The planning for PIRL 2020 is well underway. It’ll be held at UC San Diego on July 13-14. We are expecting a bigger turnout and a more diverse program this year, so mark your Calendars!
PIRL will keep its focus on practical issues and experiences using persistent memory in all kinds of computer systems, but we are also hoping to field a wider range of different presentations and formats. These will probably include a mix of longer and shorter talks, panels, tutorials, and group meetings co-located with the PIRL.
