10:00am - 10:05am Welcome, by Yonghong Yan, Ron Brightwell, Maya B.
Gokhale and Xian-He Sun

10:05am - 11:05am Keynote: The 3rd Wall and the Need for Innovation in
Architectures, by Peter Kogge

Session Chair: Maya B. Gokhale

Abstract: In the past we have seen two major "walls" (memory and
power) whose vanquishing required significant advances in
architecture. This talk will discuss evidence on the emergence of a
new third wall dealing with data locality, which is prevalent in data
intensive applications where computation is dominated by memory access
& movement – not flops, Such apps exhibit large sets of often
persistent data, with little reuse during computation, no predictable
regularity, significantly different scaling characteristics, and where
streaming is becoming important. Solving such problems will take a new
set of innovations in architecture to overcome. In addition to data on
the new wall, the talk will introduce one possible technique: the
concept of migrating threads, and give evidence of its potential value
based on several benchmarks that have shown to have scaling
difficulties on conventional architectures..

Brief Bio: PETER M. KOGGE is the McCourtney Professor of Computer
Science and Engineering at the University of Notre Dame, a retired IBM
Fellow, and a founder of Emu Solutions, Inc. His research interests
are in massively parallel computing paradigms for unconventional
applications. He holds over 40 patents and is author of two books.
Prior projects included the IOP - the world’s second multi-threaded
parallel processor which flew on every Space Shuttle, EXECUBE - the
world's first multi-core processor and first processor on a DRAM chip.
His startup, Emu Solutions, has demonstrated the first scalable system
that utilizes mobile threads to attack large-scale big data and big
graph problems. In 2008, he led DARPA’s Exascale technology study
group, which resulted in a widely referenced report on exascale
computing. Dr. Kogge has received the Daniel Slotnick best paper award
(1994), the IEEE/ACM Seymour Cray award (2012), the IEEE Charles
Babbage award (2014), the IEEE Computer Pioneer award (2015), and the
Gauss best paper award (2015).
