First Annual CROSS Research Symposium & 8th UCSC Systems Oktoberfest

Monday, October 24, 2016 to Tuesday, October 25, 2016
Lower Courtyard BSOE and Simularium (E2.180)

The Center for Research in Open Source Software (CROSS) aims to integrate the activities of open-source software communities into university research and education. The Center uses open-source projects as a way to share research and talent, creating an excellent learning and research environment.

The CROSS two-day Symposium provides an opportunity to learn about numerous OSS research projects, interact with CROSS faculty, graduate students, and affiliated researchers, as well as outside researchers and members of the OSS community. In keeping with tradition, the UCSC Systems Research Lab will also host its annual Oktoberfest barbecue dinner on the evening of the first day of the symposium.

This year, the symposium will feature research on ongoing work in the fields of:

• Secure, Real-Time Sharing of Cancer Gene Information

• Programmability and Architecture of Storage Systems

• Workshop on Data-Driven Dynamic Networked Systems

• Towards a Better Computer Arithmetic: A unum (Universal Number) Workshop

Each day begins with a plenary session and continues with two tracks of topic-specific workshops.
