Why join a shadow PC?
Serving on a shadow PC is an excellent opportunity for young systems researchers (PhD students, postdocs, and new faculty members) to gain experience in community service, i.e., program committee practices.
Serving as a member of a shadow PC is a lot of work. But, besides the recognition of being selected, it is also worthwhile for a number of reasons, including:
* Getting to know how an academic PC is run and how it operates;
* Seeing how more experienced reviewers judge the same papers that you review;
* Getting to see both strong and weak papers at the submission stage;
* Discovering what it takes to publish a paper in a highly selective conference, such as EuroSys;
* Having a chance to read top-notch papers in your area of expertise before they are published;
* Getting to know other young researchers who are also selected to the shadow PC.

How does the shadow PC work?
Shadow PC members must commit themselves to writing their own detailed and rigorous reviews for papers assigned to them by the allotted deadlines. This timely review commitment is essential to the good functioning of the Shadow PC. Candidates who might be unable to fulfill their reviewing duties should refrain from applying. We expect a review load of 10-15 papers per member in one review round. Members will not be expected to take part in a rebuttal stage. Shadow PC members are also expected to attend at least a one-day online shadow PC meeting (more days if the number of submissions is particularly higher than expected). Shadow PC members will be required to comply with ethical code of conduct.

How to become a shadow PC member
You will need to submit your application via the Eurosys Shadow PC submission site:
You will need to complete the submission form and attach in form of a single pdf following information:
* Short motivation letter (not more than 300 words);
* Your CV;
* In case you are a PhD student, please also provide a short support statement from your supervisor/advisor.
With your submission you will commit to the principles and standards of ethical conduct of research integrity as for example stated by the Netherlands Code of Conduct for Research Integrity.
