USENIX Annual Technical Conference, USENIX ATC 2016


Title/Authors Title Research Artifacts
[?] A research artifact is any by-product of a research project that is not directly included in the published research paper. In Computer Science research this is often source code and data sets, but it could also be media, documentation, inputs to proof assistants, shell-scripts to run experiments, etc.
