Sogang Students Awarded by Korean Institute of Information Scientists and Engineers at 2018 Korea Software Symposium
Kim Jang Woong and Roh Seong Hyeon
Kim Jang Woong (master’s student, led by Prof. Park Seong Yong) and Roh Seong Hyeon (master’s student, led by Prof. Kim Yeong Jae), students studying in the Computer Science and Engineering Department, received the awards for Best Thesis and Excellent Thesis, respectively, at the KCC Symposium 2018, hosted by the Korean Institute of Information Scientists and Engineers on December 19, 2018.
Kim Jang Woong received the Best Thesis Award in Computer Systems for his work titled “Parallel processing for writing in the single file of the non-volatile memory file system.” This thesis defines problems generated in writing single files in the non-volatile memory file system and provides parallel processing. This is expected to be utilized for enhancing the performance of database or key-value applications.
Roh Seong Hyeon received the Excellent Thesis Award for his work titled “Many cores’ performance and scalability analysis for log-based file systems.” This paper provides the solution of a small-range lock to address the bottle-neck in F2FS’s parallel single files, the optimized file system for SSD developed by Samsung Electronics. This led to the enhancement of I/O writing performance and holds high potential for being utilized to increase I/O performance in the application of databases and HPC’s check-point writing.
The Korean Institute of Information Scientists and Engineers (KCC 2018) holds its symposium on information science and technology to bring about the opportunity to present up-to-date research outcomes in all fields under information technology, such as artificial intelligence, computer systems, Internet of things, and databases.
