OSDI '20 Mentorship

Website Maintenance Alert

Due to scheduled maintenance, the USENIX website will not be available on Saturday, April 13, from 12:00 am–12:30 am Pacific Daylight Time (UTC-7). We apologize for the inconvenience.

If you are trying to register for NSDI '24 or register for PEPR '24, please complete your registration before or after this time period.


OSDI is organizing a mentoring scheme this year, modified for the virtual setting. Like at SOSP 2019, the mentoring scheme is designed to give student attendees a chance to get to know a few other people at the conference, and a chance to receive feedback on their research and other advice from a senior member of the community. Due to the virtual nature of OSDI '20, we feel that it will be especially important for students to meet other members of the community in this setting.

Student mentees will be paired with faculty/postdoc mentors. The mentors will be responsible for meeting with their mentees before the conference in a small group (2–3 mentees and the mentor) via Zoom or another video conferencing system, and may follow-up with another check-in meeting during the conference.
