Click is a framework developed by Eddie Kohler at MIT for constructing flexible, configurable, and fast routers out of small, reusable packet processing modules called elements. To create a router, a directed graph of these elements is formed using a special scripting language. Packets are then routed by sending them through the graph. In an operating system, these graphs may either run at user level, or installed as a Linux (FreeBSD soon) kernel module. This allows for extensive experimentation with network protocols without having to recompile the kernel, and provides portability for code which has traditionally been very tightly tied to a particular kernel.

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.
