ARPERS stands for Architecture Research for PErformance, Reliability, and Security (ARPERS).ARPERS research group focuses on computer architecture exploration and modeling to support cross-cutting design issues such as performance, quality of service, interaction with software systems, security, and reliability. More information about our group can be found by visiting our Research and Publications web-pages. ARPERS was founded in 2002 and is led by Professor Yan Solihin.
Yan Solihin is a Program Director at the Division of Computer and Network Systems (CNS) at the National Science Foundation. His responsibilities include managing the Computer Systems Research (CSR) cluster, eXploiting Parallelism and Scalability (XPS), and Secure and Trustworthy Cyberspace (SaTC), among others. He is a Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at North Carolina State University.
He obtained his B.S. degree in computer science from Institut Teknologi Bandung in 1995, B.S. degree in Mathematics from Universitas Terbuka Indonesia in 1995, M.A.Sc degree in computer engineering from Nanyang Technological University in 1997, and M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in computer science from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 1999 and 2002. He is a recipient of 2010 and 2005 IBM Faculty Partnership Award, 2004 NSF Faculty Early Career Award, and 1997 AT&T Leadership Award. He is listed in the HPCA Hall of Fame. He is a senior member of the IEEE.
His research interests include computer architecture, memory hierarchy design, non-volatile memory architecture, programming models, and workload cloning. He has published more than 50 papers in computer architecture and performance modeling. He has released several software packages to the public: ACAPP - a cache performance model toolset, HeapServer - a secure heap management library, Scaltool - parallel program scalability pinpointer, and Fodex - a forensic document examination toolset. He has written two graduate-level textbook:
Note to Prospective Students
are constantly looking for graduate students to work on interesting and
pressing problems in this area. We are specifically looking for
students with strong analytical and problem solving skills, strong
programming skills, and background knowledge in computer architecture,
systems software, and compilers. If you are interested in
joining ARPERS, send an email to Dr Yan Solihin (solihin at ncsu.nospam.edu, remove nospam if you are not a robot)
