IDEAL Attends Virtual IDETC 2020

From August 17 through 19, IDEAL attended the ASME International Design Engineering Technical Conferences (IDETC) 2020, which was held virtually. Two of our papers (led by Liwei Wang and Yu-Chin Chan) received the Papers of Distinction Award in the Design Automation Conference section (DAC)! In total, our group was represented by 5 papers out of the 118 accepted into DAC this year (see below).

Also, our former postdocs, Zhenghui Sha (currently Assistant Professor at University of Arkansas) and Faez Ahmed (currently Assistant Professor at MIT), co-organized the 2020 ASME-CIE Hackathon: Identifying, Extracting, Analyzing Value from Large Unstructured Data Sets in Mechanical Engineering. Some of our group members competed in teams and won prizes – congratulations to Yaxin Cui and Umar Farooq Ghumman!
