The 13th ACM-IEEE International Conference on Formal Methods and Models for System Design was held this year on the UT Austin campus September 21-23. The conference was held in conjunction with co-located FMCAD, SAT, DIFTS and ACL2 conferences.
Hosted by WNCG Profs. and General Chairs Sanjay Shakkottai and Sujay Sanghavi, ACM SIGMETRICS featured speakers from across the globe. The week-long conference focused on performance evaluation and methods for computer networks and systems. From student presenters such as Sharayu Moharir, Siddhartha Banerjee, Subhashini Krishnasamy to Prof. François Baccelli taking home the SIGMETRICS achievement award, WNCG played an active role in this year's conference at UT Austin.
Dr. François Baccelli, the Simons Chair in Mathematics and Electrical and Computer Engineering at The University of Texas at Austin, has been selected to receive the 2014 ACM SIGMETRICS Achievement award.
Dr. Baccelli is a member of the French Academy of Sciences and a cutting edge researcher at the intersection of mathematics, telecommunications, and information theory. He joined UT Austin in August 2012 from the École Normale Supérieure de Paris, where he was director of computer science research.
