Our recent study “Optimizing Packed String Matching on AVX2 Platform” with my M.Sc. student Mehmet Akif Aydoğmuş has been accepted to 13th International Meeting High Performance Computing for Computational Science (VECPAR’18).
I have given a talk addressing the importance of “Algorithms in the Digital Age”at İdea Teknoloji Çözümleri . Thanks for the kind invitation and the sincere hospitality I received during my visit.
We have discussed why the design and analysis of algorithms make a significant difference in applications, particularly in massive data processing and IoT environments. We spent time on introducing the issues such as approximation and randomized algorithms, streaming data processing, external memory algorithms as well as data compression and compressed data processing. Theory and practice in scope of algorithm engineering was a main point of concern.
Our joint work “A Two-level Scheme for Quality Score Compression” with my (graduated) MSc student Ali Fotouhi (currently with University of Sherbrooke, Canada), Jan Voges and Jörn Osterman from University of Leipzig, Germany; has been accepted to Journal of Computational Biology. This work had been supported by the TUBITAK grant 117E293 grant. You can reach the ahead-of-print version here.
My work with the title “An Ambiguous Coding Scheme for Selective Encryption of High-Entropy Volumes” is accepted to 17th International Symposium on Experimental Algorithms (SEA’18).
The proceedings volume of SEA 2018 is now officially published as volume 103 of LIPIcs and available at http://www.dagstuhl.de/dagpub/978-3-95977-070-5
The project entitled “Non-prefix free codes with applications” received a grant of amount 130K TL from the TUBITAK-1001 program for 18 months. Two graduate and two undergraduate students will be supported. Candidates with “excellent” knowledge of C/C++ and a strong interest in algorithms & data structures are encouraged to contact me by sharing their CVs.
Our paper entitled “Quality Assessment of High-Throughput DNA Sequencing Data via Range Analysis” with my student Ali Fotouhi and Mina Majidi is accepted to the International Work-Conference on Bioinformatics and Biomedical Engineering (IWBBIO) 2018 conference.
I have served as the opponent at the Ph.D. defense of Sukhpal Ghuman at Department of Computer Science, Aalto University, Helsinki, Finland on 15th of January, 2018.
