HiLT Lab hosts second round of NACLO

On January 28, the HiLT Lab hosted 35 high school students for NACLO, the North American Computational Linguistics Olympiad. Six students from the UNT test site scored in the top 10% of the U.S. and were invited to a second round on March 10, 2016. Those students are (back row, L-R) Wyatt Reeves, Paschal High School in Fort Worth, Hanjun Ryu, also from Paschal; and Eli Riggs, TAMS; and (front row, L-R) Sarah Freeman, TAMS; Eleanor Halbert, Denton High School; and Jocelyn Lo, Lovejoy High School.

NACLO is an educational competition in Computational Linguistics, the science of designing computer algorithms to solve linguistic problems. Dr. Rodney Nielsen supervised this event, along with HiLT Ph.D. students Nishitha Guntakandla and Natalie Parde, undergraduate lab assistant Erin Eversoll and CSE Staff member Genene Murphy.

Saraju Mohanty wins McGraw-Hill textbook award

Saraju P. Mohanty's textbook Nanoelectronic Mixed-Signal System Design has received the 2016 PROSE Award for best Textbook/Physical Sciences & Mathematics. The PROSE Awards are the annual American Publishers Awards for Professional & Scholarly Excellence and are organized by the PSP (Professional & Scholarly Publishing) division of the Association of American Publishers (AAP) to recognize the best works in professional and scholarly publishing. A complete list of all the winners can be found on the PROSE Awards website at here.

Dr. Saraju Mohanty Serves as the Chair of the Technical Committee on Very Large Scale Integration (TCVLSI)

Dr. Saraju Mohanty has been serving as the Chair of the Technical Committee on Very Large Scale Integration (TCVLSI) for the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE). Mohanty was appointed to this significant leadership role in 2014, and is already overseeing a league of "sister conferences" (such as ASAP, ISVLSI, ARITH, etc) sponsored by TCVLSI around the globe, and has also been funded by TCVLSI to attend the IEEE Panel of Conference Organizers in Glasgow, Scotland last summer. The committee Mohanty now chairs is aptly named: it focuses on integrating the design, computer-aided design, fabrication, application, and business aspects of very large-scale integration while accounting for both hardware and software. TCVLSI also sponsors conferences, special sessions, and workshops for the IEEE's Computer Science division, and in effect, serves as a quality control watchdog.

Mohanty is the author of 200 peer-reviewed journal articles and 3 books, including best-seller "Nanoelectronic Mixed-Signal System Design." With TCVLSI's funding and support, Mohanty has also initiated 12 student travel grants and 3 best paper awards.

Distinguished Speaker Seminar on March 4

The Department of Computer Science and Engineering welcomes Dr. Calvin Lin, Professor in Computer Science from the University of Texas at Austin, on Friday, March 4, 2016. His presentation will be on "Smarter Prediction Mechanisms in Computer Architecture".

Dr. Lin’s research interests are compilers, parallel computing and microarchitecture. His presentation will be held at 11:30 am in NTDP F223. Everyone is invited to attend!

Garima Bajwa finishes in the top 8 at the national 3MT® Competition

Congratulations to CSE Ph.D. student Garima Bajwa on finishing in the top 8 out of 38 students in the national Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) competition!

After Garima won the Toulouse Graduate Schools’ competition in November 2015, she presented her thesis “Neuro-Sign: NOT Just Another Vital Sign” at the Conference of Southern Graduate Schools annual meeting on February 20 in Charlotte, NC. Garima was a finalist and won $150 award. Garima was with Dr. Joseph Oppong, Professor of Geography and Associate Dean for Research and Professional Development at UNT’s Toulouse Graduate School, at the conference. Dr. Ram Dantu is Garima’s major professor. The winners were announced in this document from The Conference of Southern Graduate Schools.

CSE Doctoral Student advances to national Three Minute Thesis Competition

The HiLT Lab hosts NACLO 2016

The regional competition for high school students to participate in the North American Computational Linguistics Olympiad NACLO 2016 will take place on Thursday, January 28, 2016. The HiLT Lab in the UNT Department of Computer Science and Engineering will be hosting the competition. UNT’s NACLO enrollment is in the top five in North America, along with Stanford University, Carnegie Mellon University, Columbia University and University of Washington.

NACLO is an educational competition in Computational Linguistics, the science of designing computer algorithms to solve linguistic problems. It challenges students to develop strategies for tackling problems in real languages and formal symbolic systems. Dr. Rodney Nielsen, Associate Professor, and Genene Murphy, CSE Staff, will supervise this event, along with HiLT PhD students Nishitha Guntakandla and Natalie Parde and undergraduate lab assistant Erin Eversoll. A special thanks to Dr. Ian Parberry for allowing his lab to be used for the competition. More information is available at this HiLT Lab News & Events page.
