  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. Scheduling Algorithms For Fault-Tolerant Real-Time Systems

    Author : Risat Pathan; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Online Scheduling; Partitioned Scheduling; Rate-Monotonic Scheduling; Multiprocessors; Uniprocessor; Task-Splitting Algorithms; Periodic Task Scheduling; Real-Time Systems; Fault-Tolerant Scheduling;

    Abstract : This thesis deals with the problem of designing efficient fault-tolerant real-time scheduling algorithms for independent periodic tasks on uni- and multiprocessor platforms. The well-known Rate-Monotonic (RM) scheduling algorithm is assumed as it is widely used in many commercial systems due to its simplicity and ease of implementation. READ MORE

  3. 3. Mapping Concurrent Applications to Multiprocessor Systems with Multithreaded Processors and Network on Chip-Based Interconnections

    Author : Ruxandra Pop; Petru Eles; Shashi Kumar; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : Network on Chip; Multiprocessor Embedded Systems; Task Mapping; Task Scheduling; Multithreading; Simultaneous Multithreading; Response Time Estimation; Genetic Algorithms; List Scheduling; Soft Deadline; Task Graphs; TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIKVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : Network on Chip (NoC) architectures provide scalable platforms for designing Systems on Chip (SoC) with large number of cores. Developing products and applications using an NoC architecture offers many challenges and opportunities. A tool which can map an application or a set of applications to a given NoC architecture will be essential. READ MORE

  4. 4. Locality-aware Scheduling and Characterization of Task-based Programs

    Author : Ananya Muddukrishna; Mats Brorsson; Christoph Kessler; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Locality-aware; Task scheduling; OpenMP; Informations- och kommunikationsteknik; Information and Communication Technology;

    Abstract : Modern computer architectures expose an increasing number of parallel features supported by complex memory access and communication structures. Currently used task scheduling techniques perform poorly since they focus solely on balancing computation load across parallel features and remain oblivious to locality properties of support structures.

  5. 5. Improving Performance and Quality-of-Service through the Task-Parallel Model​ : Optimizations and Future Directions for OpenMP

    Author : Artur Podobas; Mats Brorsson; Georgi Gaydadjiev; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Task Parallel; OpenMP; Scheduling; OmpSs; multicore; manycore; Datalogi; Computer Science;

    Abstract : With the failure of Dennard's scaling, which stated that shrinking transistors will be more power-efficient, computer hardware has today become very divergent. Initially the change only concerned the number of processor on a chip (multicores), but has today further escalated into complex heterogeneous system with non-intuitive properties -- properties that can improve performance and power consumption but also strain the programmer expected to develop on them.
