- Clayton Schoeny and Ahmed Hareedy are both selected as the recipients of the prestigious UCLA Dissertation Year Fellowship.
- Ahmed Hareedy is selected to receive Excellence in Teaching Award from the EE Department for outstanding performance as a TA. This highly competitive award is given annually to only a single course TA in the department.
- Fred Sala will augment his best dissertation award with another honor: Fred is selected as one of only two marshals for the campus wide UCLA Doctoral Ceremony. This honor is bestowed upon students with truly outstanding academic records.
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.
We received a best student paper award from the IEEE Data Storage Society for the paper titled “Correcting Grain Errors in Magnetic Media”and authored by Ryan Gabrys, Eitan Yaakobi, and Lara Dolecek. The paper appeared in May 2015 issue of IEEE Transactions on Information Theory.
Prof. Lara Dolecek presented a tutorial on coding for error-efficient computing at the SNF/EPFL-sponsored International Exploratory Workshop on
Theory and Practice for Error-Efficient Computing Systems.

We had 2 oral presentations at the Non-Volatile Memories Workshop:
Ahmed Hareedy presented the work on “Non-Binary LDPC Code Optimization for Modern Storage Systems,” by A. Hareedy, C. Lanka, and L. Dolecek.
Shahroze Kabir presented the work on “Modeling the effects of radiation induced soft errors on LDPC decoding,” by F. Sala, C. Schoeny, S. Kabir, D. Divsalar, and L. Dolecek.
Prof. Lara gives an invited talk at ITA on our group’s research on reliable inference under noisy computations and implications on radiation-hardened LDPC decoders.
Ahmed Hareedy has been selected to present his PhD research in the esteemed Graduation Day session at ITA 2017. For more information, see here http://ita.ucsd.edu/workshop/17/talks.php#talk2
