Cornell Systems Lunch

Fall 2001

Emin Gun Sirer and Andrew Myers

Sponsored by the Information Assurance Institute (IAI),
Computing and Information Science, Cornell

This fall, we will be reading papers from the upcoming SOSP conference. We will meet once a week on mondays at noon in the systems lab (Upson 331).

The systems lunch is open to all Cornell students interested in systems. First-year graduate students are especially welcome.

We are planning to offer free lunch for the participants, contingent upon their participation in the paper discussion.
