98 operating costs at a minimum. There is another Radisson that is NOT walking distance. Parking near the Plaza/La Fonda is difficult and expensive because it is the best area in Santa Fe for ambiance, restaurants, walking, sightseeing, and shopping.

Why a New Workshop?

The relationship between software design and system performance is of growing interest, motivated by difficulties in implementing parallel and distributed systems. There is work going on at a lot of places now. However the peculiar blend of performance concerns and software concerns usually falls between two different communities. Separately, the communities are making rather slow progress, so a workshop to bring them together would be valuable to both.

The workshop should address questions such as:

Intended Participation

With this combination of contributions we are looking for a lively discussion of open questions as well as definitive summary of the state of knowledge. We are also looking for a balance (as equal as possible) between industrial and academic participants. We expect the majority of full papers to come from academics, the majority of short papers to come from industry, and position papers to come from both.
