    We investigate a new class of congestion games, called Totally Unimodular Congestion Games, where the players' strategies are binary vectors in a polyhedron that is defined using a totally unimodular constraint matrix and an integer right-hand side. We study both the symmetric and the asymmetric variants of the game. Network congestion games belong to this class. Fabrikant et al. proved that a pure Nash equilibrium of symmetric network congestion games can be found in strongly polynomial time, while the asymmetric network congestion games are PLS-complete. We give a strongly... Read More

    Abstract: With diminishing returns from technology-scaling,
    accelerators have been proposed as an attractive path forward for
    improving processor performance. One aspect of accelerators is to
    focus on their power reduction (compared to general-purpose cores) and
    another is their performance. In this talk we will describe an
    ordinary architecture organization that allows the design of
    accelerators that can be programmed in software using ordinary
    mechanisms like threads, transactions etc. I will then show how one
    use this architecture to... Read More

    This panel is designed to help undergraduate female computer science majors imagine a career in the Information Technology profession. Listen to a panel of experts -- real Madison women who are working in the technology field -- tell their personal stories. Why did they enter the IT field? What do they like about it? What do they dislike? How did they get to where they are now? Audience participants will have a chance to ask questions like 'How did your education prepare you for your career?' and 'What do you wish you had known when you were still in school?'... Read More
