Carnegie Mellon Research Team Wins Best Paper Award at WPDRTS


April 26, 2004

A group of Carnegie Mellon University researchers won the Best Paper Award at the 12th International Workshop on Parallel and Distributed Real-Time Systems (WPDRTS) in Santa Fe for their paper, "Resource Management of Highly Configurable Tasks." The authors are Institute for Complex Engineered Systems (ICES) Research Scientist Jeff Hansen, Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) graduate student Sourav Ghosh, ECE and CS Professor Ragunathan Rajkumar, and Humanities and Social Sciences and Thomas Lord Professor of Statistics Dean John Lehoczky. Their proceedings present an extension of their work on Q-RAM, a QoS optimization algorithm that can improve optimization time by several orders of magnitude when managing highly configurable tasks. Ohio University's Center for Intelligent Distributed and Dependable Systems supported the award.
