We invite you to join us for the 5th Annual Greater Chicago Area Systems Research Workshop (GCASR) Workshop! This workshop is a venue to foster, awareness, collaboration, and community amongst the systems researchers and leading technologists throughout the greater Chicago area.  Last year, we had more than 300 attendees.  As the GCASR community continues to expand, this year we will have two keynote talks given by Bill Dally (Chief Scientist and SVP of Research for NVIDIA) and Michael Franklin (Thomas M. Siebel Professor and Chair of CS Division at UC Berkeley), and many great technical talks given by great speakers from academia, national labs, and industry.  The topics of interest will include: Cloud computing, Big Data analytics, Security, Internet of Things, High-Performance Computing and more.   We look forward to meeting you in this venue!
