Workshop on Computer Systems (WoCS), 2018 was organized from 8th – 9th December at Ashoka University. The purpose of the workshop was to provide a forum where students and researchers, working on problems related to computer systems can come together and discuss the latest developments in the field, as well as present their own research. One of the other purposes of the workshop was to disseminate knowledge on advanced topics, current state of the art, as well as recent industrial developments in the field of computer systems.
A number of eminent speakers from academia and industry were invited to present their research. In addition, the workshop also has participation from students from outside Ashoka University. Applications for student participation were solicited via an open call, and approximately 30 students from outside were selected to attend. Few students who attended the workshop were from nearby institutions (IIIT-Delhi, GGSIP Delhi, IIT Ropar, NIT Kurukshetra and LPU). However, quite a few came from far away places as well (IIT Gandhinagar, IISER-Bhopal, IIEST-Shibpur, NIIT University – Neemrana, IIT-Dharwad and IIT-Kanpur). Overall, 21 students participated in all the sessions, whereas the peak attendance was around 35 (including students from Ashoka).
