The ACM Symposium on Operating Systems Principles (SOSP) is a conference that brings together developers and researchers from academia and industry to advance the science and technology in operating systems. The conference is sponsored by the ACM Special Interest Group on Operating Systems (SIGOPS). It has been held once every two years since 1967, when the first SOSP conference took place in Gatlinburg, Tennessee. Information on SOSP conferences is provided below. SOSP attendees can also join the SOSP Facebook Group.
