CALL FOR PARTICIPATION
Fourth NICTA Software Systems Summer School

learn and obtain feedback from experts. Topics include operating systems, hypervisors,
virtual machines, databases, compilers, language implementation, memory management and
Research students may apply for participation by submitting a summary (of no more than
half a page) on their research interests, indicating how it overlaps with the topic of the
summer school. They may also indicate that they would like to give a short talk, although
the organisers will only select a small number of student presentations. All attending
students will be able to present a poster, and are strongly encouraged to use this
opportunity to get feedback from world leaders!.
We will also consider submissions from final-stage undergraduate students, post-docs or
academic staff, provided they explain the benefits they expect from attendance.Supervisors
of attending students are particularly welcome to attend.
All submitted material must fit on a single A4 page.
Attendance is free, but subject to invitation based on the submitted abstract. We will
rarely reject an application from a student. Registration includes free lunches and coffee
breaks during the summer school, as well as a dinner on the evening of the first day.
