Alex Tzannes wins ACM Student Research Competition

Computer Science Ph.D. student Alexandros Tzannes has won the ACM Student Research Competition for his paper "Improving Run-Time Scheduling for General-Purpose Parallel Code.” The award was given at the 20th International Conference on Parallel Architectures and Compilation Techniques (PACT), Galveston Island, Texas, in October 2011.

Tzannes is co-advised by Associate Professor Rajeev Barua (ECE/ISR) and Professor Uzi Vishkin (ECE/UMIACS).

Maryland students in computing and interdisciplinary areas related to computing have placed highly in several of these ACM competitions in the past; this is the first time that a Maryland student has won first prize.
