Ioana Ciornei will present her work on improving the efficiency of the Ceph distributed filesystem. Cristina Moraru will present her work on getting the HMC5843 3-axis Digital Compass driver out of staging, and on developing the TH06 and MAX5487 IIO drivers. Ksenija Stanojević will present her work on reorganizing the mxs-lradc staging driver. Janani Ravichandran will present her work on memory allocation latency tracing. Finally, Daniel Baluta will be available to present a mentor's perspective.
