Congratulations to LI Jinheng, LI Qiao, WAN Hu for winning the ACM Euro Award at the 39th ACM/SIGAPP Symposium on Applied Computing (SAC 2024).


Prof. Chun Jason Xue is a professor at the Department of Computer Science, MBZUAI, Abu Dhabi. He received Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of Texas at Dallas in 2007 and joined the City University of Hong Kong in the same year. He is currently an associate editor of ACM Transactions on Embedded Computing Systems, ACM Transactions on Storage, and ACM Transactions on CPS.

He has served/serves as General Chair, Program Chair, and Program Committee Member on a number of technical conferences and workshops. He is currently the Steering Committee Chair of ACM SIGPLAN/SIGBED International Conference on Languages, Compilers, and Tools for Embedded Systems (LCTES) since 2020.

Research interests

His research focus is on storage and systems, and high-performance system designs for AI. He is one of the pioneer researchers to consider Non-Volatile Memories (NVMs) at the software and system level. NVM, such as Phase Changing Memory (PCM), STT-RAM, and FeRAM, shows huge potential because of its characteristics of high density, shock-resistance, and near-zero leakage power. NVM has shortcomings such as long write latency, high write energy, and limited endurance. This property of asymmetric read/write operations poses unique challenges. His works (DAC’10, DAC’11) address read/write asymmetry from the system and software level when NVM is applied in the memory hierarchy. NVM writes are further calibrated with different intensities (LCTES’13, DATE’13), which leads to optimized power consumption, performance, and lifetime. These works have profound impacts on widely applied commercial products such as Intel 3D X-point memory and TI MSP series today.
