Fun times at our first retreat!
March 28, 2017

It is hard to believe that it has been only two months since the first RISELab retreat. This retreat was the official kickoff for RISELab, and it feels like it was so long ago because we have been gaining momentum ever since. Faculty have given keynotes at Spark Summit and Strata, the top two big data events that occurred in the past two months. In addition, we have joined the 5G initiative led by Ericsson and Intel, released the first open source software package (Pywren), and published many papers, including two accepted NSDI papers listed below in this newsletter.

Given this flurry of events and the fact that our retreats happen just twice a year, we have decided to start a newsletter to provide you with timely progress updates of the lab. This is our first newsletter, which will be followed by many others. We encourage you to share it with your colleagues, and let us know of any feedback you might have to improve it!
Thank you for your continued support.
