Kemal Ebcioğlu conducted research on architectures, compilers, and languages for fine-grain parallelism at the IBM T.J. Watson Research Center, Yorktown Heights, NY, from 1986 to 2005. Dr. Ebcioğlu proposed, launched, and led pioneering IBM Research projects on fine-grain parallel architectures, including VLIW (Very Long Instruction Word) and DAISY (Dynamically Architected Instruction Set from Yorktown), a binary translation project. His last position at IBM was co-leader of Programming Model and Tools, a 40-person group that was part of a US Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency-funded IBM supercomputer research project, emphasizing high programmer productivity for HPC.
Dr. Ebcioğlu received two IBM Outstanding Technical Achievement awards, and an IBM Divisional award. In 2006, he retired from IBM and founded Global Supercomputing Corporation, where he currently is president. Ebcioğlu received a Ph.D. degree in computer science from the State University of New York at Buffalo in 1986. Dr. Ebcioğlu has over 70 technical publications and 18 US patents. He has served as the International Federation for Information Processing Working Group 10.3 (Concurrent Systems) Chair in the period 2001-2006, and as the ACM Special Interest Group on Microarchitecture (SIGMICRO) Chair in the period 1999-2005. He has served as general chair, program chair, and steering committee chair for various conferences related to fine grain parallelism.
Dr. Ebcioğlu received the IEEE Computer Society B. Ramakrishna Rau Award in 2013, which is presented in recognition of substantial contributions in the field of computer microarchitecture and compiler code generation.
Ebcioğlu's present research interests include parallel scalable cloud computing and virtualization, high-productivity exascale systems, overcoming the memory wall barrier, and dynamic binary translation and optimization.
