[Honor/Award] Professor Sam H. Noh
Professor Sam H. Noh has been invited to serve as a program committee (PC) member at prestigious top-tier computer science conferences in 2016, namely, FAST 2016 , ASPLOS 2016 and OSDI 2016 . These conferences are all the best, top-tier conferences in the field of computer science, in particular, the systems area. Professor Noh is also serving as PC co-chair for HotStorage 2016 another top-tier venue focussed on storage systems. Unlike other fields that emphasize publication in journals, in the computer science field, top-tier conferences such as these are considered to be much more prestigious venues for publication.
The role of a PC is to evaluate the papers that are submitted to these venues and select the papers that are to be presented at these venues. PC members are appointed by invitation-only, and invitation is based on recognition of their contribution to the field. Professor Noh is the firstever to be invited from a Korean institution at all these prestigious conferences.
