9 AM – 10 AM Keynote speaker: Pr. Daniel Mossé, University of Pittsburgh with a talk entitled Scheduling in Asymmetric Computing.

  • Keynote summary: In asymmetric computing, different cores have different capabilities, in order to enable energy savings when workloads are variable. One of the big issues, which this talk is focused on, is how to choose the appropriate cores to the threads/processes running, and how to scale the frequency/voltage appropriately in order to save energy overall, without sacrificing too much the performance of the running processes (soft-real-time constraints).
  • Keynote speaker bio: Daniel Mosse received a BS in Mathematics from the University of Brasilia in 1986, and MS and PhD degrees in Computer Science from the University of Maryland in 1990 and 1993, respectively. He is in the faculty of the University of Pittsburgh since 1992. The current major thrusts of his research include real-time, power management, and networks. Typically funded by NSF and DARPA, Dr. Mosse’s projects combine theoretical results and actual implementations. Dr. Mosse has served on PCs and as PC chair for most major IEEE- and ACM-sponsored real-time conferences. He was an associate editor of IEEE Transactions on Computers and is currently on the editorial board of the Kluwer Journal of Real-Time Systems. He is currently also involved in a start-up that deals with per-room climate control:
