High Performance Dense Linear Algebra on Low-Power Asymmetric Multicore Architectures
Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya –
In this talk we will present recent research focused on producing high performance Dense Linear Algebra (DLA) codes on Asymmetric Multicore Processors (AMP). We tailor the study on representative asymmetric multicore processors present in an ARM big.LITTLE architecture specifically designed for energy efficiency. We will discuss the challenges posed by these architectures and the way we have exploited parallelism in order to produce high performance implementations of the most significant DLA kernels within BLAS and LAPACK. We will stress the need for malleability and dynamically adapting to the available resources.
José-Ramón Herrero holds a position as associate professor in the Computer Architecture Department at UPC, BarcelonaTech. He has been teaching in the Barcelona School of Informatics (FIB) since 1994 where he has taught fourteen different courses corresponding to several areas (Computer Architecture, Operating Systems, and Parallel Programming). He has carried out the duties of Vice-Dean Head of Academic Studies and Vice-dean for Institutional and International Relations at Barcelona School of Informatics (FIB). He has combined these management and teaching tasks with research in HPC, mainly in the field of High Performance Scientific Computing.

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.
