The era of many-core computing is transforming much of computing and areas like AI, sensor nets, IoT, and big data are just some examples. Many-core software systems have three main components: computation, i.e. the algorithms to be performed, data encoded in data structures and data stores, and communication between compute units:
Software Systems = Computation + Data + Communication
Such systems must resolve three inter-linked challenges in each of the components to be:
RS4 is a 1 day workshop that brings together academic and industrial researchers to outline both challenges and promising approaches.
The workshop is sponsored by SICSA http://www.sicsa.ac.uk/ and the MaRIONet Manycore Network, and is part of the 60th anniversary of the School of Computing Science, at the University of Glasgow
Invited Speakers include:
Alastair Reid, ARM: Security in the trusted computing base
Michele Weiland, EPCC: Exascale Computing
Alastair Murray, Codeplay Software: Safety critical software
David Irvine, Maidsafe: Security and privacy of next generation internet systems
Tony Printezis, Twitter: JVM/GC engineer
