Programming Non-Volatile Memory
School of Computer and Communication Sciences (IC) at EPFL (École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne)”” –
New memory technologies are changing the computer systems landscape. Motivated by the power limitations of DRAM, new, non-volatile memory (NVM) technologies — such as ReRAM, PCM, and STT-RAM — are likely to be widely deployed in server and commodity computers in the near future. These memories erase the classical dichotomy between slow, non-volatile disks or SSDs and fast, volatile memory, greatly expanding the possible uses of durability mechanisms.
Taking advantage of non-volatility is not as simple as just writing data to NVM. Without programming support, it is challenging to write correct, efficient code that permits recovery after a power failure since the restart mechanism must find a consistent state in the durable storage. This problem is well-known in the database community, and a significant portion of a DB system is devoted to ensuring recoverability after failures.
James Larus is Professor and Dean of the School of Computer and Communication Sciences (IC) at EPFL (École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne). Prior to joining IC in October 2013, Larus was a researcher, manager, and director in Microsoft Research for over 16 years and an assistant and associate professor in the Computer Sciences Department at the University of Wisconsin, Madison.

OLISSIPO Twin Seminar III
We are happy to announce the next OLISSIPO Twin Seminar on Computational Biology – Protein driven machine learning and network approaches for precision medicine – which will take place online on 10 February 2022, 13:00-14:30 (WEST – Lisbon) / 14:00-15:30 (CEST). This seminar will be delivered by Emanuel Gonçalves (INESC-ID and Instituto Superior Técnico) and Pedro Beltrão (ETH Zürich), and chaired by Thomas Naake (EMBL).
OLISSIPO – Fostering Computational Biology Research and Innovation in Lisbon – is an international research project funded by the European Commission within its H2020 Research and Innovation programme, and aims to enhance the competences in Computational Biology at INESC-ID and – though its strong link to Instituto Superior Técnico / Universidade de Lisboa – to create an international pole of excellence in multi-disciplinary science in Portugal. OLISSIPO is coordinated by Susana Vinga, INESC-ID researcher and member of its Board of Directors, as well as Associate Professor at Instituto Superior Técnico.
The Twin Seminars contribute to disseminate the scientific work and expertise of INESC-ID and all the Consortium that includes Inria, ETH Zürich and EMBL. These seminars comprise two short presentations, one researcher from Lisbon and one from a twin international institution working on similar topics in Computational Biology, and are open to anyone interested in computational biology.
