Hi all,

Here is this week's schedule:


  * Normal work schedule
  * 10:30am (SB233): Xi Yang's PhD defense -- An Integrated Data Access
    System for Big Computing [all students must attend]


  * Normal work schedule


  * Normal work schedule
  * 11am (SB233): Xu Yang's PhD Proposal [all students must attend]
  * 1pm (SB233): Sean Wallace's PhD Proposal [all students must attend]


  * Argonne Field Trip [all undergrads, including REU and BSMP, all REU
    mentors, and Jian]

Friday (at IIT):

  * Normal work schedule
  * 12:30pm: Lunch
  * 1:30pm: Group Meeting [all REU students]
  * 3:30pm: Day in the Life of a PhD Student [all students must attend]

Note that there are 3 PhD defense or proposals on Monday and Wednesday. 
I expect all students (undergrads, MS, and PhD students) in the BigDataX 
and DataSys groups to attend these presentations. These presentations 
will be in the general area of distributed systems and will give you a 
very good sense of what it takes to tackle a PhD dissertation. Please 
consult your REU mentors if you should attend. If you cannot attend 
these talks for any reason, please let me know.
