GT Computing Displays Expertise at Parallel Computing Conference

Georgia Tech professors and researchers converged on the windy city of Chicago for the 30th Annual IEEE International Parallel and Distributed Processing Symposium (IPDPS), held May 23-27.   

IPDPS is devoted to parallel computing, and School of Computational Science and Engineering (CSE) Chair David Bader and CSE Professor Srinivas Aluru, both former IPDPS program chairs, continued their involvement by serving as steering committee members and program committee members for this year’s event.

Bader gave a keynote address, titled “Massive-scale Streaming Analytics,” during the Graph Algorithms Building Blocks (GABB) workshop. Furthermore, Bader and Aluru also presented new research during the High Performance Computational Biology (HiCOMB) workshop. Associate Professor Richard Vuduc discussed new research and served on two International Workshop on Automatic Performance Tuning (iWAPT) committees.

Ph.D. students Jammula Nagakishore, Indranil Roy, and Vipin Sachdeva released new research as well, contributing to the CSE’s strong graduate student involvement. Additionally, recent CSE Ph.D. graduate Xing Liu (CSE, ’15), a research staff member at IBM T. J. Watson Research Center, presented his latest findings. In all, the College of Computing team presented five papers spanning a variety of topics from algorithmic techniques to reconfigurable computing.

Faculty attending the IPDPS from the College of Computing included (unless otherwise noted, all faculty are CSE):
