Some weeks ago we were pleased to announce that we had a paper accepted at the PACT-2012 Conference: “Power-Aware Multi-Core Simulation for Early Design Stage Hardware/Software Co-Optimization”, by Wim Heirman, Souradip Sarkar, Trevor E. Carlson, Ibrahim Hur, and Lieven Eeckhout. The paper can now be found in our publications section.
A quick message to tell you that Sniper/McPAT is now publicly available and included in Sniper 3.02, which can be downloaded from http://snipersim.org/. A paper that gives more details is accepted at PACT-2012 – you can read more about it in this news item.
We are pleased to announce the acceptance of a paper titled “Power-Aware Multi-Core Simulation for Early Design Stage Hardware/Software Co-Optimization” (by Wim Heirman, Souradip Sarkar, Trevor E. Carlson, Ibrahim Hur, and Lieven Eeckhout) at the 21st International Conference on Parallel Architectures and Compilation Techiques (PACT-2012). The paper will be made available later, but here is the abstract: Co-optimizing hardware and [...]
We are very proud to announce the release of a software library for high-performance shared-memory parallel sparse matrix–vector (SpMV) multiplications. The library implements various strategies, both sequential and parallel, some which compare well to, or exceed, performance of current state-of-the-art software. A paper introducing the new methods has been submitted for publication, but we have made a preprint available. http://www.cs.kuleuven.be/publicaties/rapporten/tw/TW614.pdf (Paper) [...]
Happy Birthday Intel ExaScience Lab ! We’ve been running for two years now… if you want to see what we’ve been up to, the Publications section and News section might be a good start. Now we’re off to a celebration, but stay tuned for more news.
We are happy to announce that the paper “The Impact of Global Communication Latency at Extreme Scales on Krylov Methods“ (by Thomas Ashby, Pieter Ghysels, Wim Heirman, Wim Vanroose) was accepted as regular paper at the 12th International Conference on Algorithms and Architectectures for Parallel Processing (ICA3PP-2012). The final version will be available later in our publications [...]
Join us for a tutorial on Sniper at the prestigious 39th International Symposium on Computer Architecture (ISCA), which will take place in Portland, Oregon. The tutorial is scheduled for Saturday, June 9th in the afternoon. For more information, visit this website.
On Friday 4 May 2012, from 9:30 – 12:00, the ExaScience Lab will organize a PEANO Workshop in collaboration with the developers of the PEANO framework. The venue of the workshop is imec – Container A. Guests from outside the lab are welcome and have to present themselves at the imec Reception desk. The event is free [...]
A scalable GMRES (Generalized Minimal RESidual) solver developed at the Intel lab Flanders has been implemented in the well-known and widely-used PETSc library (see here for the actual implementation). PETSc is a suite of data structures and routines for the scalable (parallel) solution of scientific applications modeled by partial differential equations. The algorithm, called pipelined GMRES, is described in [...]
On Wednesday May 23 2012, Matthias Christen (Università della Svizzera italiana, Lugano, Switserland) will give a seminar on his Patus Auto-tuning framework at 10:30 at imec (update: in room Cafetaria -1.A). The event is free of charge, but you have to confirm your attendance by sending a mail to albert-janyzelmancskuleuvenbe
