Systems Reading Group
Tom Magrino
Kai Mast


The Systems Reading Group meets weekly to discuss papers related to topics in computer systems. The goal is to encourage interactions and discussions between students, researchers, and faculty with interests in this area. The group is open to everyone interested in computer systems research!

Talks and discussions will be advertised on the sysrg AT email list. To sign up, email Kai Mast and he will add you to the mailing list.

Some discussion outside of our meetings happens in the Cornell CIS Slack #syslab channel.
