We will start the fall semester with a new set of reading group papers. As before, we have ten papers in total. Nine of them are new papers from top venues, and one is a foundational paper on Viestamped Replication. Instead of the original VR paper, we will look at its more modern counterpart/rewrite/update — “Viewstamped Replication Revisited.” Anyway, here is the full list:
- DistAI: Data-Driven Automated Invariant Learning for Distributed Protocols – September 1st
- Polyjuice: High-Performance Transactions via Learned Concurrency Control (OSDI’21) – September 8th
- Meerkat: multicore-scalable replicated transactions following the zero-coordination principle (EuroSys’20) – September 15th.
- Viewstamped Replication Revisited – Classical/Foundation Paper – September 22nd
- Don’t Look Back, Look into the Future: Prescient Data Partitioning and Migration for Deterministic Database Systems (SIGMOD’21) – September 29th
- Avocado: A Secure In-Memory Distributed Storage System (ATC’21) – October 6th
- NrOS: Effective Replication and Sharing in an Operating System (OSDI’21) – October 13th
- Characterizing and Optimizing Remote Persistent Memory with RDMA and NVM (ATC’21) – October 20th
- Scaling Large Production Clusters with Partitioned Synchronization (ATC’21) – October 27th
- UniStore: A fault-tolerant marriage of causal and strong consistency (ATC’21) – November 3rd
Our reading groups takes place over Zoom every Wednesday at 2:00 pm EST. We have a slack group where we post papers, hold discussions and most importantly manage Zoom invites to the papers. Please join the slack group to get involved!
