Professor BaekGyu Kim Appointed

  As of June 28th 2021, Dr. BaekGyu Kim will join us in the Department of Information and Communication Engineering at DGIST. Dr. BaekGyu Kim received his B.S and M.S degrees in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science from Kyungpook National University, Daegu, South Korea, in 2007 and 2009, respectively. He received a Ph.D. degree in Computer Science from University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, USA, in 2015. Before joining DGIST, he was a principal researcher at Toyota Motor North America R&D - InfoTech Labs. (formerly Toyota InfoTechnology Center, U.S.A), Mountain View, USA, where he worked for 5 years and 8 months. His primary research area is to guarantee software assurance in Cyber Physical Systems and Internet of Things. In particular, his research focuses on applying various formal methods and software engineering techniques to model, verify, and test systems and software to guarantee their correctness. His research outcomes have been demonstrated in creating software for safety critical systems including medical devices (infusion pumps) via collaboration between U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and University of Pennsylvania, and automotive systems (autonomous/connected cars) as industrial research at Toyota Motor North America R&D. He published more than 50 peer-reviewed papers in collaboration with his collaborators in international conferences and journals, and some of his works have been published at top-tier conferences such as EMSOFT, RTSS, DATE, CASES, ASE, INFOCOM. He also has more than 20 international patents granted, and more than 35 international patents filed. He received the best poster award from KOCSEA in 2011, the top inventor award from Toyota InfoTechnology Center, U.S.A. in 2017, and his collaborative work received SAE Vincent Bendix Automotive Electronics Engineering Award (Best paper award) in 2019.

DGIST hosts IEEE ISORC 2021, International Symposium on Real-Time Distributed Computing

Kyung-Joon Park, the chair of Information and Communication Engineering (ICE) department, serves as a general chair.     DGIST will host IEEE ISORC 2021 (International Symposium on Real-Time Distributed Computing) conference on June next year. Kyung-Joon Park will serve as a committee (general co-chair) and will begin working on the conference event management.    ISORC, which started in 1998, is an international conference mainly dealing with research related to real-time distributed computing. Top researchers in the real-time distributed computing field from around the world will gather to present their research results and discuss research cooperation on artificial intelligence-based IoT, autonomous vehicles, intelligent transportation systems, and cyber physical systems.   Kyung-Joon Park, recognized for his academic achivements to the cyber physical system and Internet of Things, takes on the duty of general chair. Hoon Sung Chwa, an assistant professor in ICE, takes charge of a local arrangement chair and will organize the conference events.   Kyung-Joon said, "Hosting ISORC 2021 by DGIST will play a key role in promoting domestic artificial intelligence and real-time computing technology to the international academic society. In addition, it is expected to be a good opportunity for the related domestic IT industry to leap forward through understanding the global trends of core technologies and services in the era of the 4th industrial revolution and establishing an international network."   IEEE ISORC 2021 conference is scheduled on June 1–3, 2021. The paper submission deadline is January 31, 2021.
