I spent this week putting the final touches on the poster abstract and then successfully submitted it to the Grace Hopper portal. I found the experience of writing a poster abstract very informative in terms of how to organize and present data, summarize research methods, explain results, referencing prior work and other research papers and more. It was an interesting look into the other side of scientific research that isn’t just about doing experiments, but rather effectively presenting your ideas to others.
In addition, we also discussed attending the 12th USENIX Symposium on Networked Systems Design and Implementation (NSDI 2015 ) conference in Oakland, CA. My next step is to write a essay to apply for the travel grant for NSDI.
