I am leading Xtra Computing Group, focusing on emerging topics in data management and HPC.
[Publication] Two full papers "Medusa: Simplified Graph Processing on GPUs" [pdf] and "CMPI: Network Performance Aware MPI in the Cloud" [pdf] are accepted by IEEE TPDS.
[News] I am invited as Distinguished Young Lecturer in WAIM 2013.[news]
[Job] 1-2 research staff positions (postdoc for 1-2 years contract). I expect that the staff has independent research capability. Areas include, but not limited to, high performance computing (on GPGPU and many-core computing) and cloud computing (on data management, storage systems and energy efficiency). This is supported by MoE Tier 2 grant: "GPGPU for Real-Time Graph Data Analytics".
[Tutorial] I gave a tutorial in ACM PPoPP 2012, Shenzhen (with 30+ attendence). "GPGPU for Real-Time Data Analytics": [details]
[Publication] A full paper "FD-Buffer: A Cost-Based Adaptive Buffer Replacement Algorithm for Flash Memory Devices" is accepted by IEEE Transactions on Computers.
[Tutorial] Dec 2012: A tutorial is invited to be given at ICPADS 2012 "GPGPU for Real-Time Data Analytics": [details]
[Publication] Oct 2012: A full paper "Green Databases Through Integration of Renewable Energy" will be presented in CIDR'13 (6th Biennial Conference on Innovative Data Systems Research). Asilomar![pdf]
[Publication] Sept 2012: A full paper "Improving Large Graph Processing on Partitioned Graphs in the Cloud" will be presented in ACM SOCC'12 (ACM Symposium on Cloud Computing 2012, 21 out of 163). [pdf]
[Publication] Sept 2012: A full paper "Green-Aware Workload Scheduling in Geographically Distributed Data Centers" will be presented in IEEE CloudCom 2012 (IEEE 4th International Conference on Cloud Computing Technology and Science 2012). [pdf]
[Publication] August 2012: A full paper "RAMZzz: Rank-Aware DRAM Power Management with Dynamic Migrations and Demotions" will be presented in SC'12 (SuperComputing 2012). [pdf]
March 2012: The group has the following vacant positions:
[Job] 1-2 research staff positions (postdoc for 1-2 years contract). I expect that the staff has independent research capability. Areas include, but not limited to, high performance computing (on GPGPU and many-core computing) and cloud computing (on data management, storage systems and energy efficiency).
[Job] 1-2 Ph.D. student admissions: with strong motivations in research and capabilities in system building and analysis. Geeks are welcome.
[Publication] 2012: we have published some research works:
Two ACM PPoPP 2012 posters: "An Overview of CMPI: Network Performance Aware MPI in the Cloud" and "An Overview of Medusa: Simpli?ed Graph Processing on GPUs". ACM PPoPP 2013 will be in Shenzhen, China.
Two CCGrid12 full papers (the major work is done by my collabrator): "Maestro: Replica-Aware Map Scheduling for MapReduce" and "A Map-Reduce Based Framework for Heterogeneous Processing Element Cluster Environments".
June, 2011: the summer starts; need to grasp energy to work hard.
[Publication] "Flag Commit: Supporting Efficient Transaction Recovery on Flash-based DBMSs", accepted by IEEE TKDE.
[Publication] "Towards Pay-As-You-Consume Cloud Computing", to appear in IEEE SCC 2011: The 8th International Conference on Services Computing.
[Publication] "Adaptive I/O Scheduling for MapReduce in Virtualized Environment", to appear in ICPP 2011: The 40th Annual International Conference on Parallel Processing.
