Chen Named IEEE TCSC Young Achiever in Scalable Computing

Dr. Yong Chen, an assistant professor of computer science, has been named a 2014 Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) Technical Committee on Scalable Computing (TCSC) Young Achiever in Scalable Computing. The IEEE TCSC selection committee selected five recipients and the award will be presented at the 2014 International Conference on High Performance Computing, Networking, Storage and Analysis (SC14) conference in New Orleans, Louisiana in November.

The IEEE TCSC annual Young Achiever in Scalable Computing Award recognizes up to five individuals who have made outstanding, influential, and potentially long-lasting contributions in the field of scalable computing within five years of receiving their Ph.D.

The IEEE TCSC is an International Forum within the IEEE, aimed at fostering research and education in Scalable Computing. TCSC is interested in all areas of scalable computing, including but not limited to, high performance computing systems, cloud computing systems, grid, algorithms, applications, scheduling and workflows, and various others.
