7th Greater Chicago Area Systems Research Workshop (GCASR)

 @ University of Chicago, Ida Noyes Hall 

Monday, April 30, 2018

University of Chicago campus

The Greater Chicago Area Systems Research Workshop (GCASR) is a premier venue for the Chicago and Midwest systems research community. The workshop's goal is to promote awareness, collaboration, and synergy among academic and corporate systems researchers in the region, and it includes major participation from the University of Chicago, Northwestern University, the University of Illinois at Chicago, the Illinois Institute of Technology, and the Argonne National Laboratory. Its participants represent a variety of sub-areas of systems, broadly construed, including operating systems, distributed computing, systems for machine learning, high performance computing, computer architecture, networks, databases, and security.

This year's GCASR — the 7th edition — will continue that tradition, but will also emphasize the themes of the intersection of machine learning and systems, cybersecurity, and cryptocurrencies. We have a strong line up of 19 speakers representing academia, industry, and national laboratories as well as a poster session. There will also be a keynote address delivered by Elaine Shi, Associate Professor of Computer Science at Cornell and Co-director of the Initiative for Cryptocurrency and Contracts (IC3).

We invite you to join us!
