It is already Jan. 5th, 2018. A little bit late but not too late for summarizing 2017 and setting goals for 2018.

Summary – 2017


It could be summarized as Five First and One Exam

  • First second-author paper: It is a very helpful and useful experience to work with fellow student, especially I’m pretty new to system research.
  • First system paper: The amazing maat paper. I feel very strong about that.
  • First system conference: SOSP-17, life-changing journey, where I found new passion and calling.
  • First rejection: Life is always good, although our paper got rejected.
  • First my own research project in Ph.D: Looking back, It is very hard when I need to figure out what I’m going to do myself. And I did not make any progress in about three months. Things got better gradually.
  • Qual. Exam: Becoming a Ph.D. candidate.
