Evaluation of microarchitectures: challenges and metrics
The midlifekicker metric is presented, mainly for evaluating microarchitectures mostly during the design process. We assume a microarchitecture designed at a time T-1 and estimate if a new microarchitecture projected for time T has really advantages over the microarchitecture designed at T-1 and remapped on the same technology at time T. We consider that microarchitects minimize the product cycles per instruction (CPI) x cycle time and estimate performance based on CPI with a “soft-threshold” to include cycle time product effects. Experimental results are presented for different IA-32 based processors. For the considered microarchitectures, it is shown that the performance has not been significantly improved in the last few years.

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.
The program and more details are available here.
