Santa Claus visits CSE Department


Santa Claus came from the North Pole a little early this year to visit the CSE Department. Santa stopped by to chat with Dr. Ian Parberry to find out who has been naughty or nice. Santa left with a big smile on his face so that is a good sign that everyone has been nice this year!

Happy Holidays to all in the CSE Department!

CSE Department Seminar by Dr. Krishna Kavi on November 19


Dr. Krishna Kavi, Professor in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering, will present a CSE Department Seminar on Friday, November 19, at 11:00 a.m. in the main department conference room, F223. His presentation is SDF - An Architectural Framework for Multicore Processors.

The topic of the seminar will be multicore and multithreaded architectures which have received considerable attention over the past few years. However, current implementations rely on conventional programming paradigms and require complex static or dynamic transformations of programs into concurrent threads. This requires either complex hardware to detect data and control hazards to reorder and issue multiple instructions, or complex compiler techniques.
