Optional Research Paper Reading
Here are three papers from the most recent Symposium on Operating Systems Principles
(SOSP). SOSP is one of the top research conferences in operating systems. It is very competitive to get a paper accepted to it. You might be interested in having a look at one or more. It will probably be at least a little frustrating,
but I'm confident you can understand a lot of each of these papers with a little perseverance.
Here are the papers. I've ordered them from what I guess is least challenging to most challenging. (To see
