SDI/ISTC Seminar Series Schedule



 

About the SDI/ISTC Seminar Series

The Systems Design and Implementation (SDI) / Intel Science & Technology Center (ISTC) seminar series is an informal gathering of the SCS & ECE systems community. The range of talks is broad, covering the structure, implementation and performance of substantial systems. Typically, talks are on operating systems, application systems, communications, databases and language implementations, and are given by both Carnegie Mellon researchers and outside visitors.

SDI seminars may be advertised with only a day's warning through the SDI mailing list. If you would like to subscribe to this list to receive information on upcoming seminars, send mail to Karen with "subscribe SDI-list" in the subject line.
