New Metrics and Models for a Post-ISA Era: Managing Complexity and Scaling Performance in Heterogeneous Parallelism and Internet-of-Things
July 24, 9:00am, Hitotsubashi Hall
Pushed by both application and technology trends, today’s computer systems employ unprecedented levels of heterogeneity, parallelism, and complexity as they seek to extend performance scaling and support new application domains. From datacenters to Internet-of-Things devices, these scaling gains come at the expense of degraded hardware-software abstraction layers, increased complexity at the hardware-software interface, and increased challenges for software reliability, interoperability, and performance portability This talk will explore how new metrics, models, and analysis techniques can be effective in this “Post-ISA” era of shifting abstractions. The talk will cover hardware and software design opportunities, methods for formal verification, and a look into the implications on technologies like IoT.
July 24, COMPSAC Welcome Reception
2018 IEEE Computer Society Technical Achievement Award
A certificate and $2,000 honorarium are presented for outstanding and innovative contributions to the fields of computer and information science and engineering or computer technology, usually within the past ten, and not more than fifteen years. Margaret Martonosi is the 2018 Technical Achievement Award Winner for her contributions to power-aware computing and energy-constrained mobile sensor networks. The award will be officially presented to Martonosi at the COMPSAC Welcome Reception on July 24 at Gakushikaikan.
