Yi Chen --- There are vast collections of data that are structured or semi-structured, such as databases, social networks, workflows in business and scientific domains, as well as parsed documents obtained by natural language processing. The rich meta-information in such data sources holds immense promises for achieving high-…

Vagelis Hristidis --- As the amount of available data increases, the problem of information discovery becomes more pressing. The most successful search applications today are the general purpose Web search engines and the well-structured database query engines (e.g., SQL). Directly applying these two search models to specific…

Tamar Shinar --- Physically-based simulation has become an important tool for a broad range of applications, including special effects for movies and games, virtual surgery, and computational biomechanics.  In this talk, I will describe several simulation techniques for various solid and fluid phenomena, including rigid and soft…

Huamin Wang --- Although physically based animation is widely used to produce high-quality visual effects for movies and games nowadays, its computational and memory cost is still notoriously high, especially for real-time graphics and visualization applications. How can we make animations more realistic and more efficient at the…

Daisy Zhe Wang --- In the past few years, the number of applications that need to process large-scale data has grown remarkably. The data driving these applications is often uncertain, as is the analysis, which often involves probabilistic modeling and inference. Examples include sensor-based monitoring, information extraction and…

Uri Zwick ---  The *simplex* algorithm is among the most widely used algorithms for solving  *linear programs* in practice. Most *deterministic* pivoting rules are  known, however, to require an exponential number of steps to solve some linear programs.  No  non-polynomial lower bounds were known, prior to this work, for   *…

Walt Scacchi --- There is widespread interest in the development and use of decentralized systems and virtual world environments as possible new places for engaging in collaborative work activities. Similarly, there is widespread interest in stimulating new technological innovations that enable people to come together through…
