Our paper “Compiling For Niceness: Mitigating Contention for QoS in Warehouse Scale Computers” won the Best Paper Award at this year’s CGO Conference. Fantastic News.
Our paper, “The Impact of Memory Subsystem Resource Sharing on Datacenter Applications” from ISCA 2011 has been recognized as one of 2011′s excellent papers by Google’s official research blog. Check it out on Google’s Research Blog.
My paper “Heterogeneity in “Homogeneous” Warehouse-Scale Computers: A Performance Opportunity” is one of three papers selected for a special session at HPCA 2012 for the “Best CAL papers of 2011.” I look forward to presenting this work at the conference.
I’m happy to announce that my paper “Bubble-Up: Increasing Utilization in Modern Warehouse Scale Computers via Sensible Co-locations” has been selected for the 2012 IEEE Micro Top Picks. My paper was one of 12 papers selected out of 77 papers published at top venues for computer architecture in 2011. Thats an acceptance rate of 15%.
My recent proposal to this round of Google research grants was funded, entitled: ”A Performance Aware re-Design of Modern Cloud Platforms”
My recent publication “Heterogeneity in “Homogeneous” Warehouse-Scale Computers: A Performance Opportunity” in the most recent publication of the “Computer Architecture Letters” (going to press now) has been selected as the “Spotlight Feature” by the editorial board. This is a fantastic honor.

i’ve just finished the first version of the new cgo 2012 website, and it has a new look compared to prior years. being web chair has been a delightful experience thus far and i’m sure next year’s cgo will be the best yet! check out the website here:
i am happy to be a part of the organizing team for the 2012 International Symposium on Code Generation and Optimization (CGO). my official title is web chair so expect a fantastic webpage for next year’s CGO. CGO 2012 will be held in sunny san jose, california!
CGO is a top tier venue for works involving compilers, runtime systems, static/dynamic analysis, and hardware/software co-design, among others. be sure to get your best submissions ready, the call for papers will be out soon!
i’ve been invited to give a talk about my research to the epic group at stanford. my talk is entitled “Attacking Rigidness and Cross-layer Oblivion in the Cloud.” my talk will be held somewhere in the gates building from 1pm to 2pm today (march 29th 2011). this is going to be fuuunnnnn.
i am honored to be speaking at the CRA-W/CDC Workshop on Multicore Systems – Architectures, Runtime Systems and Software Development at ASPLOS this year. i will be talking about the art and practice of multicore research and how i’ve applied it to a number of problems in this space. more info at: http://www.cs.virginia.edu/~soffa/multicore-workshop/
