The University of Athens partner in the UniServer project will present are a tutorial on Sunday 3rd June
at the conference ACM/IEEE ISCA 2018 which is taking place in Los Angeles, California, USA.
The title of the tutorial is
Energy Efficient Computing in Multicore CPUs: Design Margins and Variability
The presentation will explain the main challenges of the massive process of characterization and
identification of the design margins. The focus will be on the ARMv8 multicore CPUs (X-Gene 2 and X-Gene 3 of
AppliedMicro) voltage margins and variability characterization and corresponding energy savings.
Furthermore, the presenters will discuss accurate and fast margins characterization, system services
to expose the hardware behavior to software layers, and modeling in simulators. More details of the contents
of the tutorial can be found at this link.
