Technical Problems of Operating Systems

You will investigate technical problems of operating systems, and provide a written report. Your research should focus on an in-depth topic about theories, algorithms, approaches, mechanisms, or implementation of one of the following fields of operating systems: process management process and thread CPU scheduling synchronization deadlock handling storage management main memory virtual memory file systems mass-storage and I/O protection and security distributed, real-time, and multimedia systems Your topic could come from a sub-problem of cutting-edge research problems discussed in the literature (i.e., investigating a technical problem). Please Pick one of your most confidence topic from the topics section and write a Proposal. To ensure that your topic has adequate depth and coverage, you MUST write a one-page proposal that outlines your area of interest and associated references you will use.  Research Paper Your investigation will be based on recent publications (i.e., published in the past five years) such as journal/conference papers and technical documents, and the applicable software packages (open source preferred). You are encouraged to read some papers about new techniques in operating systems.  SOSP: ACM Symposium on Operating Systems Principles (ACM) ACM SIGOPS Operating Systems Review (ACM) ACM Transactions on Computer Systems (ACM) IEEE Transactions on Computers (IEEE) ACM Computing Surveys (ACM) Communications of the ACM (ACM) IEEE Computer. . . (IEEE) Linux Journal (ACM) Once you have chosen your topic, you need to identify meaningful, feasible outcomes for your research on the topic. Overall, the outcomes should interest and benefit the professional community of operating system research and development. Some possible outcomes: analysis, findings, and discovery of problems. results of your tests, surveys, and comparative analysis. proposals for new or improved methods, algorithms, etc. meaningful implementation plans. insight on future directions. Present the outcomes of your research in a 10- to 15-page paper written in a journal or conference paper format. References should be cited using APA or IEEE Style. Your paper should include the following sections: Title Abstract: no more than 300 words. Introduction/background: motivation for research and introduction to the outcomes, including a literature review and reference citations. Methods: describe the problem and the methods you used to explore or address the problem. Results and findings: research results or exploration findings, including theoretical analysis and any experimental and implementation results you accomplished based on your methods. Related work: summarize related work by others; compare your methods and results with others’ work. Cite your references. Conclusion and future work: conclude your exploration and research, and suggest possible future work on the topic.
