PRECISE Seminar: Parallel Assertions for Debugging Parallel Programs
A parallel program must execute correctly even in the presence of unpredictable thread interleavings. This interleaving makes it hard to write correct parallel programs, and also makes it hard to find bugs in incorrect parallel programs. A range of tools have been developed… Read more

PRECISE Seminar: Policies for Querying Sensors with Cost/Delay Considerations
I will present some results concerning how we can schedule queries in a sensor network when there is a cost (say, energy) associated with each query. In this setting, how do we make good choices about when to query subject to delay or data staleness limitations? This work… Read more
