Student selected for the 1st ASCENT PhD Accelerator Programme

On November 20th 2017 imec hosted the very first ASCENT PhD Accelerator workshop. Various topics were covered addressing reliability and failure mechanisms in state-of-the art microelectronic devices. This gave the opportunity to 6 international students, selected by the 3 institutes from a pool of ~40 applicants interested to step in the ASCENT project, to get insights in dielectric breakdown, self-heating, back-end reliability, etc.
One of the 6 selected students is Nicolò Zagni of the International Doctorate in ICT, University of Modena and Reggio Emilia.

TACC Training for Automotive Companies Creation

Lo scorso 29 novembre è stato pubblicato il bando per le candidature al progetto TACC Training for Automotive Companies Creation, percorso sperimentale e innovativo di orientamento e formazione all'imprenditorialità del settore automotive, in contesto interdisciplinare.
Il progetto è dedicato agli studenti delle lauree magistrali e ai dottorandi di UniMoRe e può rappresentare una interessante opportunità per acquisire competenze e soft skills in tema di innovazione e imprenditività, utili nel mondo del lavoro.
E' possibile scaricare presentazione sintetica , manifesto e call for applications.
Fino al 9 gennaio sarà possibile candidarsi per partecipare al progetto e l'inizio delle attività è previsto a marzo 2018. Ulteriori info al link automotiveacademy.unimore.it/tacc.

Seminar Announcement

Venerdì 15 Dicembre 2017, ore 14,00-16,00, nell'Aula P1.6, nell'ambito degli Insegnamenti di Big Data Analysis e Progettazione del Software del Corso di laurea magistrale in INGEGNERIA INFORMATICA, percorso Data Engineering and Analytics,  il dottore di ricerca Matteo Interlandi, terrà il seminario:
" Big data analytics beyond MapReduce"

Abstract: MapReduce was introduced by Google in 2004. Thanks to its functional programming abstraction and fault-tolerant distributed framework, MapReduce makes easy to write parallel programs. In 2004 MapReduce was mostly used for web indexing; however nowadays we are seeing different type of applications (relational, graphs or machine learning analytics for example) which does not fit well within the MapReduce paradigm. In this talk I will use some research projects I have been working on in the past years to (1) introduce Apache Spark and Apache REEF; (2) describe how relational, graphs and machine learning applications can be efficiently run at scale using such systems; and (3) illustrate system's pros, cons and design choices.

Each seminar allows to acquire a CFD
