Block Party: meetings of the Innovative Data Systems Reading Group

When and where: Tuesdays, 13:30-14:30pm, Shaffer 204E.

Google group:

Our reading group is an informal weekly get-together of all levels of researchers and students interested in data-intensive systems. Our meetings run throughout the semester as a chalk talk by a volunteer lead, alongside group-wide discussions on the paper's contributions and takeaways.

We welcome walk-ins from students and faculty, in addition to external talks from data-intensive application areas in industry and academia, and theoretical topics related to data.
