Cornell Systems Lunch

CS 754 Spring 2006
Friday 12PM, Upson 315

Andrew Myers and E. Gün Sirer

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

The Systems Lunch is a seminar for discussing recent, interesting papers in the systems area, broadly defined to span operating systems, distributed systems, networking, architecture, databases, and programming languages. The goal is to foster technical discussions among the Cornell systems research community. We meet once a week on Fridays at noon in Upson 315.

The systems lunch is open to all Cornell students interested in systems. First-year graduate students are especially welcome. Student participants are expected to sign up for CS 754, Systems Research Seminar, for one credit.
