  • Congratulations to Prof. Chrysanthis and Prof. Labrinidis on receiving new NSF Award!

    Prof. Chrysanthis and Prof. Labrinidis, together with colleagues from the School of Engineering (Prof. Peyman Givi, PI) and the Math Department (Prof. William Layton) received new research funding from the National Science Foundation for their project entitled Appraisal of Subgrid Scale Closures in Reacting Turbulence via DNS Big Data. The project will employ a range of strategies and computational tools for utilizing DNS data to appraise the performance of large eddy simulation (LES) predictions in turbulent combustion. The study will pave the way for LES to become the primary means of predictions for future design and manufacturing of combustion systems, while building a data sharing infrastructure, and providing educational and outreach programs to students at all levels. http://www.nsf.gov/awardsearch/showAward?AWD_ID=1609120

  • Pitt Computer Science Lecturer Bill Garrison, Presented at the 2016 IEEE Symposium on Security and Privacy

    Since 1980, the IEEE Symposium on Security and Privacy has been the premier forum for presenting developments in computer security and electronic privacy, and for bringing together researchers and practitioners in the field. The 2016 Symposium marked the 37th annual meeting of this flagship conference. The Symposium was held on May 23-25, and the Security and Privacy Workshops were held on May 26, 2016. Both events were in San Jose, California at The Fairmont.
