Welcome to the ELC Lab at Yonsei University


Our research focus is on correctness and performance of software on modern computer architectures. Current research topics include streaming system orchestration in the Cloud, parallelization of matrix languages and Kronecker algebra operations on heterogeneous multicores and the Cloud, high-level language memory consistency models, graph-neural networks, and safe and efficient smart contract execution on blockchain virtual machines.


  Our paper titled ``Design-space evaluation for non-blocking synchronization in Ada: Lock-elision of Protected Objects, Concurrent Objects, and Low-level Atomics'' will appear in the Nov. 2020 issue of the Journal of Systems Architecture. Congratulations to Shinhyung, Seongho, Byunguk and Yeonsoo!
  Our paper on ``Lock Elision for Protected Objects Using Intel Transactional Synchronization Extensions'' received the best paper award at the Ada-Europe 2017 conference. Congratulations to Seongho and Shinhyung!
  On June 15, Yousun Ko presented our work on ``LaminarIR: Compile-time Queues for Structured Streams'' at the 36th ACM SIGPLAN Conference on Programming Language Design and Implementation (PLDI'15). Please find the video abstract here.
  We're happy to announce the support of the Intel Academic Community for our multicore Programming Practice course through the micro grant ``From Cells to Sandy Bridges''.
  The editors of the IEEE Transactions on Parallel and Distributed Systems have selected our paper on Accelerating the Execution of Matrix Languages on the Cell Broadband Engine Architecture as the spotlight-paper for the January 2011 issue.
