Keynote Speakers


Onur Mutlu, ETH Zurich
Onur Mutlu is a Professor of Computer Science at ETH Zurich. He is also a faculty member at Carnegie Mellon University, where he previously held the Strecker Early Career Professorship. His current broader research interests are in computer architecture, systems, hardware security, and bioinformatics. A variety of techniques he, along with his group and collaborators, has invented over the years have influenced industry and have been employed in commercial microprocessors and memory/storage systems.
He obtained his PhD and MS in ECE from the University of Texas at Austin and BS degrees in Computer Engineering and Psychology from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. He started the Computer Architecture Group at Microsoft Research (2006-2009), and held various product and research positions at Intel Corporation, Advanced Micro Devices, VMware, and Google. He received the IEEE Computer Society Edward J. McCluskey Technical Achievement Award, ACM SIGARCH Maurice Wilkes Award, the inaugural IEEE Computer Society Young Computer Architect Award, the inaugural Intel Early Career Faculty Award, US National Science Foundation CAREER Award, Carnegie Mellon University Ladd Research Award, faculty partnership awards from various companies, and a healthy number of best paper or "Top Pick" paper recognitions at various computer systems, architecture, and hardware security venues. He is an ACM Fellow "for contributions to computer architecture research, especially in memory systems", IEEE Fellow for "contributions to computer architecture research and practice", and an elected member of the Academy of Europe (Academia Europaea).
His computer architecture and digital logic design course lectures and materials are freely available on YouTube, and his research group makes a wide variety of software and hardware artifacts freely available online.

Ricardo Bianchini, Microsoft Research
Dr. Ricardo Bianchini received his PhD degree in Computer Science from the University of Rochester. He then joined the faculty at the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro, and later at Rutgers University. He is currently a Distinguished Engineer at Microsoft, where he leads efforts to improve the efficiency of the company's online services and datacenters. He also manages the Systems Research Group at Microsoft Research in Redmond. His main research interests include cloud computing, datacenter efficiency, and leveraging machine learning to improve systems. He has published nine award papers and received the CAREER award from the National Science Foundation. He has given several conference keynote talks and served on numerous program committees, including as Program Co-Chair of ASPLOS, EuroSys, and ICDCS. He is an ACM Fellow and an IEEE Fellow.


Mahadev Satyanarayanan (Satya), Carnegie Mellon University
Satya's multi-decade research career has focused on the challenges of performance, scalability, availability and trust in information systems that reach from the cloud to the mobile edge of the Internet.  In the course of this work, he has pioneered many advances in distributed systems, mobile computing, pervasive computing, and the Internet of Things (IoT). As described in "How we created edge computing",  Satya's seminal 2009 publication "The Case for VM-based Cloudlets in Mobile Computing" and the ensuing research has  led to the emergence of Edge Computing (also known as "Fog Computing").  Satya is the Carnegie Group Professor of Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon University.  He received the PhD in Computer Science from Carnegie Mellon, after Bachelor's and Master's degrees from the Indian Institute of Technology, Madras. He is a Fellow of the ACM and the IEEE.
