    RECIPE (REliable power and time-ConstraInts-aware Predictive management of heterogeneous Exascale systems) is a recently started project funded within the H2020 FETHPC programme, which is expressly targeted at exploring ...
  • Energy-aware dynamic pricing model for cloud environments 

    Liu, Peini; Bravo, Gusseppe; Guitart Fernández, Jordi (Springer, 2019)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Energy consumption is a critical operational cost for Cloud providers. However, as commercial providers typically use fixed pricing schemes that are oblivious about the energy costs of running virtual machines, clients are ...
  • Multi-vehicle route planning for efficient urban freight transport 

    Mrazovic, Petar; Eser, Elif; Ferhatosmanoglu, Hakan; Larriba Pey, Josep; Matskin, Mihhail (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2018)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    The urban parking spaces for loading/unloading are typically over-occupied, which shifts delivery operations to traffic lanes and pavements, increases traffic, generates noise, and causes pollution. We present a data ...

    Akbari-Moghanjoughi, Ayyoub; Santos Boada, Germán; Solé Pareta, Josep; Almeida Amazonas, José Roberto de (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2019)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    The question of how to specify, provide and measure service quality for network end-users has been of utmost interest for service and network infrastructure providers and their clients as well. The Service Level Agreement ...
  • Improving performance of QUIC in WiFi 

    Manzoor, Jawad; Cerdà Alabern, Llorenç; Sadre, Ramin; Drago, Idilio (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2019)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    QUIC is a new transport protocol under standardization since 2016. Initially developed by Google as an experiment, the protocol is already deployed in large-scale, thanks to its support in Chromium and Google's servers. ...
  • On the benefits of tasking with OpenMP 

    Rico, Alejandro; Sánchez Barrera, Isaac; Joao, Jose A.; Randall, Joshua; Casas, Marc; Moreto Planas, Miquel (Springer, 2019)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Tasking promises a model to program parallel applications that provides intuitive semantics. In the case of tasks with dependences, it also promises better load balancing by removing global synchronizations (barriers), and ...
  • Identifying the sources of flight inefficiency from historical aircraft trajectories. A set of distance- and fuel-based performance indicators for post-operational analysis. 

    Prats Menéndez, Xavier; Dalmau Codina, Ramon; Barrado Muxí, Cristina (2019)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    In this paper a set of new performance indicators (PIs) aiming to capture the environmental impact of aircraft operations is proposed. Its contribution is threefold: optimal trajectories are computed to compare them with ...
