Real-Time Systems Reading Group

This is a weekly reading group. We plan to discuss papers from recent conferences or the state-of-the-art in one specific area over a span of few weeks. Our current area of focus is papers from the recently concluded ASPLOS 2017, EuroSys 2017, or CPS Week 2017.

We generally meet on Tuesdays at 2:00 PM in room number 207 (Kaiserslautern). Folks from Saarbrücken can join through video conference.
