SyLab Paper Club

We meet every Wednesday 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm over Zoom.

Our goal is to motivate the members of the group to read and discuss papers on systems research - storage, operating systems, virtualization, security, etc.

You can volunteer to moderate a paper on a particular date by choosing a paper and putting your name and the paper information in the Schedule section. Please pick a paper by Friday of the week before you present the paper so all members have enough time to read the paper.

If you come across an interesting paper and wish to discuss it with the group, please add it to the Recommended Papers list.

It is imperative that everybody reads the paper before the meeting. The moderator of the paper leads the discussion and provides a summary of the paper, which includes the problem addressed, the strategies proposed, the evaluation techniques and other key points in the paper. Everybody participates in the discussions and presents his/her critical review to the group. Finally, we could also discuss if we could apply or relate the work in the paper to our on-going projects or get ideas for new research projects.

For any questions or if you would like to join the SyLab Paper club, email us.

We typically read papers from the proceedings of the following conferences:

  • USENIX Annual Technical Conference
  • ISCA
  • ACM Sigmetrics

But, really, any reasonable paper that you found interesting is OK.
