We received a new grant from NSF to plan an I/UCRC for Assured and SCAlable Data Engineering (CASCADE)
The vision of the proposed NSF I/UCRC Center for Assured and SCAlable Data Engineering (CASCADE) is to enable a fundamental shift from current ad hoc approaches to the engineering of data systems, towards a principled framework for the engineering of data systems that support reliable and timely data-driven decision making. The center will support the innovation of data architectures and tools that can match the scale of the data, and that support timely and assured decision making.

K. Selcuk Candan is a Professor of Computer Science and Engineering at the School of Computing, Informatics, and Decision Science Engineering at the Arizona State University and is leading the EmitLab research group. He joined the department in August 1997, after receiving his Ph.D. from the Computer Science Department at the University of Maryland at College Park.
Prof. Candan's primary research interest is in the area of management of non-traditional, heterogeneous, and imprecise (such as multimedia, web, and scientific) data. His various research projects in this domain are funded by diverse sources, including the National Science Foundation, Department of Defense, Mellon Foundation, and DES/RSA (Rehabilitation Services Administration). He has published over 140 articles and many book chapters. He has also authored 9 patents. Recently, he co-authored a book titled "Data Management for Multimedia Retrieval" for the Cambridge University Press and co-edited "New Frontiers in Information and Software as Services: Service and Application Design Challenges in the Cloud" for Springer.
Prof. Candan served an editorial board member of one of the most respected database journals, the Very Large Databases (VLDB) journal. He is currently an associate editor for the IEEE Transactions on Multimedia and the Journal of Multimedia. He has served in the organization and program committees of various conferences. In 2006, he served as an organization committee member for SIGMOD'06, the flagship database conference of the ACM and one of the best conferences in the area of management of data. In 2008, he served as a PC Chair for another leading, flagship conference of the ACM, this time focusing on multimedia research (MM'08). More recently, he served as a program committee group leader for ACM SIGMOD’10. He also served in the review board of the Proceedings of the VLDB Endowment (PVLDB). In 2011, he served in the Executive Committee of ACM SIGMM.
In 2010, he was a program co-chair for ACM CIVR'10 conference and a program group leader for ACM SIGMOD'10. In 2011, he is serving as a general co-chair for the ACM MM'11 conference. In 2012, he served as a general co-chair for ACM SIGMOD'12. In 2015, he will serve as a general co-chair for IEEE International Conference on Cloud Engineering (IC2E'15).
He is a member of the Executive Committee of ACM SIGMOD and an ACM Distinguished Scientist.
