| Hello all--

| A final reminder:
| Prof. Josep Torrellas from UIUC will be visiting Princeton and giving
| a seminar on Tuesday April 30. The seminar will be from 12:30-1:30
| in CS Room 302, with pizza beforehand starting at noon.
| Title/abstract below.

| I have reserved a 1-hour slot for him to meet with grad students from
| 2:30-3:30pm that day. That will occur in CS room 401. Any interested
| grad students can feel free to just show up for that.

| Thanks,
| Margaret

| Toward Programmable High-Performance Multicores

| One of the biggest challenges facing us today is how to design
| parallel
| architectures that attain high performance while efficiently
| supporting
| a programmable environment. In this talk, I describe novel
| organizations
| that will make the next generation of multicores more programmable
| and
| higher performance. Specifically, I show how to automatically reuse
| the
| upcoming transactional memory hardware for optimized code generation.
| Next,
| I describe a prototype of Record&Replay hardware that brings program
| monitoring for debugging and security to the next level of
| capability. I
| also describe a new design of hardware fences that is overhead-free
| and
| requires no software support. Finally, if time permits, I will
| outline
| architectural support to detect sequential consistency violations
| transparently.

| BIO:
| Josep Torrellas is a Professor of Computer Science and
| Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Illinois at
| Urbana-Champaign (UIUC). He is a Fellow of IEEE and ACM. He is the
| Director of the Center for Programmable Extreme-Scale Computing, a
| center funded by DARPA, DOE, and NSF that focuses on architectures
| for
| extreme energy and power efficiency. He also directs the
| Intel-Illinois
| Parallelism Center (I2PC), a center created by Intel to advance
| parallel
| computing in clients. He has made contributions to parallel computer
| architecture in the areas of shared-memory multiprocessor
| organizations,
| cache hierarchies and coherence protocols, thread-level speculation,
| and hardware and software reliability. He received a Ph.D. from
| Stanford University.
