Michael Swift - "Virtual Memory in the 21st century" [Mandatory]

Page-based virtual memory, which carves memory into fixed-size pages, forms the basis for all modern operating systems by providing the illusion of a huge memory space for running programs. Yet, since its development in the early 1960s, computing has diversified and memory capacities have grown by orders of magnitudes. I will talk about why virtual memory endures today, the challenges facing virtual memory in modern systems and new directions in retaining its enduring benefits.


The talk will take place on Wednesday May 8, at 12:00pm CET in Room 101 (Palazzina D, Viale Regina Elena 295).
Attendance is mandatory for PhD students.
