ASPLOS is going quite well so far. There were a few really interesting papers (see below). My talk went well, if I may say so myself… the slides are online.

Papers y’all should read:

Overshadow: A Virtualization-Based Approach to Retrofitting Protection in Commodity Operating Systems – Protecting an application from a malicious OS sounds counter-intuitive, but given a sufficiently smart hypervisor, it can be done. This is another step toward making the OS just another library.

Accelerating Two-Dimensional Page Walks for Virtualized Systems – How to get nested paging to perform.

The Design and Implementation of Microdrivers – Automatically split Linux kernel drivers into a performance critical part (which stays in the kernel) and a non-performance critical part which is moved to user-space.
