Issues and Challenges in Extensible Operating Systems
Division of Engineering and Applied Science, Harvard University

Extensible operating systems have become one of the hottest fads for the past several years. Unfortunately, those of us designing extensible systems spent the first few years believing that the extension technology was the critical component in the design of such systems. Now that several prototype systems exist, it has become clear that the important research questions revolve around resource management, arbitration between competing entities, and the utility of such extensible systems.

In this talk, I will discuss extensible operating systems and the challenges in making these systems real. Using the VINO operating system as an example, I will discuss approaches to resource sharing in extensible systems and our early efforts in automatically identifying those components for which extensibility offers the greatest promise.

Refreshments will be served immediately before the talk at 3:30pm.
Hosted by Elizabeth Bradley.

The Department holds colloquia throughout the Fall and Spring semesters. These colloquia, open to the public, are typically held on Thursday afternoons, but sometimes occur at other times as well. If you would like to receive email notification of upcoming colloquia, subscribe to our Colloquia Mailing List. If you would like to schedule a colloquium, see Colloquium Scheduling.

Sign language interpreters are available upon request. Please contact Stephanie Morris at least five days prior to the colloquium.
