During Red Hat Research Days, researchers, Red Hatters, technologists, and students come together to discuss exciting new research developments. These developments will change the way we build and use computers, clouds, and the crucial data we entrust to those systems. Animated conversations in and around Research Days often turn into new projects with industry and academic researchers. 

This year, as we all collaborate remotely, Research Days will also go virtual. We’re planning to expand Research Days in the United States to include a series of conversations between researchers and Red Hat experts that will give remote participants a deeper look into the work that’s highlighted for the event. Our hope is that these conversations will capture the excitement and challenge of exploring new research in depth, while giving participants a chance to share questions and new ideas for collaborations on other days. Schedules for these fall conversations and more details on the September 22, 2020, agenda will be shared on the Red Hat Research website (research.redhat.com). For a preview of one of the Research Days topics, see the interview in this issue with Mercè Crosas and James Honaker of Harvard discussing differential privacy and open, reproducible data repositories.

Research Days discussions and presentations will include experts from many different universities and research groups around the United States. (Research Day Europe, https://research.redhat.com/blog/events/research-day-brno-2020/, held in January, largely covered European work.) This year, we’re exploring research to improve privacy and security, make experimentation and system execution more reproducible, and enhance the performance of cloud systems. Researchers from Boston University, Harvard, Columbia, Yale, Carnegie Mellon, North Carolina State University, University of California–Santa Cruz, University of Illinois–Champaign-Urbana, and the University of Chicago will be participating, along with several Red Hat experts.
