Department of Computer Science - University of Cyprus

Besides Colloquiums, the Department of Computer Science at the University of Cyprus also holds Other Presentations (Research Seminars, PhD Defenses, Short Term Courses, Demonstrations, etc.). These presentations are given by scientists who aim to present preliminary results of their research work and/or other technical material. Other Presentations serve as a forum for educating Computer Science students and related announcements are disseminated to the Department of Computer Science (i.e., the csall list):

Our research goal is to utilize Coding Theory to enhance different aspects (performance, fault tolerance, lifetime) of computer systems with a focus on emerging memory technologies. By fine tuning coding techniques for a specific memory technology we can address the limitations of that technology. One such example is using coset codes to increase the lifetime of Flash memory by increasing the number of times that a flash page can be (re-)written before getting erased. Another example is using Varshamov-Tenengolts codes to tolerate shift errors in Racetrack memory by allowing us to detect and correct deletion and insertion errors.

Short Bio:
George Mappouras is 5th year Ph.D. student at Duke Univeristy. He earned his master degree in 2017 at Duke University and his bachelor degree in 2014 at National Technical University of Athens. His research interests include a variety of topics in Computer Architecture. His current research focuses on integrating Coding Theory with Computer Architecture in order to achieve more efficient, fault tolerant and robust computer system designs.

The seminar is jointly organized by the Department of Computer Science and the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering.
