G. Edward Suh Wins ASPLOS Most Influential Paper Award
G. Edward Suh, Associate Professor in the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering has been selected as the 2014 winner for the ASPLOS Most Influential Paper Award.
G. Edward Suh, Associate Professor in the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering has been selected as the 2014 winner for the ASPLOS Most Influential Paper Award. The award is given annually to an ASPLOS paper published at least 10 years ago, and will be presented at the 19th International Conference on Architectural Support for Programming Languages and Operating Systems in Salt Lake City, Utah in March 2014.
Suh won the award for his paper, “Secure program execution via dynamic information flow tracking,” which was co-authored by Jae W. Lee, David Zhang, and Srinivas Devadas. According to the abstract, the paper presents an “architectural mechanism called dynamic information flow tracking that can significantly improve the security of computing systems with negligible performance overhead. Dynamic information flow tracking protects programs against malicious software attacks by identifying spurious information flows from untrusted I/O and restricting the usage of the spurious information.”
The paper was published in ASPLOS XI Proceedings of the 11th International Conference on Architectural Support for Programming Languages and Operating Systems, in October 2004.

Rick Johnson, an engineering professor on the Hill—and, at the risk of a mixed metaphor, something of a Renaissance man. At Cornell since 1981, Johnson has spent decades teaching and doing research in electrical engineering, particularly in the fields of control systems and signal processing. But over the past twelve years, his interests have entailed as much art as science. A pioneer in the field of computational art history, Johnson leverages both his engineering acumen and his abiding passion for art to study the physical materials with which works are made.
