CS 59100-DSN: Distributed Systems and Networking Seminar: Spring 2012

The goal of the seminar is to allow students and faculty to get together on a weekly basis to discuss topics ranging from papers published in recent networking conferences such as SIGCOMM, INFOCOM, ICNP, and IMC, and systems conferences such as NSDI, SOSP, and OSDI, to their own research. Every week, one (or two) persons lead the discussion. In time, all those interested in networking and systems can be informed about cutting-edge research in these areas. The seminar is open to all; however, you are expected to present at some point (not everyone will present every semester).

Venue: LWSN 1106
Timing: Wednesdays 3:30 -- 4:20 PM
