NSDI '05 - 2nd Symposium on Networked Systems Design and Implementation
The NSDI conference focuses on the design principles of large-scale networks and distributed systems. Systems as diverse as Internet routing, peer-to-peer file sharing, sensor nets, scalable Web services, and distributed network measurement share a set of challenges. Progress in any of these areas requires an understanding of how researchers are addressing the challenges of large-scale systems in other contexts. Our goal is to bring together researchers from across the networking and systems communityincluding computer networking, distributed systems, and operating systemsto foster cross-disciplinary approaches and to address shared research challenges.4 http://www.usenix.org/events/nsdi05/May 2-7, 2005

ISPCon is the industrys premier Internet Service Provider conference. It will be held May 24-26 2005 at the Baltimore Convention Center, Baltimore, Maryland.
The founders of OpenHosting, Scott Mendenhall and Grisha Trubetskoy, will present the technical and business challenges of being the first service provider to implement a utility pricing model for hosting.
According to Scott Mendenhall, "The acceptance by the customer base has been fantastic. We know that hosting is rapidly becoming an on-demand utility. Consumers have come to expect that they will only be charged for what they use, but like with electric service have what they need when they need it. Our utility pricing model allows them to do just that - to pay for just the computing resources they use when they use them. They appreciate the fact that we can show them what resources they use and when. Further, most of the users saw a decrease in their monthly billing. http://ispcon.com/spring2005/default.asp May 24-26, 2005

The 7th Fraud Detection & Prevention Leadership Forum: Taking the fight to the fraudsters
As fraud and abuse continue their unrelenting rise, it has never been more critical to build effective strategies and policies that protect our organisations' people, assets and reputations. There are a lot of them and few of us; so working together is not optional.
At SAS we believe that to win the war against financial crime, you have to take the fight to the criminal, and so the Fraud Detection and Prevention Leadership Forums are unique opportunities to discover how to maximise the effectiveness of your anti-fraud measures.
SAS' commitment to obtaining world-class presenters for these forums continues with a range of eight speakers at this event, including IWF CEO, Peter Robbins, CEO.
The forum will be chaired by Nicholas Owen, broadcaster and journalist.
Each speaker is a recognised authority in their area, and will be able to share a powerful blend of strategic insights with practical experience and lessons learnt that you will be able to apply in your own organisation.
This forum will be covering a diverse range of subjects in the public and commercial sectors, as well as policing priorities and what to expect if you ever have to act as a witness.
As well as meeting other senior executives, the Fraud Detection and Prevention Leadership Forum is also an opportunity to meet independent experts and find out what is so special about the most successful organisations in this field. http://www.sas.com/offices/europe/uk/events/fraud7/index.html
