Fifth Data61 (formerly NICTA) Software Systems Summer School

Sydney, 13–14 February, 2017


Call for Participation

Software Systems Research Group

Supported by UNSW, and ANU

Over two days, this summer school will feature lectures by international leaders in computer systems from industry and academia, interspersed with short student talks and poster sessions. We will emphasise a friendly and informal setting where students can learn and obtain feedback from experts. Topics include virtual machines, hypervisors, compilers, operating systems, language implementation, memory management and security.

Research students may apply for participation by submitting an abstract (of no more than half a page) on their work, indicating how it overlaps with the topic of the summer school. They should also indicate whether they would like to give a short talk, although the organisers will only select a small number of student presentations. All attending students will be able to present a poster.

All submitted material must fit on a single A4 page.

Attendance is free, but subject to invitation based on the submitted abstract. We will also consider submissions from final-stage undergraduate students, post-docs or academic staff, provided they explain the benefits they expect from attendance. Supervisors of attending students are particularly welcome to attend.

A limited amount of travel support will be available for students from outside NSW and the ACT. 


The workshop and associated activities will be held at the Ainsworth building,  G02, K-J17-G02 (Map)
