  • Holistic slowdown driven scheduling and resource management for malleable jobs 

    D'Amico, Marco; Jokanovic, Ana; Corbalán González, Julita (Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), 2019)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    In job scheduling, the concept of malleability has been explored since many years ago. Research shows that malleability improves system performance, but its utilization in HPC never became widespread. The causes are the ...
  • The cooperative parallel: A discussion about run-time schedulers for nested parallelism 

    Royuela, Sara; Serrano, Maria A.; García Gasulla, Marta; Mateo Bellido, Sergi; Labarta Mancho, Jesús José; Quiñones Moreno, Eduardo (Springer, 2019)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Nested parallelism is a well-known parallelization strategy to exploit irregular parallelism in HPC applications. This strategy also fits in critical real-time embedded systems, composed of a set of concurrent functionalities. ...
  • Adding security and privacy to genomic information representation 

    Delgado Mercè, Jaime; Llorente Viejo, Silvia; Naro, Daniel (IOS Press, 2019)
    Conference lecture
    Open Access
    Provision of security and privacy to genomic data is a key issue in current genomic information representation. Existing formats do not give a solution to these issues (or they provide a partial one), so new solutions are ...
  • Assembling a high-productivity DSL for computational fluid dynamics 

    Macià, Sandra; Martínez-Ferrer, Pedro J.; Mateo, Sergi; Beltran Querol, Vicenç; Ayguadé Parra, Eduard (Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), 2019)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    As we move towards exascale computing, an abstraction for effective parallel computation is increasingly needed to overcome the maintainability and portability of scientific applications while ensuring the efficient and ...
  • Wav2Pix: speech-conditioned face generation using generative adversarial networks 

    Cardoso Duarte, Amanda; Roldan, Francisco; Tubau, Miquel; Escur, Janna; Pascual de la Puente, Santiago; Salvador Aguilera, Amaia; Mohedano, Eva; McGuinness, Kevin; Torres Viñals, Jordi; Giró Nieto, Xavier (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2019)

    Speech is a rich biometric signal that contains information about the identity, gender and emotional state of the speaker. In this work, we explore its potential to generate face images of a speaker by conditioning a ...
  • Collaborative informed gateway selection in large-scale and heterogeneous 

    Batbayar, Khulan; Dimogerontakis, Emmanouil; Meseguer Pallarès, Roc; Navarro Moldes, Leandro; Sadre, Ramin (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2019)
    Conference report

    In wireless community access networks, clients tend to reach the Internet through multiple gateway nodes instead of a single default gateway. The mapping of gateways to clients should take into account the perception of ...
  • IPchain: securing IP prefix allocation and delegation with blockchain 

    Paillissé Vilanova, Jordi; Ferriol Galmés, Miquel; Garcia Ribera, Eric; Lafif Martínez, Hamid; Piris Yamuza, Carlos; López Brescó, Albert; Cabellos Aparicio, Alberto
    Conference report

    We present IPchain, a blockchain to store the allocations and delegations of IP addresses, with the aim of easing the deployment of secure interdomain routing systems. Interdomain routing security is of vital importance ...
  • Data conversion in area-constrained applications: the wireless network-on-chip case 

    Abadal Cavallé, Sergi; Alarcón Cot, Eduardo José
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Network-on-Chip (NoC) is currently the paradigm of choice to interconnect the different components of System-on-Chips (SoCs) or Chip Multiprocessors (CMPs). As the levels of integration continue to grow, however, current ...
  • Application Acceleration on FPGAs with OmpSs@FPGA 

    Bosch, Jaume; Tan, Xubin; Filgueras Izquierdo, Antonio; Vidal, Miquel; Mateu, Marc; Jiménez-González, Daniel; Álvarez, Carlos; Martorell Bofill, Xavier; Ayguadé Parra, Eduard; Labarta Mancho, Jesús José (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2019)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    OmpSs@FPGA is the flavor of OmpSs that allows offloading application functionality to FPGAs. Similarly to OpenMP, it is based on compiler directives. While the OpenMP specification also includes support for heterogeneous ...
  • Metodología para el diseño de sistemas basados en microprocesadores 

    Medina Llinàs, Manuel (Marcombo, 1981)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    En esta comunicación se presenta el método de diseño de sistemas basados en microprocesadores propuesto en los cursos impartidos en la Escuela de Telecomunicación de Barcelona. Tras una introducción en la que se concretan ...
  • A preliminary model for optimal load distribution in heterogeneous smart environments
