In case you missed it, CSE had a productive fall semester! Here are a few highlights:
  • In October, a number of CSE faculty attended Supercomputing 2016 (SC16), which featured multiple lectures and workshops led by GT Computing faculty members. In conjunction with the conference, CSE also released a video discussing Georgia Tech's efforts in high-performance computing. For a full breakdown of the conference, click here
  • During SC16, Professor Srinivas Aluru and Ph.D. students Patrick FlickChirag Jain, and Tony Pan earned the first-ever ACM 'Results Replicated' Badge for their awarding paper, A Parallel Connectivity Algorithm for De Bruijn Graphs in Metagenomic Applications. The same paper won the Best Paper award at SC15.
  • In November, CSE graduate students, with support from Asst. Professor Le Songwon a Best Paper award during the 2016 RecSys Conference. The paper focused on resolving the limitations of current online recommendation systems.
  • Last semester, CSE released its 2016 annual report, The Solutions Within, which highlighted its numerous accolades and research initiatives. The report also showcased CSE's vibrant and versatile students and alumni. To view CSE's 2016 Annual Report, click here
  • Last week, Professor Ümit Çatalyürek's lecture, Modern Computing – Cloud, Distributed, & High Performance, was featured on InsideHPC. You can watch the lecture here.

Austin Benson, Tools for Higher-Order Network Analysis

Tuesday, Feb. 14
Klaus Advanced Computing Bldg. 
Room 1116 East
11 a.m.

Austin Benson is a Ph.D. candidate at Stanford University in the Institute for Computational and Mathematical Engineering. His research focuses on data-driven methods for understanding complex systems and behavior, which spans network science, matrix computations, and modeling human behavior on the Web.

In this talk, Bensons will discuss several analyses based on higher-order connectivity patterns that he developed to gain new insights into network data. Specifically, he will introduce a motif-based clustering methodology and a new stochastic process for tenor data. Also, Bensons will show applications of higher-order analysis in several domains, including ecology, biology, transportation, and human communication.

School of Computational Science and Engineering Distinguished Lecture 

Jim Demmel, Communication Avoiding Algorithms for Linear Algebra and Beyond.

Thursday, Feb. 23
Klaus Advanced Computing Bldg. 
Room 1116 East
11 a.m.

James Demmel is the chair of the Computer Science Division and the Dr. Richard Carl Dehmel Distinguished Professor of Computer Science and Mathematics at the University of California at Berkeley. Over his 30-year career, he has received various awards, including the IPDPS Charles Babbage Award, IEEE Computer Society Sidney Fernbach Award, the ACM Paris Kanellakis Award, and numerous Best Paper prizes. 

In his talk, Demmel will discuss algorithms that reduce communication cost and show substantial speed improvements compared to their conventional counterparts. Additionally, Demmel will also talk about write-avoiding algorithms and show how to approach algorithms involving arbitrary loop nests and array accesses.
