The Plan 9 operating system and related technologies, such as the 9p protocols and the Inferno OS, have gained increased interest due to the recent founding of the Plan 9 Foundation and the publication of Plan 9 and Inferno source code under the MIT open source license.
This 2024 edition of the International Workshop on Plan 9 aims to bring together researchers, developers and students working on Plan 9 from Bell Labs or related systems, platforms, and projects, to discuss a wide range of system and application ideas and issues.
Suggested topics for papers and discussion include, but are not restricted to, any of the following:
- System Architecture
- System Services
- Ports to New Hardware Platforms
- File Systems and Servers
- Projects for other Platforms Related to Plan 9
- Security Topics
All systems in the Plan 9 family are welcome.

March TBD-TBD, 2024: Workshop
In order to increase the interactivity of the workshop, we intend to offer a hackathon and/or tutorial session in addition to the presentation of regular and short work in progress papers. Please send your proposal to iwp9paper at iwp9.org including the topic and a short abstract of the session, the name(s) of the organizer(s), duration of the session and required infrastructure (e.g. wired/wireless network, power, video projector).
Papers of up to 15 pages must be sent to iwp9paper at iwp9.org in PDF. Please do not forget to include the e-mail address of the author. Submissions will be acknowledged via e-mail (please allow for a small delay). Papers must be visually similar to Plan 9 papers that can be found at /sys/doc/9/ in order to compile a homogeneous proceedings book. Please keep this look and feel, use the same fonts and do not include page numbers.
WIP of up to 3 pages must be sent to iwp9wip at iwp9.org in PDF format. Please do not forget to include the e-mail address of the author. Submissions will be acknowledged via e-mail (please allow for a small delay). Formatting requirements are the same as for papers.
The registration deadline is March 1st, 2024. To receive an IWP9 t-shirt, please register by Feb 1st, 2024. Please note that we can accomodate, at most, TBD attendees.
To register, please send an e-mail to iwp9reg at iwp9.org with your name, affiliation and e-mail address, one per line. If you would like an IWP9 t-shirt, please also include the preferred size.
The workshop will be held in Munich, Germany on the campus of the Munich University of Applied Sciences.
