Clayton Schoeny has won the Best Dissertation Award in Signals and Systems, ECE Department, UCLA, capping an amazing PhD work with several previous honors and recognitions, including QiF Prize, DYF award, and several best paper awards. Congratulations Clayton! We wish Clayton continued success in his future endeavors as a Data Scientist.
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.
Our paper “Signal Processing and Coding Techniques for 2-D Magnetic Recording: An Overview,” by S. S. Garani, L. Dolecek, J. Berry, F. Sala, and B. Vasic will appear in the Proceedings of the IEEE.
We received a Best-of-SELSE paper award for the paper “Parity++: Lightweight Error Correction for Last Level Caches” by I. Alam, C. Schoeny, L. Dolecek, and P. Gupta. UCLA press release is here:
Our team will present two results at the upcoming NVMW in San Diego: 1) new results by Ahmed and Homa on spatially coupled codes, and 2) new results on permutation codes by Prisca and Clayton.
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.
