Mao and Karakos selected for IBM symposium

ISR graduate student Yinian Mao and alum Damianos Karakos were among a select group invited to the 2005 IBM Symposium on User Interface and Signal Processing Technologies on Sept. 19. The goal of the symposium is to give high-quality Ph.D. students and postdocs the opportunity to learn about IBM research and present their own scholarly research.

Mao presented his recent work on security-aware sensor deployment, and Karakos spoke about his research on the maximum likelihood set approach to language modeling. Mao's advisor is ISR affiliated Assistant Professor Min Wu (ECE/ UMIACS). Karakos, who earned his Ph.D. in 2002, was advised by former ISR affiliated Assistant Professor Adrian Papamarcou (ECE/ ISR).
