Miquel Moreto, Barcelona Supercomputing Center/UPC:
Co-Designing HPC Architectures and the Runtime System


Abstract: In the last decade, the traditional ways to keep the increase of hardware performance to the rate predicted by Moore's Law vanished. Multi-core processors helped maintaining performance improvements for a while, but they still have to face multiple problems in terms of power consumption, programmability, resilience and memory. To overcome these challenges, a promising approach is to give more responsibility to the runtime system and to let it tightly collaborate with the hardware. In fact, we believe that the runtime system has to drive the design of future multi-cores architectures. In this talk, we will introduce an approach towards a Runtime-Aware Architecture, a massively parallel architecture designed from the runtime's perspective.

Miquel Moreto is a senior researcher at Barcelona Supercomputing Center (BSC) and an adjunct lecturer at UPC, Spain. He received the BS and MS degrees in mathematics and electrical engineering from UPC, and the PhD degree in 2010 in the Computer Architecture Department at the same university. He was a Fulbright postdoctoral fellow at the International Computer Science Institute (ICSI), affiliated with UC Berkeley (USA) from 2012 to 2013. In 2013, he joined the BSC to work on the ERC-funded project RoMoL and the Mont-Blanc 3 H2020 European project. His research interests include studying shared resources in multithreaded architectures and hardware-software co-design for future massively parallel systems.
