Prof. Sue Moon from KAIST visited our group

Prof. Sue Moon from KAIST visited our group on July 19, 2011. Prof. Moon received a Ph.D. degree in computer science from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst in 2000. From 1999 to 2003, she worked in the IPMON project at Sprint ATL in Burlingame, California. In August of 2003, she joined KAIST and now teaches in Daejeon, Korea. She has served as TPC co-chair for APSys 2011, ACM SIGCOMM 2007 MobiArch Workshop, and ACM Multimedia 2004, general chair for PAM, and TPC for many conferences, including SIGCOMM 2010, NSDI 2008 and 2010, WWW 2007-2009 and 2011-2012, INFOCOM 2004-2006, and IMC 2009. She is currently serving on the editorial board of Computer Communications Review. She won the best paper award in ACM SIGCOMM Internet Measurement Conference 2007, has been awarded the Amore Pacific Woman Scientist Award in 2009, and was named to the KAIST chair professorship in 2011. Her research interests are: network performance measurement and analysis, online social networks, and networked systems.

Prof. Moon gave a talk on PacketShader, which has demonstrated the feasibility of 40Gbps on a single PC with Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) acceleration. It exploits the massively-parallel processing power of GPU to address the CPU bottleneck in current software routers. Combined with the high-performance packet I/O engine, PacketShader outperforms existing software routers by more than a factor of four, forwarding 64B IPv4 packets at 39 Gbps on a single commodity PC.
