On the last day of 2016 we are happy to announce that our paper Configurable XOR Hash Functions for Banked Scratchpad Memories in GPUs has been selected as one of the four editor’s picks of the IEEE Transactions of Computers of 2016.
The other three editor’s picks are:
– Memory Bandwidth Management for Efficient Performance Isolation in Multi-Core Platforms by Heechul Yun,
Gang Yao, Rodolfo Pellizzoni, Marco Caccamo and Lui Sha
– Optimised Multiplication Architectures for Accelerating Fully Homomorphic Encryption by Xiaolin Cao, Ciara
Moore, Maire O’Neill, Elizabeth O’Sullivan and Neil Hanley
– A New Design of In-Memory File System Based on File Virtual Address Framework by Edwin H.-M. Sha, Xianz-hang Chen, Qingfeng Zhuge, Liang Shi and Weiwen Jiang
IEEE Transactions on Computers (TC) has selected our paper Configurable XOR Hash Functions for Banked Scratchpad Memories in GPUs as the July 2016 Spotlight Paper. This month you can download the article for free from the IEEE TC website.
The first microserver from IBM/Astron has arrived at the TU/e. We have started benchmarking the microserver. Next, we plan to update our Bones source-to-source compiler and add the microserver as a target in the coming weeks.
More news on the microserver: IBM and ASTRON provide microserver prototypes to three Dutch partners, Nieuwe microserver van ASTRON kan Noord-Nederland honderden banen opleveren (in Dutch) and Data niet meer naar computer, maar computer naar de data (in Dutch).
