Dr. Qi Zhu --- Cars, airplanes, buildings, robots … in many domains, distributed embedded systems have become pervasive, where control tasks implemented in embedded software are deployed onto distributed hardware platforms. The design complexity of these systems is growing rapidly due to the increase of their scale, functionality…

Bir Bhanu --- Video Bioinformatics is an NSF sponsored Interdisciplinary Graduate Education, Research and Training (IGERT) program at UCR. The vision of the program is to integrate expertise from the life sciences, computer science, electrical engineering, and bioengineering to enable breakthrough capabilities in understanding…

Victoria Stodden --- Scientific computation is emerging as absolutely central to the scientific method, but the prevalence of very relaxed practices is leading to a credibility crisis in many scientific fields. It is impossible to verify most of the results that computational scientists present at conferences and in papers today.…

Ram Huggahalli --- The traditional approach to increasing the compute density of servers involves growing the size of a coherent domain by adding more cores within a CPU socket in each generation and connecting 2-4 CPUs using coherent interconnects.  An alternative approach is emerging in the industry.  Smaller and cheaper CPUs…

Cristina Nita-Rotaru --- Wireless networks offer increased coverage by using multi-hop communication. This architecture makes services more vulnerable to internal attacks coming from  compromised nodes that behave arbitrarily to disrupt the network, also referred to as Byzantine attacks. Traditional secure routing protocols that…

Jernej Barbic --- Fast deformable objects are very useful for haptic rendering, where high simulation update rates (e.g., 1000 Hz) are required to maintain device stability. However, in order to simulate two rigid or deformable objects in contact with 6-DoF haptic feedback, it is also necessary to resolve contact between the two…

Paul Kry --- In this talk I will present some of my recent work on the animation of human motion, deformation, and contact, where the common theme is the creation or use of approximate models.  I will first present work on capturing and reusing interaction (both motion and forces) for simulated grasping and manipulation, and show…

Eitan Grinspun --- Special effects such as explosions and lifelike depictions of imaginary characters are made possible by mathematical and computational models that capture qualitative, characteristic behavior of a mechanical system. This is scientific computing with a twist. I will describe the process by which we derive and…

Professor Eamonn Keogh --- Malaria kills one million children each year and sickens perhaps 500 million others. Given malaria’s impact on humankind, entomologists, epidemiologists and biologists are frantically working on ideas to mitigate or control malaria. However to date computer science has had relatively little impact in…

EBUII 138
Tudor Dumitras --- The security-related data sets that are available today are insufficient for answering many challenging questions or for rigorous experimental research. For example, little is known about the origins and prevalence of zero-day attacks, because the existing data on malware dissemination does not reach back in…
