Significant contributions of PROXIMA at DATE 2016

Monday, March 14, 2016

The DATE conference and exhibition is the main European event bringing together designers and design automation users, researchers and vendors, as well as specialists in the hardware and software design, test and manufacturing of electronic circuits and systems. It puts strong emphasis on both ICs/SoCs, reconfigurable hardware and embedded systems, including embedded software. The 20th edition of the DATE conference is taking place in Dresden (Germany) from 14 to 18 March and PROXIMA is participating in multiple events and activities.

  • The Project is present in a joint booth with Mixed Criticality Cluster (MCC) together with CONTREX and DREAMS projects
  • Francisco Cazorla, PROXIMA’s technical coordinator is the chair of the session “Enhancing Memory in Next-Generation Platforms” taking place on Thursday, 17 March. This session presents three interesting papers describing different approaches for enhancing memory in order to obtain significant performance and energy improvements with respect to standard processor-centric architectures.
  • Dr Cazorla, is also co-organising the workshop “W04 IMPAC: Getting more for less: Innovative MPSoC Architecture Paradigms for Analysability and Composability of Timing and Power”. This workshop aims at presenting and discussing the latest research results within this spectrum of topics, with emphasis on new on-chip architectures and analysis paradigms to enable fast, yet accurate, and dependable analysis, to support the incremental integration of heterogeneous applications in MPSoCs.
  • Two BSC PhD students are attending the PhD Forum, Milos Panic and Leonidas Kosmidis. Kosmidis is presenting Enabling Caches in Probabilistic Timing Analysis which includes several technologies used in PROXIMA.
