|Georgia Scientific Computing Symposium|
|Published Date: 2016-02-18|
The Georgia Scientific Computing Symposium (GSCS) is a forum for professors, postdocs, graduate students and other researchers in Georgia to meet in an informal setting, to exchange ideas, and to highlight local scientific computing research. The symposium has been held every year since 2009 and is open to the entire research community. This year, the symposium will be held on Saturday, February 20, 2016, at Emory University. The format of the day-long symposium is a set of invited presentations, poster sessions and a poster blitz, and plenty of time to network with other attendees. Read more about it here.
|Vigfusson receives NSF CAREER Award|
|Published Date: 2015-12-03|
Ymir Vigfusson, Assistant Professor of Computer Science, has received the department's first ever NSF CAREER grant for his project "SentientCache: Rethinking the Cache Abstraction". The CAREER program offers the National Science Foundation's most prestigious awards in support of junior faculty who exemplify the role of teacher-scholars through outstanding research, excellent education and the integration of education and research. Vigfusson's work focuses on improving the performance and cost-effectiveness of large-scale distributed systems by automatically learning what data should be memorized; a description is at http://www.nsf.gov/awardsearch/showAward?AWD_ID=1553579&HistoricalAwards=false.

|Interdisciplinary project analyzes 'patchwriting' through math, computer science|
|Published Date: 2015-10-14|
This fall, Dr. James Lu begins research on 'patchwriting'. He was selected as one of three Emory faculty research teams selected to receive the 2015 Interdisciplinary Faculty Fellowship through Emory's Graduate Institute of Liberal Arts (ILA). He also seeks to learn more about the cognitive processes involved in patchwriting - why a writer may choose certain pieces of text, for example. Read more about it here.

|North American Computational Linguistics Olympiad hosted by Emory University|
|Published Date: 2015-02-06|
On Jan 29, 2015, the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science and the Program in Linguistics and hosted the North American Computational Linguistics Olympiad. NACLO is a contest in which high school students solve problems in computational linguistics. Winners of the competition can participate in an invitational round, which can ultimately lead to participation in an international competition. This year Emory joined other top universities (52 in all) in hosting the event, including Carnegie Mellon, Columbia, Cornell, Dartmouth, Georgetown, Johns Hopkins, MIT, Stanford, Michigan, Penn, and Yale. Emory was the only school in the southeast to serve as a host. Invitations were sent to over 70 high school academic bowl coaches in Georgia, ultimately yielding 23 participants, and putting Emory in the top third of schools in the nation in terms of number of participants. The event was held in the Winship Ballroom, and participants received a mug (with an Emory logo), a campus tour, and lunch at Cox Hall. Emory undergraduate students from Computer Science and Linguistics Science helped to run the event. The main organizers of the event was Jinho Choi from Computer Science and Phillip Wolff from Linguistics.
