Exciting New Research Presented at Grace Hopper

Valerie Barr, Professor of Computer Science, Union College

The Grace Hopper Conference includes a Ph.D. Forum that showcases the research of current Ph.D. students, with the additional goal of providing support and mentoring.  This year we had three sessions with a total of 10 presentations.  I was co-chair of the Ph.D. Forum, so perhaps I’m not an unbiased reporter, but I was incredibly impressed with the quality of the six presentations I saw.  The sessions were very well attended, and audience members asked great questions.  In addition, the audience filled out evaluation forms for each presenter, providing feedback on her presentation.  So here’s a list of up-and-coming CS researchers–keep an eye out for these women!

Samira M. Khan (University of Texas at San Antonio), Intelligent Cache Management for Reducing Memory System Waste

Maritza L. Johnson (Columbia University), Usable Security and Privacy Policy Management

Ting-Fang Yen (Carnegie Mellon University), Detecting Stealthy Malware Using Behavioral Features in Network Traffic

Lile Hattori (University of Lugano), Change-Centric Suport for Team Collaboration

Gabrielle A. Anderson (University of Southampton), Behavioural Properties and Dynamic Software Update for Concurrent Programs

Cindy Rubio-González (University of Wisconsin-Madison), Finding Error-Handling Bugs in Systems Code Using Static Analysis
