Keynote @ HCW18 workshop: Ümit V. Çatalyürek on "Challenges and Opportunities in Heterogeneous Computing – Applications Perspective" -- Mon 5/21, 4-5 pm

Link: Program | HCW 2018 27th International Heterogeneity in Computing Workshop

Abstract: Heterogeneity in computing has been with us for a long time, and it is here to stay for a foreseeable future, too. In this talk, with some diverse set of application examples, ranging from histopathology image analysis to graph analytics, we will discuss the challenges of application developers for developing efficient, scalable and maintainable applications for heterogeneous systems, and associated opportunities for systems researchers in this field.

Invited talk at HPPAC'18: Anne Benoit (ENS Lyon and Georgia Tech) on "Trade-offs between performance, reliability, and energy consumption" -- Mon May 21, 10-10:45 am

Link: hppac18

Abstract: In this talk, I will focus on large-scale systems subject to failures, and explain how to account for energy consumption when dealing with classical resilience techniques. Many parallel scientific applications use non-blocking and periodic coordinated checkpointing to enforce resilience. I will provide a model and detailed formulas for total execution time and consumed energy, characterize the optimal period for both objectives, and assess the range of time/energy trade-offs to be made by instantiating the model with a set of realistic scenarios for Exascale systems. Also, the use of dynamic voltage and frequency scaling (DVFS) can help save energy, but at the price of performance degradation. Consider the execution model where a set of K different speeds is given, and whenever a failure occurs, a different re-execution speed may be used. Can this help? I will address the following bi-criteria problem: how to compute the optimal checkpointing period to minimize energy consumption while bounding the degradation in performance. We solve this bi-criteria problem by providing a closed-form solution for the checkpointing period, and demonstrate via a comprehensive set of simulations that a different re-execution speed can indeed help.

Bio: Anne Benoit is an associate professor in the Computer Science Laboratory LIP at École Normale Supérieure de Lyon, France, and she is currently a visiting associate professor at School of Computational Science and Engineering, Georgia Tech, Atlanta, USA.
