In case you missed it, CSE had quite a productive summer! Here are a few highlights:  
  • CSE continued its strong summer showing at the 30th Annual IEEE International Parallel and Distributed Processing Symposium (IPDPS) in Chicago, May 23-27. CSE Chair David Bader and Professor Srinivas Aluru were among some of the symposium's leadership this year. Other CSE faculty members, including Associate Professor Rich Vuduc, and CSE alumni, such as Xing Liu (CSE, ’15), led workshops and presented new research findings.
 
  • Professor Srinivas Aluru and Senior Research Scientist Renata Afi Rawlings-Gosskeep were featured story in the Georgia Tech Alumni Magazine, where the two discussed the value and application of "Big Data" and the recently awarded NSF Big Data Hub South.
 
  • July was full of more than just fireworks, as Georgia Tech officially launched its newest Interdisciplinary Research Institute (IRI) – The Institute for Data Engineering and Science (IDEaS) – naming Professor Srinivas Aluru ​as executive co-director. Meanwhile in Washington D.C., Chair David Bader met with a cohort of fellow computational and computer scientist at the NSCI Anniversary Workshop to discuss the United States's supercomputing future.
 
  • To close out the fun in the sun, CSE displayed a dominant presence at the 2016 ACM SIGKDD Conference. As mentioned earlier, Assistant Professors Bistra Dilkina and Polo Chau and a team of DSSG Atlanta fellows' paper, “Firebird: Predicting Fire Risk and Prioritizing Fire Inspections in Atlanta," was named runner-up for the 2016 SIGKDD's “Best Student Paper Award.” In addition, other CSE faculty members, such as Assistant Professor​ Le Song, presented new research or helped organize conference workshops.
