1.    Liquid Computing - the rVEX approach: ILP-driven dynamic core adaptations

Modern embedded workloads are becoming increasingly dynamic. Currently, these workloads are executed on heterogeneous multicore systems such as big.LITTLE platforms. 
However, these suffer from a number of drawbacks such as limited different core types (typically 2) and migration penalties.
This talk will briefly discuss the Liquid Computing concept, which is one of the research themes of the CE lab, and the rVEX polymorphic VLIW processor, which is the current implementation of it.
Following, recent work will be discussed about using ILP information to drive processor adaptations.
We have two approaches to obtain the ILP information; by using an additional compiler analysis pass or by measuring it during run-time.

 2.    A brief introduction to quantum computing

1. A classification of computing
2. Where is the quantum acceleration from?
3. What can quantum computers do? - famous quantum algorithms  & typical applications
4. What does a quantum computer look like?
5. (If time is enough) Short introduction to the state-of-the-art


Joost Hoozemans received his BSc in Computer Science from Utrecht University in 2011 and his MSc in Computer Engineering from Delft University of Technology in 2014. His interests include Operating System support for dynamic VLIW processors, ILP-based configuration scheduling, static schedulability on dynamic processors, VLIW-based image processing platforms.

Xiang Fu received his BSc degree  in 2011, major in telecommunication, the department of Electronic engineering, Tsinghua University (THU), Beijing, China. He received his master degree in 2014, major in computer architecture (especially cache structure), college of computer, National University of Defense Technology (NUDT), Changsha, China. He is now Ph.D. candidate from 2014 ~ present, cosupervised by Koen (promotor) and Leo DiCarlo (co-promotor) from the quantum computer lab. His research topic is A scalable heterogeneous quantum computer architecture based on superconducting circuits.
