ACM SIGOPS is the Association for Computing Machinery's Special Interest Group on Operating Systems, an international community of students, faculty, researchers, and practitioners associated with research and development related to operating systems.[1] The organization sponsors prestigious international conferences related to computer systems, operating systems, computer architectures, distributed computing, and virtual environments. In addition, the organization offers multiple awards recognizing outstanding participants in the field, including the Dennis M. Ritchie Doctoral Dissertation Award, in honor of Dennis Ritchie, co-creator of the renowned C programming language and Unix operating system.[2]


In 1965, Henriette Avram started the ACM Special Interest Committee on Time-Sharing (SICTIME), and Arthur M. Rosenberg became the first chair. In 1968, the name was changed to ACM SIGOPS. By 1969, the organization included nearly 1000 members.[3]


ACM SIGOPS sponsors the following industry conferences, some independently and some in partnership with industry participants such as ACM SIGPLAN, USENIX, Oracle, Microsoft, and VMWare.

Hall of Fame

ACM SIGOPS includes a Hall of Fame Award, started in 2005, recognizing influential papers from ten or more years in the past. Notable recipients include:


ACM SIGOPS publishes the Operating Systems Review (OSR), a forum for topics including operating systems and architecture for multiprogramming, multiprocessing, and time-sharing, and computer system modeling and analysis.[13]
