About the SDI Seminar Series

 

The Systems Design and Implementation (SDI) seminar series is an informal gathering of the SCS & ECE computer systems community. The range of talks is broad, covering the structure, implementation and performance of substantial systems. Typically, talks are on operating systems, distributed systems, networking, databases and language implementations, storage and ML/AI. Seminars 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, visit the above link and subscribe yourself, or send mail to Karen with "subscribe SDI-list" in the subject line. PLEASE USE A *.CMU.EDU address to subscribe.
