Four EECS student researchers have been awarded at SC20, the International Conference for High Performance Computing, Networking, Storage, and Analysis. This year’s conference was held virtually, November 9-19, 2020.
The SC Conference hosts the ACM Student Research Competition (SRC) showcasing original research from undergraduate and graduate students. This competition, sponsored by Microsoft, offers a unique forum for undergraduate and graduate students to present their original research before a panel of judges and attendees at well-known ACM-sponsored and co-sponsored conferences.
The ACM SRC Committee selects a set of winners based on poster content and presentation quality. All posters were presented through the Virtual Event Portal and a Q&A session was held with the researchers.
Nigel Tan, a second-year graduate student in Computer Science, received 3rd place in the ACM Graduate Student Research Competition with his poster on optimizing Vector Particle-in-Cell simulations.
Senior Clark Hathaway and junior Sebastian Mobo, both in Computer Science, received 3rd place in the ACM Undergraduate Student Research Competition with their poster presenting a framework for linking urban traffic and vehicle emissions in smart cities.
Ian Lumsden, senior undergraduate when he submitted the poster and now first year-graduate student in Computer Science, received first place in the ACM Undergraduate Student Research Competition with his poster on enabling graph-based profiling analysis using Hatchet.
Congratulations to all of these students!
