IEEE Micro, "Top Picks"

"Speculative Synchronization: Programmability and Performance for Parallel Codes," written by Jose Martinez, with his then Univiversity of Illinois advisor Jose Torrelas, was named in the November/December 2003 issue of IEEE Micro as a "Top Pick."

"Speculative Synchronization: Programmability and Performance for Parallel Codes," written by Jose Martinez, with his then Univiversity of Illinois advisor Jose Torrelas, was named in the November/December 2003 issue of IEEE Micro as a "Top Pick." Top Picks were papers from conferences over the past year that were judged to have had a major impact on the field.

Quoted from IEEE Micro: "Jose F. Martinez, in recognition of the inclusion of 'Speculative Synchronization: Programmability and Performance for Parallel Codes' in the 2003 Micro Top Picks special issue on the most industry relevant and significant papers of the year in computer architecture. Congratulations on your contributions to our field. P.B., Editor-in-Chief, IEEE Micro."

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.
