   Abstract:

   The use of Linux as a key tool in advanced operating systems research
   has proven to be invaluable in a number of recent projects. This talk
   will describe my research at Cornell University on the U-Net project,
   which allows user applications to directly access network interfaces
   for low-latency and high-bandwidth communication over ATM and Fast
   Ethernet. Our ability to freely enhance, instrument, and even
   circumvent the Linux kernel enabled this research to explore the
   design space of such network interfaces using modern PC hardware and
   without the hindrance of source-code licenses. I'll describe some of
   the cunning hacks used in the U-Net system and talk about the lessons
   we've learned using Linux in this context.

   This is an informal talk meant to turn people on to Linux hacking and
   O/S research --- no previous experience necessary!

   The conference will be intended in english.
