ICSA papers to be presented at USENIX ATC'19

Two papers from ICSA researchers have been accepted to be presented at USENIX ATC'19

The 2019 USENIX Annual Technical Conference will take place in Renton, Washington on 10-12 July 2019.

In their paper "A Retargetable System-Level DBT Hypervisor", Tom Spink, Harry Wagstaff, and Björn Franke develop a novel, retargetable Dynamic Binary Translator (DBT) hypervisor, which includes guest specific modules generated from high-level guest machine specifications.  Their system simplifies retargeting of the DBT, but it also delivers performance levels in excess of existing manually created DBT solutions. They achieve this by combining offline and online optimizations, and exploiting the freedom of a JIT compiler operating in a bare-metal environment provided by a standard VM hypervisor.

The authors of the second paper, “SemperOS: Distributed Capability System“, Matthias Hille, Nils Asmussen, Pramod Bhatotia and Hermann Haertig present a scalable capability system. The system is based on a HW/SW co-designed distributed capability system, and associated multi-kernel microkernel-based OS.

USENIX ATC brings together leading systems researchers for the presentation of cutting-edge systems research and the opportunity to gain insight into a wealth of must-know topics, including virtualization, system, and network management and troubleshooting, cloud and edge computing, security, privacy, and trust, mobile and wireless, and more. The program includes a keynote address by Remzi Arpaci-Dusseau, University of Wisconsin—Madison.
