[Scope and Objectives]

xSIG (cross-disciplinary workshop on computing Systems, Infra-structures, and programminG) is a workshop that has started from 2017 inheriting the tradition of JSPP,SACSIS,and ACSI. It solicits contributions from a wide range of fields related to computing systems, infrastructures, and programming, spanning all areas covered by the sponsoring special interest groups (cross-SIG).


Starting from 2020, xSIG is joining SWoPP, where many SIGs on computing systems held workshops at a time in a common place.


The main objectives of xSIG are to provide a forum to present and discuss research ideas among researchers spanning many fields and to raise young researchers through a globally standard peer review process. In particular,

  • We hope authors of xSIG workshop to advance their research based on feedback received and step up to submitting their work to international conferences and journals. For this, we do not publish workshop proceedings, so that the work presented in xSIG will not be regarded as published. The papers presented in xSIG will be available only to the audience during the workshop.
  • We hope to give authors substantial feedback as well as a place for young researchers to practice/improve writing papers for review, through the globally standard conference format of submitting papers for review, receiving/writing reviews, discussing papers in the program committee meeting, etc. For this, we establish Young Program Committee alongside the regular Program Committee and welcome the participation of young researchers including
    students to it, for “an early exposure” of motivated students to peer review work normally done by senior researchers.
  • We award many students from diverse criterion to encourage students working on their Master/Bachelor’s theses to submit a paper around them.
