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.

Prof. Lara has been awarded a new half a million $ NSF grant to study robust in-memory computing and fast storage access. This is a collaborative project supported by NSF and BSF (Israel), under which we will work closely with Israeli co-PI Prof. Yuval Cassuto of Technion.
We will present an invited paper on new context-dependent coding methods for on-chip memories at the upcoming ITW conference.
We will present an invited paper on new coding methods for DNA storage at the upcoming Asilomar conference.
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.
Prof. Lara will deliver a keynote at the upcoming The 7th Annual Henry Taub TCE Conference held at Technion, Haifa, Israel.
Fred is the recipient of the 2016-2017 Outstanding PhD Dissertation in Signals & Systems Award. Congratulations Fred on another outstanding achievement!
Prof. Lara Dolecek’s comprehensive survey on channel coding methods for non-volatile memories will appear in an upcoming issue of the Proceedings of the IEEE. Paper is
L. Dolecek and Y. Cassuto, “Coding for non-volatile memories: recent advances and new opportunities”.
Proceedings of the IEEE is the most highly-cited general interest journal in electrical engineering and computer science: link here
Prof. Lara Dolecek will be giving an invited talk at Caltech on some of our recent research early next month.
