ECE Professor Radu Marculescu and his team of collaborators earned the Best Paper Award at the IEEE/ACM International Symposium of Networks-on-Chip (NOCS2012) last month in Lyngby, Denmark. The paper, "An Optimal Control Approach to Power Management for Multi-VFI Platforms," was co-authored with post-doc Paul Bogdan and visiting students Rafa Tornero and Siddharth Jain, and addresses the fundamental problem of energy-efficient design of future multicore systems. More specifically, it introduces a completely new framework for identifying and exploiting the effects of workload variability on run-time power management of multicore platforms. Their research was sponsored by the NSF and SRC.
NOCS2012 is the premier forum for researchers to present their latest findings in the area of network-on-chip, and is sponsored primarily by the IEEE Circuits and Systems Society, Council for EDA, ACM Special Interest Group on Computer Architecture, ACM Special Interest Group on Embedded Systems, and ACM Special Interest Group on Design Automation. As part of their award, Marculescu and his co-authors received a framed graphical rendition of a Hans Christian Andersen poem and an NVIDIA board that can be used as a simulation platform for Marculescu's current research.
