Advances in Methods for Adaptive Multicore Systems



Recent trends in the microprocessor industry have important ramifications for the design of the next generation of high-performance computing systems. By increasing number of cores, it is possible to improve the performance while keeping the power consumption unchanged. This trend has reached all areas of computing, ranging from `high-performance supercomputers to embedded multicore systems. Multicore systems need to be able to reconfigure themselves adaptively by monitoring their own condition and the surrounding environment in order to adapt themselves to different scenarios and performance-power requirements. Runtime monitoring becomes crucial in the emerging and future parallel and distributed multicore systems due to increase in variations and fault occurrences, thermal issues as well as due to the need for various adaptive optimizations. This special issue addresses all aspects of monitoring and reconfiguration of parallel and distributed multicore systems.

TOPICS (non-exclusive)
* Design space exploration and tradeoff analysis
* Scalable monitoring architectures for multicore systems
* Adaptive architectures for supercomputers
* Methods for distributed parallel system monitoring and reconfiguration
* Adaptive on/off chip communication (e.g. Networks-on-Chip)
* Energy-aware architectures and computing
* Adaptive fault tolerant architectures
* Thermal-aware architectures
* Dynamic power management techniques
* Adaptive techniques for FPGA based designs
* Adaptive architectures for 3D multicore systems
* Low-power monitor and sensor circuits
* Embedded multicore real-time systems
* Dynamic coherence protocols
* Formal methods for modeling, design and verification of monitoring and reconfiguration
* On-line testing, design of checkers
* Application analysis and parallelization for adaptive high-performance design
* Cases studies of multicore systems demonstrating adaptive implementation
