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 https://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
If you would like to present at the workshop, please send a title and abstract to Inah Omoronyia Inah.Omoronyia@glasgow.ac.uk for approval by Friday 19th May 2017.
