Activities November 14, 2016


UNIST students, Jihye Seo and Wook-Hee Kim, professor Woongki Baek, Beomseok Nam (corresponding author) and Sam H Noh’s paper titled “Failure-Atomic Slotted Paging for Persistent Memory” is accepted at ASPLOS 2017.

This is the 2nd ASPLOS paper of UNIST students, and the 5th ASPLOS paper from Korean universities in history!

ASPLOS is the top conference for multi-disciplinary computer systems research that spans across computer architecture, compilers, and operating systems. ASPLOS 2017 will be held in Xi’an, China, the starting point of the Silk Road and home to the Terracotta Army of Emperor Qin Shi Huang.

This paper presents a novel database page format for non-volatile memory. For the persistent memory that is non-volatile and as fast as DRAM, the proposed “failure-atomic slotted paging” minimizes the number of memory write operations and keeps only a single copy of database pages without redundancy at any time.
