On Monday, November 11th at 18:30, Haifux will gather to hear a talk by Gernot Heiser:

    The Do-S and Don’t-S of Benchmarking


A thorough and convincing evaluation is a core part of every systems paper, and generally involves some form of benchmarking. In my experience as a reviewer of hundreds of papers, there are a number of things people frequently get wrong in their evaluation. I have distilled those into a list of systems benchmarking crimes, most of which are sufficient reason to reject a paper. I will discuss those crimes and how to avoid them.


We meet in Taub building, room 6. For instructions see:

Attendance is free, and you are all invited!

Future lectures:
