Jason Mars Selected as Program Chair for CGO 2015
Prof. Jason Mars has been selected to serve as Program Chair for the 2015 International Symposium on Code Generation and Optimization (CGO). It is rare that a junior faculty member is selected to serve as Program Chair because it requires leading top experts from around the world in selecting papers to appear in the conference program.
CGO is the premier conference for compilers and code generation. This conference brings together researchers and practitioners working at the interface of hardware and software on a wide range of optimization and code generation techniques and related issues. The conference spans the spectrum from purely static to fully dynamic approaches, including techniques ranging from pure software-based methods to architectural features and support.
Prof. Mars’ current research interests include cross-layer systems in software and hardware, datacenter and warehouse-scale computer architecture, and hardware/software co-design.
Prof. Mars received his Ph.D in Computer Science at The University of Virginia in 2012 and joined the faculty at Michigan in 2013. Before joining U-M, he was an assistant professor in the CSE department at The University of California, San Diego. Also, he has served as visiting scientist at Google, which involved investigating opportunities to improve efficiency of Google’s backend infrastructure.
He has also received numerous honors and awards including the Preuss Faculty Scholar Appointment, the UVA Research Award, and Best Paper Awards from CGO ’12 and Computer Architecture Letters.
