Cornell Systems Lunch

Fall 2002

Emin Gun Sirer and Andrew Myers

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

This fall, we focus on relevant papers from the upcoming OSDI and ASPLOS conferences.

We will meet once a week on fridays at noon in the systems lab (Upson 331). There will be free lunch for the participants, contingent upon their participation in the paper discussion (i.e. there is no such thing as a free lunch).

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

You are encouraged to sign up for CS 754, Systems Research Seminar, for one credit.

Past systems seminars: Spring 02 Fall 01
