November 2011: Ignacio Laguna, a doctoral student in Purdue University's School of Electrical and Computer Engineering, was awarded a George Michael Memorial High Performance Computing Fellowship during the Supercomputing Conference in Seattle in November 2011. The award recognizes Laguna's work, which aims to detect and pinpoint bugs in simulations running on large supercomputers. He is a student of Saurabh Bagchi, an associate professor of electrical and computer engineering. Laguna has worked with scientists at one of the U.S. Department of Energy's labs, the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, developing his techniques for simulations running on large supercomputers and applying them to glitches encountered by scientists in their applications. The fellowship honors exceptional doctoral students who have shown potential for impact in high-performance computing research..


September 2011: Saurabh starts his sabbatical at IBM Research in Austin. He is working on a new project that brings mobile computing together with enterprise compute environments for achieving various tasks, such as, system management and information dissemination.


August 2011: DCSL welcomes a new member, Paul Wood, to the group. Paul graduated from Tennessee Technological University in 2010 with a BSEE, and has worked in the utility and food and beverage industry as an electrical design and controls engineer. He is currently pursuing a PhD with research in the areas of sensor networks and embedded systems.


July 15, 2011: Nina has successfully defended her Masters thesis titled "CarChat: A Vehicular Wireless Ad-Hoc Network Data Dissemination Protocol." She is now headed to Google in Mountain View. [Abstract]


July 2011: We have a paper in Sensys 11. This is work by Matt on hardware-assisted debugging of an embedded node without causing any perturbation to the application running on the node. [pdf]


July 12, 2011: Saurabh gave a presentation on recent work in our group on debugging in large-scale systems at Microsoft Research, Redmond. [Slides]


June 14, 2011: Our work with Lawrence Livermore National Lab (LLNL) on scaling up our DSN 10 tool for error detection and bug localization to large-scale clusters has been accepted to the Supercomputing '11 conference. [Abstract] [Pdf]


May 2011: DCSL member, Nina Baker, will be joining Google in September after finishing her Masters.


May 2011: Bowen has received a travel award for attending HPDC and presenting his paper there.


February 21-22, 2011: DCSL played host to about 25 researchers in dependability from all over the world for the DSN Program Committee meeting. A panel discussion was organized on February 22 on emerging challenges in dependable computing.
