New Directions in Networked Systems Design

9:00am – 12:10pm

Location: Redmond, WA

Join us for a fast paced half-day mini-summit where some of the active networked systems researchers in academia and industry give short (~10 minute) talks answering the following two questions: (1) what are the cannot misscutting-edge problem(s) [they are working on] and how will their solution(s) transform/impact our industry, and (2) why should the industry care (or not care) about a particular “hot” research area/topic?

The goal of this informal event is to create stronger ties between Microsoft’s technical community leaders and some of the top systems researchers in academia, and to learn about the next big ideas these researchers are working on.
