Tip of the hat to Bill Burns who caught a major typo that several of us missed - it is AUGUST 26th, not October 26th  this wednesday.

Subject: Project Caerus Kickoff

Caerus is an open-source project hosted within Open Infra Labs that aims to optimize the performance of analytics engines, such as Spark and Tensorflow, by enhancing the interactions between analytics engines and disaggregated data stores like S3 and Ceph. You can find the project manifesto at: https://gitlab.com/open-infrastructure-labs/caerus/-/blob/master/Manifesto.pdf.

Envisioned as a project with a close relationship between academic research and the software being developed, project Caerus aims to bridge the gap between theory and practice.

An initial discussion with a group of researchers is scheduled for Wednesday August 26th between 2 and 5pm in Boston ( 6:00 PM to 9 PM GMT).   All are welcome, particularly if you have requirements for this project or are interested in helping out.

Please reply to me (msd at bu.edu) with the word ATTEND (all caps) at the top of the email and I will forward a calendar invite.  This will allow us to plan  for the attendance.

The agenda is:
2:00 - 3:00 Project Caerus: Vision, Scope, and Opportunities (Hui Lei, Theodoros Gkountouvas)
3:00 - 4:00 Related Work at BU and NEU (Orran Krieger, Peter Desnoyers, et al.)
4:00 - 5:00 Open Discussion on Research and Development Plan (all)
