|Congratulations to Angen Zheng, for his poster: Skew-Resistant Graph Partitioning was recently accepted by ICDE2017|
|Prof. Panos K. Chrysanthis was a guest speaker at the Software Seminar of the University of Michigan's Computer Science Department on December 19, 2016. He discussed the issue of Data-driven Serendipity Navigation in Urban Places.|
|Congratulations to Xiaoyu and Samanvoy for their EDBT 2017 Demonstration: In Search for Relevant, Diverse and Crowdscreen Points of Interests|
|Congratulations to Angen and Xiaoyu for their IEEE BigData 2016 papers: ARGO: Architecture-Aware Graph Partitioning and REQUEST: A Scalable Framework for Interactive Construction of Exploratory Queries|
The new School of Computing and Information has just been approved by the University of Pittsburgh Board of Trustees. Starts operations July 1, 2017; first students admitted Fall 2017.
|Prof. Chrysanthis and Prof. Labrinidis, together with colleagues from the School of Engineering (Prof. Peyman Givi, PI) and the Math Department (Prof. William Layton) received new research funding from the National Science Foundation for their project entitled "Appraisal of Subgrid Scale Closures in Reacting Turbulence via DNS Big Data." The project will employ a range of strategies and computational tools for utilizing DNS data to appraise the performance of large eddy simulation (LES) predictions in turbulent combustion. The study will pave the way for LES to become the primary means of predictions for future design and manufacturing of combustion systems, while building a data sharing infrastructure, and providing educational and outreach programs to students at all levels.
