Duke Computer Systems & Engineering (CSE) is an interdisciplinary collaboration between the Department of Computer Science in the Trinity College of Arts & Sciences and the Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering in the Pratt School of Engineering. The Duke CSE group is comprised of world-class faculty and students that are at the forefront of research and education addressing the challenges associated with designing and implementing computer systems to meet society’s increasing dependence on computing.


Upcoming Events

  • Three papers from Ben Lee’s and Alvin Lebeck’s research groups were selected for honorable mention as IEEE micro top picks in computer architecture for 2016. Learn more »
  • Yan Chen's paper, "Differentially Private Regression Diagnostics," has been selected as one of the best papers at the International Conference on Data Mining (ICDM) 2016.
  • Alvin Lebeck has been elevated to IEEE Fellow in recognition of his contributions to memory hierarchies and energy-efficient and parallel computing. Less than 0.1% of voting IEEE members are selected annually for elevation to fellow status. This is IEEE's highest honor.
  • Jun Yang and Brett Walenz have created the iCheck website for checking the accuracy of congressional voting claims. Learn more
  • Xi He, Nisarg Raval, and Ashwin Machanavajjhala won the VLDB 2016 Best Demonstration Award for "VisDPT: Visual Exploration of Differentially Private Trajectories."
  • Sudeepa Roy has received a CAREER Award from the National Science Foundation for a project entitled "CAREER: FIREFLY - Rich Explanations for Database Queries." Total funding will be $550,000 over 5 years. This award will support Roy's research into providing automatic explanations to help a range of people harness Big Data more efficiently.
  • A fast and power-efficient processor developed by Dan Sorin and George Konidaris opens up new opportunities for robots and autonomous vehicles. Learn more
  • Landon Cox, Ashwin Machanavajjhala, Animesh Srivastava, and other Duke computer scientists have developed software that helps prevent inadvertent disclosure of trade secrets and other restricted information within a camera's field of view by letting users specify what others can see.

  • Songchun Fan, Seyed Zahedi, and Ben Lee's paper, "The Computational Sprinting Game," has been selected as the best paper in ASPLOS 2016.
  • An HPCA 2014 paper authored by Meng Zhang, Jesse D. Bingham, John Erickson, and Daniel J. Sorin, "PVCoherence: Designing Flat Coherence Protocols for Scalable Verification," was selected as a Top Pick from the Computer Architecture Conferences by IEEE Micro. The paper shows how to design scalable cache coherence protocols in such a way that they can be formally verified to be correct for systems with an arbitrary number of caches.
  • An ASPLOS 2014 paper authored by Prof. Ben Lee and Ph.D. student Seyed Majid Zahedi, "REF: Resource Elasticity Fairness with Sharing Incentives for Multiprocessors," was selected as a Top Pick from the Computer Architecture Conferences by IEEE Micro. The paper shows that Cobb-Douglas utility functions are well suited to modeling user preferences for hardware resources and presents an allocation mechanism to guarantee game-theoretic desiderata, such as sharing incentives and envy-freeness.
  • Meng Zhang, Jesse Bingham, John Erickson, and Daniel Sorin received a best paper award at the 20th International Symposium on High Performance Computer Architecture (HPCA 2014) for their paper "PVCoherence: Designing Flat Coherence Protocols for Scalable Verification."
  • Sandeep Agrawal is a recipient of a 2014-2015 NVIDIA Graduate Fellowship. This award is a scholarship in the amount of $25,000 to be used to further Sandeep's research.
