The Data Storage Systems Center will host its Spring 2011 Technical Review on Thursday and Friday, March 24–25, in the Singleton Room of Roberts Engineering Hall on the Carnegie Mellon campus. Held twice each year, the reviews provide an opportunity for DSSC students and faculty to showcase their latest research findings for the center's industrial sponsors, who in turn provide feedback on the center's progress.
This year's review will begin on Thursday with a "State of the DSSC" talk by DSSC Director and ABB Professor of Engineering Jimmy Zhu. Following Zhu's talk, faculty and students will deliver presentations on topics including conventional perpendicular magnetic recording, heat assisted magnetic recording (HAMR), microwave assisted magnetic recording (MAMR) and bit patterned media (BPM). As in past years, the first day of the review will conclude with a poster session/reception and dinner at the Holiday Inn.
On Friday, members of the DSSC's Advisory Board will meet to discuss the review and the center's research, and will provide suggestions to DSSC leadership in a subsequent feedback session. Members of industry will also have the opportunity to meet individually with faculty and students on Friday to discuss research progress and opportunities.
