07/13/2012 - 10:31am Following a highly competitive selection process, eighteen undergraduate students from around the world are performing research internships in ITI for the summer of 2012.
05/25/2012 - 3:50am ITI's Rakesh Kumar has received the Army Research Office's Young Investigator Award. The award, which honors young researchers who "show exceptional promise for doing creative research," will fund the development of algorithmic techniques to make applications robust to numerical errors.
05/22/2012 - 11:10am The IEEE Power and Energy Society has named ITI's Alejandro Dominguez-Garcia the 2012 IEEE PES Outstanding Young Engineer.
04/26/2012 - 5:40am Jay P. Kesan, a professor of law and ITI researcher, spoke with the Illinois News Bureau's business and law editor, Phil Ciciora, about what steps the government should take to improve the cybersecurity infrastructure in the U.S.
04/25/2012 - 4:55am ITI researchers Petros Voulgaris and Dušan Stipanović have received a 3-year grant from the Qatar National Research Fund to develop methods for safely coordinating networked vehicles.
04/23/2012 - 3:50am ITI's Klara Nahrstedt has been named the winner of a prestigious IEEE Computer Society Technical Achievement Award for 2012.
03/27/2012 - 6:01am Following student requests, applications for ITI's ICSSP undergraduate scholarships starting with the Fall 2012 semester will now be accepted through April 15, 2012. See the Illinois Cyber Security Scholars Program (ICSSP) page for details or to apply!
03/21/2012 - 11:00am ITI professor Sayan Mitra has just won a prestigious Young Investigator award from the Air Force Office of Scientific Research (AFOSR). Mitra's winning proposal was entitled "Verification Engines for Hybrid Networks."
03/20/2012 - 7:52am ITI researcher Cedric Langbort has just received an NSF CAREER Award that will support the design of control algorithms that will manage the flow of information made available to a potential hacker.
03/20/2012 - 7:45am A paper on reliable storage co-authored by ITI professor Brighten Godfrey received a Best Paper Award from the IEEE Communications Society Technical Committee on Data Storage. The work described in the paper created a new sub-area of coding theory called "regenerating codes," which can make reliable storage in data centers more efficient.
03/20/2012 - 7:38am Networked systems often are not as efficient or reliable as they could be, largely because they are informationally decentralized, comprise many nodes carrying disparate information, and are subject to constraints on energy, data storage and computational capabilities. ITI researchers and their collaborators aim to address the problem by developing a general theoretic framework and tools to help optimize these sensing systems.
12/08/2011 - 12:00pm Sarita Adve has been named a Fellow of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE). She was selected for her "contributions to shared memory semantics and parallel computing." Her research in computer architecture and systems, parallel computing, and power and reliability-aware systems focuses on a full-systems view and is notable for its multidisciplinary collaborations.
11/30/2011 - 4:46am Applications for ITI's ICSSP undergraduate scholarships starting with the Fall 2012 semester will be accepted through April 2, 2012. See the Illinois Cyber Security Scholars Program (ICSSP) program page for details or to apply!
11/28/2011 - 4:46pm Cloud computing is a game-changer for businesses, which now face the choice of adapting to the demand for ubiquitous access to data or losing customers to tech-savvy competitors, says an ITI expert in e-business strategy and information technology management.
10/30/2011 - 11:46pm The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Carnegie Mellon University, and North Carolina State University are each receiving an initial $1 million in grant funds from the U.S. National Security Agency (NSA) to stimulate the creation of a more scientific basis for the design and analysis of trusted systems.
10/09/2011 - 11:46pm The Information Trust Institute (ITI) at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign has announced the 2011 recipients of scholarships under its Illinois Cyber Security Scholars Program (ICSSP), which supports undergraduate students at Illinois who are U.S. citizens working towards careers in information trust.
06/26/2011 - 11:46pm ITI professor Jay P. Kesan warns that an active self-defense regime, which he terms "mitigative counterstriking," is a necessity in cyberspace.
06/22/2011 - 5:46am Alfonso Valdes, a longtime leader of national cyber security efforts in the electricity sector, is set to become the first managing director of the expanding "Smart Grid @ Illinois" research efforts housed in the Information Trust Institute (ITI) at the University of Illinois.
