On April 15th Professors Chrysanthis and Pruhs represented a group of researchers in our department who study sustainable computing in the 16th Annual Coalition for National Science Funding Exhibition on Capitol Hill. The Exhibition is a showcase for prominent research supported by the National Science Foundation; it is attended regularly by Members of the U.S. Congress and their staff and White House leaders.
The Andrew Mellon Predoctoral Fellowship provides PhD. students approaching graduation with a year of support -- the winners of this award have shown remarkable ability and promise. We are fortunate to have two students in our department earn the 2010-2011 award: Ahmed Abousamra and our own Shenoda Guirguis. Congratulations to you both!
As part of our Department's 10th annual Computer Science Day, our group is honored to have received the following awards:
Shenoda Guirguis -- Research Competition Winner:
"Weaved Sharing of Aggregate Continuous Queries"
Professor Labrinidis was quoted prominently in Mike Cronin's article on smartphone use.
Two student members of our group have been awarded each an NSF travel grant to attend ICDE, present their poster and attend the Ph.D. workshop. The award covers all of the expenses. Congratulations to both of them!
Prof. Alexandros Labrinidis is elected Secretary/Treasurer of ACM SIGMOD, to serve a four-year term (July 2009 - June 2013). Congratulations, Alex!
Qinglan Li, a graduate student in the ADMT Lab, is the winner of the Poster Competition during GradExpo 2009. Her poster, entitled "User-Centric Annotation Management for Biological Data" was voted as best poster by a panel of judges from various other departments. Congratulations Qinglan!
More info about this work in our SSDBM 2008 paper.
This project is part of the Center for Modeling Pulmonary Immunity.
Come and visit us at the poster session of today's GradExpo, taking place at the William Pitt Union. Out group is participating this year with four posters. Here are the titles:
- Panickos Neophytou - Towards Continuous Workflow Enactment Systems
- Lory Al-Moakar, Christine Chung, Shenoda Guirguis, Panickos Neophytou - Auction-Based Admission Control of Continuous Queries
- Qinlan Li - User-Centric Annotation Management for Biological Data
- Alexander Connor - Nearest Neighbor Queries over Dynamic Graph Data
After getting tenure at the Department of Computer Science at the University of Pittsburgh, Alexandros went on a one term sabbatical in Greece.
