Learning Outcomes

The goal for the students is to learn how to critically read and study research papers, how to describe a paper in a report, and how to present it in a seminar. Under supervision, students will select one paper to study, contrast and compare with related work. This seminar aims to help students to gather in-depth knowledge of an advanced topic and develop the skills required to describe a complex problem from the operating systems area in the form of both a presentation and a written report.
