Prof. John and Students Selected for IEEE Micro Top Picks Magazine

Tuesday, November 2, 2010 - 7:00pm

A publication from UT ECE professor Lizy John and UT ECE students Jeff Stuecheli and Dimitris Kaseridis has been selected for the IEEE Micro magazine's Top Picks issue. At the beginning of every year, IEEE Micro magazine publishes some of the most significant research papers in the computer architecture society from the previous year. The selection is based on the publications' novelty and long-term impact, recognizing the papers that have the potential to influence the work of computer architects for years to come.

The paper, entitled The Virtual Write Queue: Coordinating DRAM and Last-level Cache Policies, initially published in the proceedings of the 37th International Symposium on Computer Architecture (ISCA-2010), was selected as one of the eleven papers to be included in the IEEE Micro 'Top-Picks of 2010 conferences' issue. Three out of the 11 picks this year are from UT Austin. UT ECE professors Mattan Erez and Yale Patt were also named to the Top Picks issue.

Prof. Erez's paper is Virtualized and Flexible ECC for Main Memory, and Prof. Patt's paper is Data Marshaling for Multi-core Architectures.

The IEEE Micro magazine is the premier periodical in computerarchitecture and design with one of the highest impact factors in Computer society.
