Speaker Title Abstract Dawud Hage QA in petal search: challenges, opportunities and future directions Modern search engines need to better understand what users are looking for rather than being a simple index of webpages. For the information seeking need, question answering plays an important role in fullfilling this need. In this talk I would like […]

The Programming Language Laboratory of the Huawei Edinburgh Research Centre are delighted to start a new research project with Prof. Phil Wadler from the University of Edinburgh on the topic of type systems for effect handlers.  The project will focus on simplifications static scoping of algebraic effect handlers and on developing gradual types for the […]

Abstract The recent development of IoT and smart spaces demand the availability of location context in every device and everywhere. However, improving the user’s experience under the “smart” schema contradicts the tedious calibration commonly operated to enable indoor positioning. Until now, modelling signal propagation, such as Bluetooth and WiFi, set the pillars for indoor positioning […]

OpenMP Taskloop Dependences Authors   Marcos Maroñas Bravo (Huawei Edinburgh RC, Programming Languages team) Xavier Teruel Vicenç Beltran Abstract Exascale systems will contain multicore/manycore processors with high core count in each node. Therefore, using a model that relaxes the synchronization, such as data-flow, is crucial to adequately exploit the potential of the hardware. The flexibility of the […]

Abstract Developing a new programming language, constructing a new domain-specific compiler, writing a new verification tool, optimizing a large application, designing a microprocessor, or verifying some of its components, all of these tasks require today a multi-year project. While most of the underlying problems are inherently hard and cannot be accelerated magically, we are additionally […]

About speaker: Martin Berger is a formal verification expert in the ISA research team. Before joining Huawei, he was a senior lecturer at the University of Sussex.

Our new team member Giulio is giving an invited talk at LSFA, an FSCD-associated workshop. More details on the workshop web page: https://mat.unb.br/lsfa2021/pages/invited.html Understanding the lambda-calculus via (non-)linearity and rewriting.Abstract: The lambda-calculus is the model of computation underlying functional programming languages and proof assistants. Actually, there are many lambda-calculi, depending on the evaluation mechanism (e.g., […]

About the Speaker Professor Buneman is a research leader in extending databases to new data models, type systems, and languages. He chairs the Steering Committee for the University of Edinburgh – Huawei Distributed Data Management and Processing Research Laboratory. Abstract If we think of a database as an artifact for publishing data — and certainly […]
