Month of the Most Deadlines

September 8th, 2011 No comments

Which month has the greatest number of deadlines for paper submission to conferences in our field? Well, you need to check all the conference deadlines, which is by no means an easy task, but these days it seems that September is definitely in the top class. In comparison, October/November seems to have far less. So what’s in September? DATE, CGO, IPDPS (October 1, so practically September), and I just received C4P for PECCS. Lesson? Summer is perhaps the best season to concentrate on conference papers…

UNIST internet tip – DNS

September 2nd, 2011 No comments

Why sometimes can’t I connect to ecl.unist.ac.kr or some other UNIST sites?
Most likely, the server is fine, but the DNS (Domain Name Server) setting has a problem.
Then how should I fix it?
The short answer is to use the primary DNS only: 10.0.2.204, or if you must use the secondary as well, try this: 10.0.2.220.

According to the DNS Setting Guide, 2009.8 version, the primary DNS of UNIST is 10.0.2.204, and the secondary is 114.70.1.52. Or if you use WUNIST_AAA (campus-wide wireless network) the secondary DNS is 10.0.2.205. Those secondary DNS servers all have problems. The 114.70.1.52 server returns external IPs for internal server domains, which don’t work more often than it do. The 10.0.2.205 server doesn’t work at all. So the solution is just to remove the secondary DNS, and use the primary only.

What if I’m using DHCP — for example, WUNIST_AAA? Then you can’t get rid of 10.0.2.205, but it should be fine because 10.0.2.205 doesn’t return anything, so your computer will try the primary only anyway.
