The Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), the world’s largest educational and scientific computing society, released a list of its new fellows on December 8, 2015, the 2015 ACM Fellows.
Professor Naehyuck Chang of the School of Electrical Engineering at KAIST was among the 42 new members who became ACM Fellows in recognition of their contributions to the development and application of computing in areas from data management and spoken-language processing to robotics and cryptography.
Professor Chang is known for his leading research in power and energy optimization from embedded systems applications to large-scale energy systems such as device- and system-level power and energy measurement and estimation, liquid crystal display power reduction, dynamic voltage scaling, hybrid electrical energy storage systems, and photovoltaic cell arrays. He is the fourth Korean to be nominated an ACM Fellow.
Professor Chang is also a Fellow of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) and the Editor-in-Chief of the journal, ACM Transactions on Design Automation of Electronic Systems (TODAES). He served as the President of the ACM Special Interest Group on Design Automation in 2012.

Professor Dongsu Han from the School of Electrical Engineering has been appointed as the program chair for the 16th Association for Computing Machinery’s International Conference on emerging Networking EXperiments and Technologies (ACM CoNEXT 2020). Professor Han is the first program chair to be appointed from an Asian institution. ACM CoNEXT is hosted by ACM SIGCOMM, ACM's Special Interest Group on Data Communications, which specializes in the field of communication and computer networ2020-06-02
(from left: MS candidate Anish Byanjankar, Research Assistant Professor Hyosu Kim and Professor Insik Shin) Time passes so quickly, especially in the morning. Your hands are so busy brushing your teeth and checking the weather on your smartphone. You might wish that your mirror could turn into a touch screen and free up your hands. That wish can be achieved very soon. A KAIST team has developed a smartphone-based touch sound localization technology to facilitate ubiquitous interact2018-12-26
People often use their hands when describing an object, while pens are great tools for describing objects in detail. Taking this idea, a KAIST team introduced a new 3D sketching workflow, combining the strengths of hand and pen input. This technique will ease the way for ideation in three dimensions, leading to efficient product design in terms of time and cost. For a designer's drawing to become a product in reality, one has to transform a designer's 2D drawing into a 3D shape; however2018-07-25
Pressing a button appears effortless. People easily dismisses how challenging it is. Researchers at KAIST and Aalto University in Finland, created detailed simulations of button-pressing with the goal of producing human-like presses. The researchers argue that the key capability of the brain is a probabilistic model. The brain learns a model that allows it to predict a suitable motor command for a button. If a press fails, it can pick a very good alternat2018-03-22
Sangeun Oh, a Ph.D. candidate in the School of Computing was selected as a Google PhD Fellow in 2017. He is one of 47 awardees of the Google PhD Fellowship in the world. The Google PhD Fellowship awards students showing outstanding performance in the field of computer science and related research. Since being established in 2009, the program has provided various benefits, including scholarships worth $10,000 USD and one-to-one research discussion with mentors from Google. His resear2017-09-27
