Preamble : The 1st Indian Symposium on Computer Systems (IndoSys), to be held in Bangalore from June 28-29, 2014, in cooperation with ACM India and IEEE Computer Society Bangalore Chapter, is meant as a forum to bring together faculty, scientists, research scholars and practitioners working on different aspects of computer systems research in Indian institutions. IndoSys offers a forum for discussing contemporary research activities in Computer Systems, emerging tools, techniques and platforms, and unique systems research activities within the Indian context. The symposium will also serve to build a critical mass of systems researchers within the country to help further scientific activities in this area. The symposium will be held in the C-DAC Knowledge Park Campus in Bangalore. The symposium will immediately follow C-DAC’s ThinkParallel Workshop being held at the same venue during June 23-27, 2014. Interested participants are also encouraged to register for ThinkParallel.
