ECE Professor Lin Tan and her collaborators have won the ACM SIGSOFT Distinguished Paper Award at the 2016 International Symposium on the Foundations of Software Engineering (FSE) for their paper entitled "Detecting Sensitive Data Disclosure via Bi-directional Text Correlation Analysis"
Waterloo Engineering graduates Brian Howe (Mech ’84), Bill Gastmeier (Physics ’74, Elect ’76) and Brian Chapnik (SD ’88, ’90) founded HGC, a Toronto-based acoustical consulting firm, in 1994, and were later joined by fellow alumnus Rob Stevens (Mech ’92, ’03).
Their diverse skills and personalities helped them build a worldwide reputation in the measurement, assessment and mitigation of noise and vibration problems, as well as the acoustical optimization of architectural spaces and products.
Eager for a challenge when she looked into attending Waterloo Engineering as a 17-year-old, Paldus (Elect, Math ’93) did a double undergraduate degree in electrical engineering and applied math at the same time, before moving on to graduate studies at Stanford University.
Electrical and Computer Engineering Professor, Amir Khandani, has been named an IEEE Fellow. He is being recognized for his contributions to resource allocation and interference management in network information theory.
ECE's PhD student, Jianbing Ni, Postdoctoral Fellow, Kuan Zhang and their supervisor, Professor Sherman Shen, win the SecureComm 2016 Best Paper Award for their work "Cloud-Based Privacy-Preserving Parking Navigation through Vehicular Communications", joint with Professor Xiaodong Lin (UOIT, Canada) and Professor Yong Yu (UESTC, China). The paper was presented on October 10 at SecureComm 2016 – the 12th EAI International Conference on Security and Privacy in Communication Networks.
