OSKI: Open Shared Kalendaring Infrastructure
Grad Student, Computer Science

OSKI (Open Shared Kalendaring Infrastructure) is a scalable, highly-available, and fault-tolerant service that provides Calendar Services for groups of people. OSKI is designed to work with both disconnected and connected devices. As an infrastructure, we designed OSKI to provide as rich set of mechanisms while minimizing the number of policies. In this presentation, I will discuss some groupware issues that guided the requirements for a group calendar application, as well as the overall design of a wide area system designed to work with disconnected devices.

BACTAC, the Beverage And Chips Tuesday Afternoon Colloquium, is a weekly forum run by graduate students. The goal is provide an informal setting in which anyone can (basically) present anything. In the past, we have had practice talks for conferences and job interviews, research reports, juggle lessons (!), student representative reports, internship discussions, an introduction to ergonomics, and "pay attention to this when you are going to look for job" discussions.

BACTAC is meant to be an informal and social event to promote the interaction among graduate students. BACTAC is typically held every Tuesday, at 3:30pm, in room ECOT 831. Free munchies and drinks are provided.

Please email Caleb Phillips for more information or if you want to be a speaker.
