The VT CS department’s Systems Reading Group (SRG) reads papers from a variety of systems-related conferences, including SOSP/OSDI, EuroSys, ASPLOS, FAST, CCS, USENIX Security, ICSE, FSE, and further afield. It should be of interest to students studying computer systems from many perspectives.
Each week the SRG discusses 1-3 papers from a top conference, striving to broaden our knowledge of computer science and to improve our own skills in researching, evaluating, and reporting our work.
The SRG also provides a supportive setting in which members can share research ideas or practice giving research talks for upcoming conferences.
Participants enjoy regular interaction with members of other research groups as well as exposure to a breadth of recent research. As a result, their research horizons are broadened and their ongoing research strengthened.
