Faculty Profile - Jongman Kim
Computer Systems and Software
Office: Klaus 2362
Dr. Kim is an assistant professor in the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering, and the director of KORUS Research Center for Informersive Systems (CIS). Dr. Kim received his B.S. degree from Seoul National University in electrical engineering in 1990. He received the M.S. degree in electrical engineering and his Ph.D. degree in computer science and engineering from The Pennsylvania State University in 2001 and 2007, respectively. He joined the faculty at the Georgia Institute of Technology in August 2007, where his research group is currently working on projects related to multicore designs, heterogeneous System-on-Chip architectures, information-communication-media convergence systems, and massively parallel processing in 3D stacked technology. He achieved theoretical advances on the interplay between performance, energy, and reliability in heterogeneous multicore SoC design, and developed massively parallel processing array (MPPA) model and architectural support for multimedia immersive applications and scientific computation. He has been designing an effective hybrid multicore-manycore platform for future digital convergence systems, encompassing the information and multimedia domain with the introduction of CiOS (Convergence in One System) with personalization, pervasive interactivity, seamless communication, and immersive media service. He has closely worked with industry partners such as Samsung, Intel, Microsoft, KETI and Kaon Media.
Before joining The Pennsylvania State University, he had worked at LG Electronics in Seoul and Neopoint, Inc. in San Diego for several years, and participated in the development of handheld devices/PDA, AMPS(EIA/TIA-553), CDMA(IS-95, IS-95A/B and J-STD-008) cellular phone, and wireless internet platforms. Through these multicultural experiences, he has got insight into working on U.S.-Korea relations as well as industry-academia cooperation.
He is a member of IEEE and ACM/SIGARCH. He served as a registration chair of the 43rd IEEE/ACM International Symposium on Microarchitecture (Micro-43) and a program committee member of the 10th IEEE International Symposium on Parallel and Distributed Processing with Applications. He is a technical referee for numerous journals and conferences including IEEE Transactions on Parallel and Distributed Systems (TPDS), IEEE Transactions on VLSI Systems (TVLSI), IEEE Transactions on Computers (TC), International Symposium on High-Performance Computer Architecture, International Conference on Parallel and Distributed Processing Symposium, and European Conference on Parallel Computing.
