Location: CSA Seminar Hall (Room No. 254, First Floor)

Faculty Advisor:

With proliferation of commodity multicore systems, low cost synchronization is critical for scaling. The read-copy-update (RCU) mechanism has been used for this purpose since the last 4 decades. We analyse this and a few other related mechanisms, and discuss our work in this context (such as memory management, virtualization and fault tolerance)
