This seminar is devoted to a critical analysis of the new and latest papers in hot topics of systems and networking (includes traditional systems, wired and wireless networking, distributed systems, multimedia networked systems, and much much more). Best papers and award-quality papers will be selected from conferences of interest (including but are limited to SIGCOMM, MOBICOM, MOBISYS, INFOCOM, SOSP, Usenix workshops, NSDI, Sensys, ICDCS, DSN, and others) and prominent journals, if necessary.
There are 2 goals for this seminar:
Introduce systems and networking students to a breadth of top-notch and award quality papers that everyone else in the systems&networking is talking about today.
Have students give top-quality presentations, and prepare themselves for future job talks.
Students will be able to obtain 1 hour credit for this seminar -- please register through the usual channels for CS 591 SN.
Note: If you have, in the past, taken Nitin's Systems and Networking seminar and/or Luo/Kravetz's Wireless Networking seminar: those two seminars have been merged into CS 591 SN. Neither of those previous two seminars are being offered during Fall 2005, but you can take (at least for this semester) CS 591 SN.
Note: If you are signed up for credit, and/or would like to present a paper, please contact the appropriate "Faculty Host" (see below) for the session in which your chosen paper belongs. If no papers are listed for that session yet, you may also send paper suggestions to the faculty host.
