OSDI 2016 and Microsoft Research


We were excited to be part of the 12th USENIX Symposium on Operating Systems Design and Implementation (OSDI ’16) in Savannah, Georgia, United States, November 2-4, 2016, at the Westin Savannah Harbor Golf Resort & Spa & Convention Center.

Microsoft was a Diamond sponsor and proud to have several researchers in attendance and present at OSDI ’16. If you were in attendance, we hope you were able to chat with our researchers about the projects and opportunities at Microsoft involving the design, implementation, and implications of systems software for billions of users. You can learn more about our research presented at OSDI ‘16 via the Accepted papers.
