Paper co-authored by two trinity students won best paper award
We are happy to report that a paper co-authored by two trinity students won the best paper award at the 24th IASTED Conference on Parallel and Distributed Computing and Systems in November 2012.
The paper is titled "An Efficient Out-of-Core Implementation of Block Cholesky Decomposition on a Multi-GPU System". The authors are Prof. Lin Cheng, Philip Cho (2015), Jiajia Zhao (2015) and Prof. Peter Yoon from the Computer Science department. The paper went through a rigorous review process. Five expert reviews are given to each paper.
When the conference organizers found out that the paper was co-authored by two undergraduate students, they seemed truly impressed by the high caliber of our students and the college’s commitment to student research. Jiajia’s work was a part of her ISP research, and Philip’s research was funded by FRC SRP. Prof. Lin Cheng and Prof. Peter Yoon have certainly enjoyed working with these talented and committed students.
Please join them in congratulating Jiajia and Philip for their remarkable achievement.
