One of the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering researchers from Waterloo receives JELF grant from CFI to help cover infrastructure costs to support their cutting-edge research. Those researchers, their projects and funding included in today's announcement are:
The paper titled "A 0.4 V 75 kbit SRAM Macro in 28 nm CMOS Featuring a 3-Adjacent MBU Correcting ECC" by professors Adam Neale and Manoj Sachdev, has been awarded the Custom Integrated Circuits Conference (CICC) 2014 Best Poster Paper Award.
The award consists of a plaque and $300. The award will be presented at the keynote session of CICC 2015.
Professors Vijay Ganesh and Krzysztof Czarnecki, along with their PhD student Jimmy Liang won a best paper award at the top-tier SPLC 2015 conference held in Nashville, TN, USA from July 20-24, 2015. The paper titled "SAT-based Analysis of Large Real-world Feature Models is Easy" explains why very large and complex feature models, encoded as Boolean satisfiability instances, are easy for SAT solvers to solve.
