Welcome to Layer 9

Welcome to Layer 9, the group blog for the computer networking & systems research community. Next week is the 10th USENIX Symposium on Networked Systems Design and Implementation (NSDI ’13), where we plan to kickstart the blog as the nexus (perhaps the hub or backplane!) of the online hallway track.

Over time, we aim for the blog to evolve into a sort of Lambda the Ultimate for this community and an informal preprint service. If you have a new paper or piece of software to share, this is the place to announce it. If you have an interesting observation about other results in the field, this is definitely the place to post. Smaller results that may not warrant a full-blown research publication of their own? This is the place.

Membership is open to anyone in the computer networking and systems research community, broadly construed. Please email <signup at> to request an account.
