11/11/2014 - 18:00 The National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA) and the CompGen initiative are sponsoring two Spring 2015 fellowships for graduate students working in biology, bioinformatics, computational biology, or biologically-relevant computational science at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
11/06/2014 - 18:00 The conference aims to connect local businesses and researchers with the aim of innovating and creating new economic opportunities in the community.
11/06/2014 - 18:00 Since CSL professor Wen-mei Hwu co-founded MulticoreWare six years ago, the company has grown from a small startup to the leading provider of GPU-accelerated software and GPU-computing infrastructure software, used by such tech giants as Amazon and Google.
11/05/2014 - 18:00 A team led by Professor Yoram Bresler has won an almost $950,000 grant from the National Science Foundation to develop more efficient algorithms and computational methods for analyzing Big Data and extracting useful information.
11/04/2014 - 18:00 J. Gary Eden was awarded a $917,744 grant from the Air Force Office of Scientific Research (AFOSR) to fund his purchase of laser and gas analytical equipment. He plans to use this equipment to continue his research of microplasma devices.
11/03/2014 - 18:00 With a tight gubernatorial race in Illinois, voters are being bombarded today with TV ads, yard signs and robo calls. But what if candidates could use their campaign dollars to subtlety influence your vote on social media? It might as simple as paying to promote the status of a friend who just voted or downplaying negative status posts on Facebook.
11/03/2014 - 18:00 University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign Professor Wen-mei W. Hwu has been named the 2014 recipient of the IEEE Computer Society B. Ramakrishna Rau Award for his work in Instruction-Level Parallelism.
11/02/2014 - 18:00 It's tense in the situation room. A cyber attack on the electrical grid in New York City has plunged Manhattan into darkness on a day that happens to be the coldest in the year. Concurrently, the cellular phone network has been attacked, silencing smartphones and sowing confusion and panic. A foreign power has claimed responsibility for the attacks and says more are coming. Your job is to look at geopolitical factors, intelligence feeds, military movements and clues in cyberspace to predict what may be happening next. Your goal is to make a recommendation to the President.
10/26/2014 - 19:00 While the cost of data storage has gone down in recent years, the difficulty of finding a storage medium that is nonvolatile, durable and large enough to meet today’s big data needs has remained.
10/21/2014 - 19:00 When an energy company sustains a cyber attack, control system operators must quickly identify, isolate and reroute around the affected network areas in order to maintain critical energy delivery functions. A global view of all communication flows would make that task much easier, but unfortunately, such an overview map isn’t available to the energy sector at this time.
10/20/2014 - 19:00 When Hurricane Sandy struck the east coast in late October 2012, the “superstorm” disrupted traffic in New York City for more than five days, but the evacuation proceeded relatively efficiently with only minor delays, according to transportation researchers at the University of Illinois.
