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:

  • Scalable: emergent computing platforms operate at unprecedented scale, with commodity servers already commonly comprising hundreds of hosts, tens of thousands of cores, and thousands of storage devices.
  • Reliable: systems must tolerate and recover from hardware, software and network failures.
  • Secure: Systems are increasingly connected, and hence vulnerable to misuse and attack.

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 EPSRC 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
