The VM'04 Program Committee invites you to contribute refereed papers
and work-in-progress reports to the third USENIX Virtual Machine
Research and Technology Symposium (VM'04). The Program Committee also
welcomes ideas, proposals, papers for invited talks, and suggestions for
birds-of-a-feather sessions.

Third Virtual Machine Research and Technology Symposium 2004 (VM'04)
May 6-7, 2004

Paper submissions are due October 13, 2003

The scope of the symposium will expand beyond that of the first and

sessions. VM '04 will continue to emphasize research and advanced
engineering techniques applicable to the development of virtual
machines, with an emphasis on experimental results. A Symposium
Proceedings will be printed and distributed to attendees.

Awards for the best paper and the best paper that is primarily the work
of a student will be presented at the Symposium.

We look forward to seeing you in May 2004 in San Jose!
