Taking in the view at ICERM (Institute for Computational and Experimental Research in Mathematics), just before the start of a meeting on exascale algorithms, architectures, and programming [www]. I (Rich) gave a talk on Kent’s preliminary work that is developing a power- and area-constrained model for co-designing algorithms and architectures. Never before have I heard references to work done “30 years ago” than at this meeting, at which very talented, experienced, and knowledgeable computational scientists abound.

Talk @ CMU

Rich is in drizzly Pittsburgh today visiting a number of great faculty and students at CMU, including members of the amazing SPIRAL team! He’ll also be giving the ECE Seminar a little later today. Can someone please explain the Pittsburgh Left, he asks?

Facing the Multicore Challenge II

Rich will give the lab’s “Balance principles” talk [PDF slides] as an invited keynote at the Facing the Multicore Challenge II conference in Karlsruhe, Germany. His hosts are a delight and the conference, which focuses on young scientists, is energetic and sharp. Overall, a great and highly recommended meeting! [Photo: ZKM Car Culture Exhibit]

Talk @ PPAM’11

I (Rich) am giving a talk today [PDF slides] at the International Conference on Parallel Processing and Applied Mathematics (PPAM), which is being held in the beautiful and historic town of Toru?, Poland. This is a great and well-organized meeting, and I look forward to the next meeting!

HotPar’11: Balance principles for algorithm-architecture co-design

This just in — we’ll be presenting a paper at this year’s HotPar workshop, on the topic of “co-design”:

  • K. Czechowski, C. Battaglino, C. McClanahan, A. Chandramowlishwaran, R. Vuduc. “Balance principles for algorithm-architecture co-design.” In Proc. USENIX Workshop on Hot Topics in Parallelism (HotPar), May 2011. (accepted)

Gordon Bell & HPC PhD, snagged!

Congrats to the Rahimian/Biros-led team, who won this year’s Gordon Bell Prize at SC! In addition, Aparna also won the George Michael Memorial HPC Fellowship, two of which are given out each year to rising-star PhD students.

Overall, a great week for Georgia Tech. Go, Buzz!
