Reading Group Paper List. Papers ##51-60.

With just four more papers to go in the DistSys Reading Group’s current batch, it is time to get the next set going. This round, we will have 10 papers that should last till the end of the spring semester. Our last batch was all about OSDI’20 papers, and this time around we will mix things around both in terms of the venues and paper recency. We will also start the batch with one foundational paper taken from Murat’s recent list of must-read classical papers in distributed systems. Without further ado, here is the list:

  1. Distributed Snapshots: Determining Global States of a Distributed System – April 7th
