Electrical Engineering and Computer Science

From Engineer to Entrepreneur

Published on January 14th, 2016 by Victor Frost

Lei Shi, an electrical engineering doctoral student, is developing a miniature radar system that will help small, unmanned aerial vehicles — UAVs — sense what’s around them and avoid collisions. Lei Shi can be seen on two billboards along Interstate 70 between Lawrence and Kansas City highlighting innovations derived from KU research. Lei Shi has launched a startup, UAVradars LLC, with the help of the KU catalyst student business incubator program, and received a NASA Small Business Innovation Research Grant through KU’s SBIR Assistance Program.

A paper by Patrick G. Clark and Professor Jerzy W. Grzymala-Busse was one of five papers selected as "Best Papers" at the International Conference on Advances in Databases, Knowledge, and Data Applications, in Rome in May 2015. The paper titled “On the Number of Rules and Conditions in Mining Incomplete Data with Lost Values and Attribute-Concept Values” deals with the handling of missing information in data mining. This award was based on the reviews of the original submission, the camera-ready version, and the paper presentation. Read more...


EECS Research Selected as IEEE Outstanding Paper

Published on January 14th, 2016 by Victor Frost

A paper submitted to the 2016 IEEE International Conference on Real-Time and Embedded Technology and Applications Symposium (RTAS) by EECS graduate students Prathap Kumar Valsan and Farzad Farshchi along with Professor Heechul Yun was designated as among the Outstanding Papers. The paper is titled “Taming Non-blocking Caches to Improve Isolation in Multicore Real-Time Systems.” It proposes a new simple hardware and system software (OS) collaborative approach that efficiently eliminates Miss Status Holding Registers (MSHRs) contention for safety-critical multicore based real-time systems at a low hardware cost.

Blunt, Branicky Named IEEE Fellows

Published on January 14th, 2016 by Victor Frost

EECS Professor Shannon Blunt and School of Engineering Dean Michael Branicky were recently named IEEE Fellows. Less than 0.1 percent of voting members are selected each year for Fellow status. Fellow is the highest grade of membership and is recognized by the technical community as a prestigious honor and an important career achievement. Blunt was recognized for “contributions to radar waveform diversity and design” that significantly impact current and future defense radar systems. Branicky was recognized for contributions to switched and hybrid control systems. Read more...
