  1. 1. Understanding Task Parallelism : Providing insight into scheduling, memory, and performance for CPUs and Graphics

    Author : Germán Ceballos; David Black-Schaffer; Erik Hagersten; Samuel Thibault; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Task-based programming; Task Scheduling; Analytical Cache Model; Scheduling; Runtime Systems; Computer Graphics rendering ; Computer Science; Datavetenskap;

    Abstract : Maximizing the performance of computer systems while making them more energy efficient is vital for future developments in engineering, medicine, entertainment, etc. However, the increasing complexity of software, hardware, and their interactions makes this task difficult. READ MORE

  2. 2. Communicating performance measures : Supporting continuous improvement in manufacturing companies

    Author : Carina Larsson; Mattias Strand; Anne Persson; Anna Syberfeldt; Mats Winroth; Högskolan i Skövde; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Communication; performance measures; manufacturing; continuous improvement; Production and Automation Engineering; Produktion och automatiseringsteknik;

    Abstract : Manufacturing enterprises are a key driver of economic growth (Eurostat, 2016). Implementing continuous improvement (CI) is commonly used to increase competitiveness (Hyland et al., 2007), but despite the well-known theory of CI, many manufacturing companies fail in implementing it (Bhasin, 2012; Nordin et al., 2012; Tiwari et al.

  3. 3. Measuring quality of occupational performance based on self-report and observation : development and validation of instruments to evaluate ADL task performance

    Author : Eva Ejlersen Waehrens; Anne G Fisher; Hans Lund; Bente Danneskiold-Samsöe; Lena von Koch; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; activities of daily living; acquired brain injury; ADL evaluation; ADL task performance; chronic disease; chronic widespread pain; interview; observation; occupational therapy; observation-based evaluation; questionnaire; Rasch measurement; rheumatic diseases; Occupational therapy; Arbetsterapi; Occupational therapy; arbetsterapi;

    Abstract : Background People with rheumatic or neurologic conditions are commonly referred for occupational therapy because of decreased ability to perform ADL tasks. Upon referral, occupational therapists use a client-centred, occupationfocused approach when evaluating a person's perceived and observed quality of ADL task performance to clarify the nature and extent of the person’s problems, plan interventions and determine effectiveness of interventions.

  4. 4. Mind your Language, All Right? Performance-dependent neural patterns of language

    Author : Helene van Ettinger-Veenstra; Maria Engström; Peter Lundberg; Thomas Karlsson; Anita McAllister; Karsten Specht; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Language ability; performance; fMRI; functional magnetic resonance imaging; Broca; Wernicke; temporal lobe; inferior frontal gyrus; reading; fluency; lateralization; lateralisation; right hemisphere; performance-dependent; neural activation;

    Abstract : The main aim of this dissertation was to investigate the difference in neural language patternsrelated to language ability in healthy adults. The focus lies on unraveling the contributions of theright‐hemispheric homologues to Broca’s area in the inferior frontal gyrus (IFG) and Wernicke’s areain the posterior temporal and inferior parietal lobes.

  5. 5. Performance Monitoring, Analysis, and Real-Time Introspection on Large-Scale Parallel Systems

    Author : Xavier Aguilar; Erwin Professor; Karl Doctor; Jens Professor; Jesus Labarta; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; HPC; performance analysis; performance monitoring; performance introspection; parallel computing; Datalogi; Computer Science;

    Abstract : High-Performance Computing (HPC) has become an important scientific driver. A wide variety of research ranging for example from drug design to climate modelling is nowadays performed in HPC systems. Furthermore, the tremendous computer power of such HPC systems allows scientists to simulate problems that were unimaginable a few years ago. READ MORE
