(April 2018) Memorable Paper Award and a Runner-Up Recognition at NVMW 2018

We have received the inaugural Memorable Paper Award at the Non-Volatile Memories Workshop (NVMW) in the area of devices, coding, and information theory on March 13th, 2018, for our paper titled “A Three-Stage Approach for Designing Non-Binary Spatially-Coupled Codes for Flash Memories,” and authored by A. Hareedy, H. Esfahanizadeh, and L. Dolecek. Our other work titled “Order Optimal Permutation Codes in the Generalized Cayley Metric,” by S. Yang, C. Schoeny, and L. Dolecek was recognized as a runner-up in the same category.

(Oct 2017) Best paper award at CASES 2017.

We have won another best paper award (5th paper award in under 2 years!).

This one is for the joint work with Prof. Gupta and his students on new methods (including novel context-dependent ECC methods) for low-cost IoT devices. The paper titled “Low cost memory fault tolerance for IoT devices,” and is authored by Mark Gottscho, Irina Alam, Clayton Schoeny, Lara Dolecek, and Puneet Gupta.

(Oct 2017) New papers and presentations at ISIT, FMS, Allerton, Asilomar, and ITW

Prof. Lara presents our latest research on spatially coupled codes for storage at ISIT in June; Homa then presents our latest results on spatially coupled codes for Flash the Annual Flash Memory Summit in August.

Fred presents new research results on coding for machine learning data at Allerton.

Alex presents new research results on in-memory computing and Clayton presents new results on coding for DNA storage; both at Asilomar.

Prisca presents new research results on coding over permutations, Ahmed presents new research results on SC codes for storage, and Clayton presents new research results on unequal message protection for memories; all three at ITW.
