This year, PIRL is offering the chance to host working meetings for persistent-memory related projects. If you’re involved in such a project, we’d love to have you hold your face-to-face near the beach at PIRL.
Last year, several PIRL participants suggested co-located “working meetings” for software (or other) projects related to persistent memory. The idea is that members of your group (e.g., core developers of persistent memory software project) could attend PIRL and a group meeting before or after the conference.
UC San Diego and the Non-Volatile Systems Laboratory can provide meeting space hosted and sponsored by SNIA for eligible working groups. In return, we just ask that all the attendees register for PIRL. We would prefer that the meeting be open to other PIRL attendees, but this is not a requirement. We are accepting submissions today.
If you or your group are interested, fill out the submission proposal form and select “Group Meeting” as the “presentation type.” We’ll be in touch to discuss logistics in more detail.
Steven Swanson is a professor in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at the University of California, San Diego and the director of the Non-volatile Systems Laboratory. His research interests include the systems, architecture, security, and reliability issues surrounding heterogeneous memory/storage systems, especially those that incorporate non-volatile, solid-state memories. He has received an NSF CAREER Award, Google Faculty Awards, a Facebook Faculty Award, and been a NetApp Faculty Fellow. He is a co-founder of the Non-Volatile Memories Workshop.
