Professor Sam H. Noh to Serve as Program Co-Chair for FAST ’20
Sam H. Noh, UNIST Professor of Computer Science and Engineering, has been elected to serve as one of two co-chairs for the USENIX ’18th USENIX Conference on File and Storage Technologies’ (FAST ’20). This can be viewed as a positive sign that South Korean data storage technologies, including flash memory are world-class academically.
USENIX, founded in 1975, is the Advanced Computing Systems Association. It has brought together the community of engineers, system administrators, scientists, and technicians working on the cutting edge of the computing world. The USENIX conferences have become the essential meeting grounds for the presentation and discussion of the most advanced information on the developments of all aspects of computing systems. As such, the chairs and co-chairs who are ultimately responsible for the conference play a very important role in ensuring the success of the conference. Yet, there had been no such cases where a Korean national to serve as a program co-chair for the USENIX conferences, until now.
