Power aware scheduling for heterogeneous systems


Prof. Avi Mendelson, Technion Israel Institute of Technology, Israel  -- 28-04-2016


Energy, power and thermal limitations were the main cause for pushing the industry to refocus from single threaded architectures/programming toward multithreaded parallel environment. Heterogeneous systems were found to be even more energy efficient in compare to homogeneous systems, so many of the modern systems are focusing at these types of architectures.

My talk will mainly focus on the scheduling aspects of heterogeneous systems in general and on SoC based architectures in particular. I will address the power aware scheduling for two types of systems; general purpose and real-time. I will provide a short description of existing solutions and BKMs for each family of solutions and will extend the discussion to the research I am conducting with my students in this area.


Avi Mendelson received his bachelor and master diploma in Computer Science from Technion Israel Institute of Technology, Israel . In 1990, he obtained his PhD degree in Electrical Englineering from University of Masachusetts, USA. 

He  has been lecturer, adjunct professor and visiting professor in EE and CS department of Technion Israel Institute of Technology since 1991. He has also been a senior researcher, manager and consultant for many companies such as Intel, Microsoft Israel, Shannon Lab, etc.  In 2008, he received the Inter Achievement Award for leading the architecture of the CMP architecture Intel produces. 

His research interests include operating systems, computer architecture, HPC computers, cloud computing/computers and low power computers.
