LEGaTO participates in the International Workshop on Exploitation of High Performance Heterogeneous Architectures and Accelerators (WEHA 2019) which takes place during the 2019 International Conference on High Performance Computing & Simulation (HPCS 2019) in Dublin, Ireland on 15-19 July, 2019. Julian Pavon Rivera, Ph.D. student in the Computer Architecture For Parallel Paradigms group at the Barcelona Supercomputing Center (BSC) gives a presentation titled, "A Novel FPGA-Based High Throughput Accelerator For Binary Search trees". The presentation is on Thursday 18 July at 8:00-10:10am at the Tara Suite of the Grand Hotel, Malahide Dublin.
More about this workshop:
For the last years, we have seen significant changes in processor architectures to improve computing performance and to overcome the physical limitations of increasing the clock frequency. The importance of hardware accelerators (GPUs, co-processors, FPGAs, etc.) has rapidly increased, especially in the computationally demanding disciplines such as realistic 3D computer graphics and high-performance scientific computing. The use of these accelerators for General-Purpose computation achieves speedups of orders of magnitude versus optimized CPU implementations, as well as reduces energy requirements. They have become powerful, capable, and inexpensive co-processors useful for a wide variety of computation. Moreover, it has become a common trend to see the development of clusters and supercomputers, where nodes include not only CPU cores but also accelerators. An efficient exploitation of these heterogeneous systems requires sharing the work among all available resources.
The aim of this workshop is to strongly encourage the exchange of experiences and knowledge in novel solutions exploiting and defining new trends in hardware accelerators and/or heterogeneous systems, including hardware architecture, resource management, software tools, and applications.
