The project, "Secure Database-Driven Dynamic Spectrum Sharing," addresses issues of security and privacy surroundingradio spectrum sharing. The five-year, $500,000 grant was awarded through NSF's Division of Computer and Network Systems.
Soil moisture is critical to plant growth and thus food security. Rodrigo Vargas Ramos, assistant professor of plant and soil sciences, using a combination of mathematical models and HPC techniques, will create a global map of soil moisture representing every day from 1980 to 2015. His collaborator and mentor is Michela Taufer, David and Beverly C. Mills Career Development Chair of Computer and Information Sciences.
Established in 1988, the annual SC conference has grown in size and impact. Approximately 5,000 people participate in the technical program, with about 11,000 people overall. "This is a well-deserved honor for Prof. Taufer and marks heras one of a few recognized leaders in the field of HPC," says CIS chair Kathy McCoy.
