You are invited to the 3rd Annual UCSC Systems Research Lab (SRL) / Institute for Scalable Scientific Data Management (ISSDM) Research Symposium to be held at the Baskin School of Engineering at the University of California Santa Cruz on October 18 – 19, 2011.

The two-day Symposium will provide an opportunity to learn about the research of the SRL and ISSDM, interact with SRL and ISSDM faculty, graduate students, and affiliated researchers at Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL), and discuss future directions and collaborative research projects at UCSC and LANL.   In keeping with tradition, the UCSC Systems Research Lab will host its annual Oktoberfest barbecue dinner on the evening of the first day of the symposium.

**Research Review Day immediately follows the SRL/ISSDM Symposium and is another opportunity to learn about more cutting edge research at the Baskin School of Engineering; we include it here for your interest.

  • Systems  Research Day  (Tuesday, October 18) will focus on our research in storage, scalability, and system performance management.  Presentations will showcase the recent systems and storage research of the UCSC Systems Research Laboratory (SRL) and the Institute for Scalable Scientific Data Management (ISSDM). 
  • ISSDM Workshops Day  (Wednesday, October 19) will highlight research in the ISSDM Collaborative Research Program, a collaboration between the UCSC Jack Baskin School of Engineering (BSOE) and LANL.   The program will be divided into three focus areas: Cosmology, Human Computation and Knowledge Management.
  • **Research Review Day** (Thursday, October 20) will highlight some of the groundbreaking research that is being pursued at the Baskin School of Engineering. The program is divided into several focus areas to provide a broad view of the exciting research developments in technology for a changing world.
