BSC at DATE 2016

15 March 2016

The 20th edition of the DATE conference is taking place in Dresden (Germany) from 14 to 18 March and BSC is participating in multiple events and activities.

The DATE conference and exhibition is the main European event bringing together designers and design automation users, researchers and vendors, as well as specialists in the hardware and software design, test and manufacturing of electronic circuits and systems. It puts strong emphasis on both ICs/SoCs, reconfigurable hardware and embedded systems, including embedded software.

The 20th edition of the DATE conference is taking place in Dresden (Germany) from 14 to 18 March and Barcelona Supercomputing Center (BSC) is participating in multiple events and activities.

BSC is present in 5 out of the 10 European project booths:

  • PROXIMA - Probabilistic real-time control of mixed-criticality multicore and manycore systems: booth EP 1
  • EuroSERVER - Green Computing Node for European Micro-servers: EP 5
  • EuroLab-4-HPC - Foundation for a Centre of Excellence in High-Performance Computing Systems: EP 5
  • ExaNoDe - European Exascale Processor Memory Node Design: EP 6
  • SAFURE - Safety and Security by design for interconnected mixed-critical cyberphysical systems: EP 7

BSC is also present in the HiPEAC booth, no. 10, attending questions about HiPEAC’s activities in high-performance and embedded systems research, jobs mobility, recruitment and more.

BSC’s Operating System Group Manager Francisco Cazorla is the chair of the session “Enhancing Memory in Next-Generation Platforms” taking place on Thursday, 17 March. This session presents three interesting papers describing different approaches for enhancing memory in order to obtain significant performance and energy improvements with respect to standard processor-centric architectures.

Dr Cazorla, on behalf of PROXIMA project, is also co-organising the workshop “W04 IMPAC: Getting more for less: Innovative MPSoC Architecture Paradigms for Analysability and Composability of Timing and Power”. This workshop aims at presenting and discussing the latest research results within this spectrum of topics, with emphasis on new on-chip architectures and analysis paradigms to enable fast, yet accurate, and dependable analysis, to support the incremental integration of heterogeneous applications in MPSoCs.

BSC will also participate in the technical programme, presenting the following papers:

Sebastian Kehr, Miloš Panić, Eduardo Quiñones, Bert Böddeker, Jorge Becerril Sandoval, Jaume Abella, Francisco J. Cazorla and Günter Schäfer

Two BSC PhD students are attending the PhD Forum, Milos Panic and Leonidas Kosmidis. Kosmidis is presenting Enabling Caches in Probabilistic Timing Analysis, who has been nominated as best PhD student of this forum.
