Maurizio Drocco and Claudia Misale have been selected for a quite competitive internship at IBM T.J. Watson laboratory in New York (6 months May-Oct 2015). Maurizio is going to work on parallel algorithms fro graph analytics within Fabrizio Petrini group. Claudia is going to work on low-latency interconnects within Carlos H.A. Costas group.
Two MSc students from parallel computing group “alpha” have been awarded with best thesis of the year price
Maurizio Drocco from MSc in Computer Science and Alessandro Ludovico Veltri from the MSc in Networking from the Interfaculty School of Strategic Studies, respectively, have been awarded with “University of Torino best thesis of the year 2012/13 price”. Only one student per master class is awarded every year.
Maurizio Drocco graduated with the thesis on “Parallel stochastic simulators in systems biology: the evolution of the species”, Alessandro Ludovico Veltri graduated with the thesis on “Analysis, setup and assessment of cloud platforms: addressing the defense cloud computing”.
Both of them graduated with “summa cum laude and honour”, for the exceptional quality of their curricula and their thesis .
Best students at UNITO 2012/13 (in Italian)
The focus of the RePhrase project is on producing new software engineering tools, techniques and methodologies for developing data-intensive applications in C++, targeting heterogeneous multicore/manycore systems that combine CPUs and GPUs into a coherent parallel platform. Data-intensive applications are one of the most important and commonly encountered classes of industrial application. Such applications are often potentially highly parallel and are a clear match to emerging heterogeneous parallel architectures. However, exploiting this potential effectively can be difficult: it is even harder to obtain good performance for parallel data-intensive applications than for compute- intensive applications, since many additional issues related to data management need to be taken into account. These including structuring the data to make it efficient to access and to process, placement/migration/replication of the data to allow fast parallel access, ensuring data consistency etc. The RePhrase project tackles these issues directly.
