Technion - Israel Institute of Technology

At Israel's technical university in Haifa, nine students are currently doing research at the so-called “Hasso Plattner Center on Chip Multiprocessor Software and Architecture”. Its goal is to allow a multidisciplinary group of researchers in the Computer Science and Electrical Engineering departments to rise up to the new challenges presented by the shift to Chip Multi Processors (“HPC-Technion”). The students are mentored jointly by professors from the Computer Science and Electrical Engineering departments.

Roy Friedman serves as PC co-chair for ACM DEBS 2015 and was PC co-chair for ACM SYSTOR (2014) and Autonomics (2009) as well as vice chair for IEEE ICDCS Fault-Tolerance and Dependability track (2013) and Middleware and Operating Systems tracks (2006) and vice chair of EuroPar (2008 and 2003). Formerly, Roy Friedman was an academic specialist at INRIA (France) and a researcher at Cornell University (USA). He is a founder of PolyServe Inc. (acquired by HP) and holds a Ph.D. and a B.Sc. from the Technion.

Prof. Ran Ginosar

 Prof. Ran Ginosar is faculty member of both the Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Departments at the Technion since 1983. He received his BSc from the Technion in 1978 and his PhD from Princeton Engineering in 1982 in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. He has conducted computer architecture and VLSI research at Bell Laboratories in 1982-1983 and at Intel Research Labs, Oregon in 1997-1999. He was a Visiting Professor at the Computer Science Department of the University of Utah in 1989-1990. At the Technion he founded the VLSI Systems Research Center in 1984, and serves as its Head. He co-founded several semiconductor companies, as well as Plurality, a many-core company. His research interests include CMP, many-cores and VLSI architectures. He has co-authored more than 150 refereed papers and 20 patents.

Prof. Idit Keidar

Prof. Idit Keidar is a Professor and the Associate Dean for Graduate Studies at the Department of Electrical Engineering at the Technion. She also heads the Networked Software Systems Laboratory (NSSL). She received her BSc (summa cum laude), MSc (summa cum laude) and PhD at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem in 1992, 1994, and 1998 resp. Prof. Keidar is a world renown expert in distributed computing and concurrency, having developed numerous distributed and networked systems, including for storage, multicast, group communication, group membership, distributed transactions and atomic commit, peer-to-peer messaging, mobile networks, Internet-based services, cloud services, trusted access to data in cloud storage, and concurrent programming. She has published over 100 papers in competitive peer-reviewed journals and conferences, which were cited more than 4200 times, and has supervised over 30 graduate students and 3 postdocs. She has consulted for a number of industrial companies building distributed systems. Prof. Keidar has served on over 30 program committees, including as PC Chair of DISC 2009 and SYSTOR 2015, as a columnist for SIGACT News, and a guest editor for Distributed Computing, and is currently serving on the editorial board of IEEE CAL. Her awards include the Yanai Award for Excellence in Academic Education, the Muriel and David Jackow Award for Excellence in Teaching, the David Dudi Ben-Aharon Research Award, the Allon Fellowship, the Rothschild Yad-Hanadiv fellowship for postdoctoral studies, and a Wolf Foundation Prize for Ph.D. students.

Prof. Isaac Keslassy

Prof. Isaac Keslassy is an Associate Professor in the Electrical Engineering department of the Technion, Israel. He received his M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Electrical Engineering from Stanford University, in 2000 and 2004. His recent research interests include the design and analysis of data-center networks, multi-core architectures and high-performance routers. He was the recipient of the Allon, Mani, Yanai, and Taub awards, as well as an ERC Starting Grant. He was also the recipient of best-paper awards at IEEE IWQoS’10 and IEEE Computer Architecture Letters for 2012, and a best-paper runner-up award at IEEE Infocom’13. He was associate editor for the IEEE/ACM Transactions on Networking, and TPC chair for ANCS 2014. He is IEEE senior member.

Prof. Assaf Schuster

Prof. Assaf Schuster of the Computer Science Department Technion is a world leading expert of distributed and scalable data Mining, Big Data technologies analytics & prediction, Cyber security and system vulnerabilities, privacy preserving, cloud resource management and more. Prof. Schuster published more than 200 papers in highly selective conferences and journals, some of which won prestigious awards. He consulted leading hi-tech companies, such as IBM, HP, Microsoft, and Verint. He participated in the bumpy journey of quite a few startups, some of which were successful. His algorithms on data-race detection were implemented in Intel’s Thread Checker. His papers triggered a rewrite of the Java Memory Model. His patents were sold by the Technion. He has built scalable production systems to handle petabytes of storage with off-the-shelf hardware. His research group is well known in its contributions to the field of big data and scalable, real-time knowledge discovery in distributed data streams. The annual funding of his group from national, international, and industrial sources, reaches hundreds of thousands of Euro. The group consists of several post-doctoral researchers and quite a few graduate students, as well as promising undergraduate students. Prof. Schuster established CSL – the Computer Systems Laboratory, and TCE – the Technion Center for Computer Engineering, which he headed until recently.
