Yihan's research focuses on designing scalable parallel algorithms with both strong theoretical guarantees and high performance in practice. The project aims to build theoretical foundations to achieve simple and practical parallel algorithms.
The award is for "Dynamic Time Warping Averaging of Time Series allows Faster and more Accurate Classification" which Dr. Keogh wrote with his student Yanping Chen and collaborators from Australia and France. This is the second 10-year highest-impact paper award that Dr. Keogh’s lab has won in recent years, with a 10-year highest-impact paper award...
The paper is “Matrix Profile XXIX: C22MP: Fusing catch22 and the Matrix Profile to Produce an Efficient and Interpretable Anomaly Detector”, by Sadaf Tafazoli, Yue Lu, Renjie Wu, Thirumalai Srinivas, Hannah Dela Cruz, Ryan Mercer, and Eamonn Keogh. Co-author Yue Lu will present the work in Shanghai, China in December.
In the recent International Symposium on Spatial and Temporal Data (SSTD'23), one of the prominent venues for spatial research, two papers from UCR were selected among the meeting's top 5 papers that will also be invited for a special journal issue.
CSE PhD Student Xin Zhang, advised by Prof. Eldawy, won second place at the prestigious ACM Student Research Competition (SRC) and was awarded the silver medal.

CSE professor Vassilis Tsotras and student Christina Pavlopoulou received the SIGMOD Research Highlight Award for their paper titled "Revisiting Runtime Dynamic Optimization for Join Queries in Big Data Management Systems".
A team consisting of CSE professor Zizhong Chen and PhD student Yujia Zhai, together with researchers from ByteDance and NVIDIA received best paper award at IPDPS 2023, one of the top conferences on parallel and distributed processing.
A team led by researchers at UCR and Yale reports the first high-quality nuclear genome sequence and assembly of the pathogen B. duncani. The team also determined the 3D genome structure of this pathogen that resembles Plasmodium falciparum, the malaria-causing parasite. CSE PhD student Chakravarty and CSE Prof. Lonardi led the effort.
The UCR Programming teams attended the regional competition of the International Collegiate Programming Contest (ICPC). In a tight competition among many excellent universities such as UCLA, UCSD, UCI, USC, and Caltech, UCR teams ranked as high as 12th.
UCR CS students Xiaojun Dong and Letong Wang, and faculty members Yan Gu and Yihan Sun, won the best paper award at ACM SIGPLAN Principles and Practice of Parallel Programming (PPoPP) 2023, one of the top conferences on parallel computing and programming.
