The lecture, "Runtime Aware Architectures," wlll be presented at 10 a.m. Monday, Sept. 22, in the Coordinated Science Laboratory Auditoriuim (B02). 

Valero's lecture will discuss how runtime has to drive the design of future multi-cores to overcome the restrictions in terms of power, memory, programmability and resilience that multi-cores have. In his talk, he will introduce an approach towards a Runtime-Aware Architecture, a massively parallel architecture designed from the runtime’s perspective. Valero will also give an overview of the Barcelona Supercomputing Center at 2 p.m. Sept. 22 in the NCSA Auditorium.
