The reading group organized by the OrderLab covers latest advances in the research of computer systems. Students will read and discuss recent papers in top systems conferences such as OSDI, SOSP, NSDI, EuroSys, and ASPLOS.
Each week, one student will present the paper and lead the discussion. Other students should read the paper to be presented before the seminar. This seminar is supposed to generate in-depth discussions. It is impossible to do so without reading the paper first.
The focus topics covered in the papers vary semester to semester. Example topics include fault-tolerance, reliability, verification, energy efficiency, and virtualization. The presenter decides which paper to present. In general, select the papers that are relevant to your research project first (i.e., depth-first). If you are not sure, check with me first before preparing the presentation. Also, try to avoid picking papers that have already been picked in the past (the past schedules are linked on the left-side menu).
The presentation announcements are sent via the mailing list email@example.com, which will also be used to generate follow-up discussions of the presented paper. Students who wish to sign up for the mailing list, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
