A team of researchers including participants from the SPP 2377 project “Memento” and the SPP-associated project “NEON” was successful at the Brazilian Symposium on Computing Systems Engineering in Fortaleza: Benedikt Jung, Christian Eichler, Jonas Röckl, Ralph Schlenk, Timo Hönig, and Tilo Müller received a Best Paper Award for their paper “Trusted Monitor: TEE-Based System Monitoring”.
With a two-day kick-off meeting on September 21./22. 2022, SPP 2377 has taken up work. The event was hosted by Wolfgang Lehner and his team at TU Dresden, who provided a warm welcome to 52 participants at the Max Planck Institute for Chemical Physics of Solids and the Faculty of Computer Science of TU Dresden. The first day started with an overview of the priority program by Olaf Spinczyk and a keynote by Dieter Kasper, who gave an introduction to persistent memory and the challenges it still imposes in the data-center, current developments around CXL, and addressed the problem of…
Yesterday, the MEMENTO team from the Ruhr University Bochum and HPI Potsdam held their kick-off meeting in at Timo Hönig’s group in Bochum. The team obviously enjoyed the event. Sven Köhler from Andreas Polze’s group at HPI contributed a tasty SPP 2377 bread. Cool! Here are some impressions from the event:
On Monday the DFG has sent out the notifications on the proposed projects. In total 14 research projects and one coordination project will be funded. 23 primary investigators from 14 different research institutions will be involved. The list of projects will be published here soon.
26 high-quality research project proposals and one coordination project proposal have been submitted by November, 9th. This is a very good number, which at the same time means that there will be a hard competition. Meanwhile the team of reviewers has been setup up by DFG and their work has begun.
