  • An asymmetric distributed shared memory model for heterogeneous parallel systems 

    Gelado Fernandez, Isaac; Cabezas, Javier; Navarro Mas, Nacho; Stone, John E.; Patel, Sanjay; Hwu, Wen-mei W. (2010)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Heterogeneous computing combines general purpose CPUs with accelerators to efficiently execute both sequential control-intensive and data-parallel phases of applications. Existing programming models for heterogeneous ...
  • Comparison based sorting for systems with multiple GPUs 

    Tanasic, Ivan; Vilanova, Lluís; Jorda, Marc; Cabezas, Javier; Gelado Fernandez, Isaac; Navarro Mas, Nacho; Hwu, Wen-mei W. (Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), 2013)
    Conference report

    As a basic building block of many applications, sorting algorithms that efficiently run on modern machines are key for the performance of these applications. With the recent shift to using GPUs for general purpose compuing, ...
  • Enabling preemptive multiprogramming on GPUs 

    Tanasic, Ivan; Gelado Fernandez, Isaac; Cabezas, Javier; Ramírez Bellido, Alejandro; Navarro Mas, Nacho; Valero Cortés, Mateo (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2014)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    GPUs are being increasingly adopted as compute accelerators in many domains, spanning environments from mobile systems to cloud computing. These systems are usually running multiple applications, from one or several users. ...
  • Experiences with mobile processors for energy efficient HPC 

    Rajovic, Nikola; Rico Carro, Alejandro; Vipond, James; Gelado Fernandez, Isaac; Puzovic, Nikola; Ramírez Bellido, Alejandro (2013)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    The performance of High Performance Computing (HPC) systems is already limited by their power consumption. The majority of top HPC systems today are built from commodity server components that were designed for maximizing ...
  • High-performance reverse time migration on GPU 

    Cabezas, Javier; Ayala Polo, Mauricio; Gelado Fernandez, Isaac; Morancho Llena, Enrique; Navarro Mas, Nacho; Cela Espín, José M. (2009-11)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Partial Differential Equations (PDE) are the heart of most simulations in many scientific fields, from Fluid Mechanics to Astrophysics. One the most popular mathematical schemes to solve a PDE is Finite Difference (FD). In ...
  • On-Chip memories, the OS perspective 

    Villavieja Prados, Carlos; Gelado Fernandez, Isaac; Ramírez Bellido, Alejandro; Navarro Mas, Nacho (2008-06-04)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    This paper is a work in progress study of the operating system services required to manage on-chip memories. We are evaluating different CMP on-chip memories configurations. Chip-MultiProcessors (CMP) architectures ...
  • Parallelizing general histogram application for CUDA architectures 

    Milic, Ugljesa; Gelado Fernandez, Isaac; Puzovic, Nikola; Ramírez Bellido, Alejandro; Tomasevic, Milo (IEEE Computational Intelligence Society, 2013)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Histogramming is a tool commonly used in data analysis. Although its serial version is simple to implement, providing an efficient and scalable way to parallelize it can be challenging. This especially holds in case of ...
  • Predictive runtime code scheduling for heterogeneous architectures 

    Jimenez, Victor; Vilanova, Lluis; Gelado Fernandez, Isaac; Gil, Marisa; Fursin, Gregori; Navarro Mas, Nacho (2009)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Heterogeneous architectures are currently widespread. With the advent of easy-to-program general purpose GPUs, virtually every re- cent desktop computer is a heterogeneous system. Combining the CPU and the GPU brings ...
  • Supercomputing with commodity CPUs: are mobile SoCs ready for HPC?
