(Initial) Goals

  • Form a “club” with faculties from 6 research group, invitation only. The faculties are the young working horses, instead of already established.
  • Every half year, one of the club member will be the host of the 1day event.
  • Faculties take their senior students, and MSRA research team (in most cases the entire team) will join for a one day retreat.
  • Opportunistically, we will invite one external senior researchers (not necessarily from any of the members).
  • The goal is brainstorm and plan on works that will push this small community to reach for an ambitious and yet achievable milestones. For the system discipline, it would something like SOSP/OSDI/ASPLOS papers. Ideally, this is to promote collaboration among the members (whether with MSRA or not is not an issue at all).
  • We will spend about 2/3 of the time examining what’s planned on the last retreat, and 1/3 on new targets.

Letter of Invitation

Dear XXX,

ZZ, Lidong and I are now planning a DeepSea club for system community in China and the first founding retreat would start during APSys workshop (11th July evening after the workshop banquet).

The basic format is like this:

  • Form a “club” with faculties from several research groups, invitation only. The faculties are the young working horses, instead of already established.
  • Every half year, one of the club member will be the host of the 1day event.
  • aculties take their senior students, and MSRA research team (in most cases the entire team) will join for a one day retreat.
  • Opportunistically, we will invite one external senior researchers (not necessarily from any of the members).
  • The goal is brainstorm and plan on works that will push this small community to reach for an ambitious and yet achievable milestones. For the system discipline, it would something like SOSP/OSDI/ASPLOS papers. Ideally, this is to promote collaboration among the members (whether with MSRA or not is not an issue at all).
  • As you are a pioneer researcher in system-related community, we would like to invite you to join this club and attend the first retreat.

Thank you very much
