Reliable, Secure and Scalable Software Systems (RS4) Workshop

1st September  2017



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  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


Attendance is free, but to facilitate catering, please register your intention to attend at by Wednesday 16th August  2017.
