  3. Invited speaker University of Delaware, 2011
  4. SPEC Research Group Officer (2011-2013), Steering committee member and IBM Primary representative for SPEC RG. As SPEC steering committee member, I helped form the new group, define its charter, and launch its various activities. As first secretary of the group, my responsibilities included the planning of meetings and meeting agendas, the management of meeting minutes, the management of attendance record and voting rights, the management of action items and reminders, the coordination of assignments, and many more. In addition, I also served on the Distinguished Dissertation Awards Committee and was also actively involved in the reviewing of submitted tools to the Research Group. I am instrumental in starting the Cloud working group and promoted its mission within IBM resulting in an IBMer (Erich Nahum) being elected to lead the group. SPEC organization recognized these via the SPECTacular award in 2012.
