Call For Papers

The 17th USENIX Symposium on Operating Systems Design and Implementation seeks to present innovative, exciting research in computer systems. OSDI brings together professionals from academic and industrial backgrounds in a premier forum for discussing the design, implementation, and implications of systems software. OSDI emphasizes innovative research and quantified or insightful experiences in systems design and implementation.

OSDI takes a broad view of the systems area and solicits contributions from many fields of systems practice, including operating systems, file and storage systems, distributed systems, cloud computing, mobile systems, secure and reliable systems, systems aspects of big data, embedded systems, virtualization, networking as it relates to operating systems, and management and troubleshooting of complex systems. We also welcome work that explores the interface to related areas such as computer architecture, networking, programming languages, analytics, and databases. We encourage contributions with highly original ideas, new approaches, and groundbreaking results.

Submitting a Paper

Submissions will be judged on novelty, significance, interest, clarity, relevance, and correctness. Accepted papers will be shepherded through an editorial review process by a member of the program committee.

A good paper will:

    Motivate a significant problem
    Propose an interesting and compelling solution
    Demonstrate the practicality and benefits of the solution
    Draw appropriate conclusions
    Clearly describe the paper's contributions
    Clearly articulate the advances beyond previous work

Accepted papers will generally be available online to registered attendees before the conference. If your accepted paper should not be published prior to the event, please notify The papers will be available online to everyone beginning on the first day of the conference.

Papers accompanied by nondisclosure agreement forms will not be considered. All submissions will be treated as confidential prior to publication on the USENIX OSDI '23 website; rejected submissions will be permanently treated as confidential.

Simultaneous submission of the same work to multiple venues, submission of previously published work, or plagiarism constitutes dishonesty or fraud. USENIX, like other scientific and technical conferences and journals, prohibits these practices and may, on the recommendation of a program chair, take action against authors who have committed them. See the USENIX Conference Submissions Policy for details.

Prior or concurrent workshop publication does not preclude publishing a related paper in OSDI. Authors should email the program co-chairs,, a copy of the related workshop paper and a short explanation of the new material in the conference paper beyond that published in the workshop version. The co-chairs may then share that paper with the workshop's organizers and discuss it with them.

Prior or concurrent publication in non-peer-reviewed contexts, like, technical reports, talks, and social media posts, is permitted. However, your OSDI submission must use an anonymized name for your project or system that differs from any used in such contexts.

USENIX discourages program co-chairs from submitting papers to the conferences they organize, although they are allowed to do so. Should either program co-chair submit work to OSDI '23, their papers will be handled exclusively by the other program co-chair and reviewed according to the same rigorous and double blinded procedures that the program committee applies to all papers. In the event that a paper is co-authored by, or otherwise conflicted with, both co-chairs, the co-chairs will designate a PC member to manage the reviewing process for that paper.

Questions? Contact your program co-chairs,, or the USENIX office,

By submitting a paper, you agree that at least one of the authors will attend the conference to present it. If the conference registration fee will pose a hardship for the presenter of the accepted paper, please contact For very special circumstances (such as travel restrictions or health issues), USENIX may provide the possibility of remote presentation and Q&A.

If your paper is accepted and you need an invitation letter to apply for a visa to attend the conference, please contact as soon as possible. (Visa applications can take at least 30 working days to process.) Please identify yourself as a presenter and include your mailing address in your email.
