Folded and Error Tolerant Architectures for Digital Signal Processing: Design and Implementation
University of Nis –
The lecture will be organized in three parts. The first part will be devoted to the University of Niš, and Computers Science Department at the Faculty of Electronic Engineering. We will briefly explain the organizational structure of the University, commenting research and teaching activities at Computer Science Department.
A review of our research in the field of design and application of folded architectures will be given in the second part. We will present few design examples emphasizing specific design goals. As the main design example will present the synthesis of configurable bit-plane processing arrays for FIR filtering. The H.264/AVC application of configurable folded array, as the deblocking filter implementation with low-gate count, will be presented. Results of the architecture implementation as a real-time deblocking accelerator for mobile embedded computing platforms will be given.
The third part of presentation addresses our latest results in the error tolerant architecture design. We will present a method for trading computational correctness for an additional chip area involved by fault-tolerance implementation. The method will be described in a formal way and demonstrated for the BP array. A mathematical path based on transitive closure that generates an error significance map for the BP array will be explained. The design tradeoff will be demonstrated through FPGA implementation.

Workshop “Metabolism and mathematical models: Two for a tango” – 2nd Edition
Title: Workshop Metabolism and mathematical models: Two for a tango – 2nd Edition
Dates: October 25-26, 2022
Location: This workshop will be held in a virtual way
The topic of this workshop is metabolism in general, with a special focus, although not exclusive, on parasitology. Besides an exploration of the biological, biochemical and biomedical aspects, the workshop will also aim at presenting some of the mathematical modelling, algorithmic theory and software development that have become crucial to explore such aspects.
This workshop is being organised in the context of two projects, both with the Inria European Team Erable. One of the projects involves a partnership with the University of São Paulo (USP), in São Paulo, Brazil, more specifically the Institute of Mathematics and Statistics (IME) and the Institute of Biomedical Sciences – Inria Associated Team Capoeira – and the other involves the Inesc-ID/IST in Portugal, ETH in Zürich and EMBL in Heidelberg – H2020 Twinning Project Olissipo.
The workshop is open to all members of these two projects but also, importantly, to the community in general.
