Georgia Tech's Wan Named Champion of ACM SIGBED Student Research Competition

Congratulations to C-BRIC student Zishen Wan! Wan of the Georgia Tech School of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) was named champion of the ACM Student Research Competition (SRC).
The ACM SRC is the main student research competition for students to present their original research at well-known ACM-sponsored conferences. There are two rounds of competition, and the panel of judges and attendees will review the works based on scientific novelty, practical impact, and presentation. ACM Special Interest Group on Embedded Systems (SIGBED) especially focuses on the real-time, embedded, and cyber-physical systems community.
Wan is recognized for his innovation in hardware and systems for autonomous machine computing to advance their performance, efficiency, resilience, and robustness. Zishen has general research interests in computer architecture and VLSI, with a focus on building efficient and reliable hardware and systems for next-generation autonomous machines–such as robots, drones, and unmanned vehicles–through algorithm-hardware co-design and emerging memory technologies.
Wan is a member of the Integrated Circuits and Systems Research Lab, led by Georgia Tech ECE Steve W. Chaddick School Chair and Professor Arijit Raychowdhury. Before that, he received an MS from Harvard University and BS from Harbin Institute of Technology, both in electrical engineering.
Wan received a Qualcomm Fellowship in 2022, CRNCH PhD Fellowship in 2022, the Best Paper Award from the IEEE/ACM Design Automation Conference (DAC) in 2020, and the Best Paper Award in IEEE Computer Architecture Letters (CAL) in 2020. To learn more about his work, visit Zishen’s webpage.
As the champion, Zishen will represent ACM SIGBED to participate in the 2023 ACM SRC Grand Finals. All grand finalists and supervisors will be invited to the Annual ACM Awards Banquet, where the Turing award is given.
