Organized by Prof. Yitzhak (Tsahi) Birk and Prof. Ron Meir

You are kindly invited to:
Graduate-Student Research Symposium: Computer Engineering
Thursday, December 2, 2010, 14:00 - 17:40
Auditorium 2nd floor, Electrical Engineering Building, Technion

Graduate-Student Research Mini-Talk Symposium:  Computer Engineering

Electrical Engineering Dept., Technion

Thursday Dec. 2, 2010 14:00-17:30

This is a unique event, aimed at acquainting the audience with the extensive ongoing activity in the department in the general area of “systems” (as in “computer systems”), including both experimental and theoretical work. Topics include parallel and distributed systems, architecture, computer networks, VLSI, storage, Network on Chip, logic design, asynchronous circuits and more.  Basically, if it isn’t signal processing, doesn’t use transforms or differential equations, is not Physics-centric, and is not computer graphics, machine learning and a few others, it is within the scope. The symposium will comprise some 20 very short talks, each by a different graduate student about his/her work. The talks are intended for the non-specialist.

In addition to offering exposure to the ongoing work, this is also a unique opportunity to become acquainted with the graduate students and their areas of research.  For outsiders, it is an opportunity to get to know us better. For our own graduate students and faculty members in all areas, it is an opportunity to learn a bit about many topics and to know what each of us is doing. Finally, this also offers undergraduate students a unique glimpse into the future.

All are invited, including those whose activity is not in the above areas.

 P.S.  If this succeeds, we are planning to hold two additional such events in different areas later this year.
