Research Groups


Computer architecture, hardware-software interaction and optimization
Research area: Computer Science

This research group addresses research topics strictly related to technological opportunities, issues and development constraints of modern and future computing systems exposing multi-/many-core parallelism both for high-performance server/HPC architectures and embedded/personal devices. Major objectives are performance and, especially, energy efficiency as the latter is the major limiting factor in the evolution of microprocessors and systems.
As a cost-cutting issue, the group deals also with their effective and, most of all productive, programmability in the complex upcoming scenario where parallelism and computing heterogeneity play a dominant role.
Furthermore, the group competences span also from architecture-aware performance analysis and characterization up to novel proposals and enhancements at the hardware, software, ISA (HW-SW interface), parallelization levels in integration with the adoption of innovative technologies (e.g. integrated photonics).
