02.10.2015: Doctoral Seminar on Predictability at the Sarntal Academy 2015
Prof. Michael Gerndt and Prof. Michael Glaß organized a doctoral seminar for the working group on predictability of the CRC/Transregio 89 titled “Benchmarking for Multi-Criteria-Predictable Multi-Core Computing” at the Sarntal Academy in South Tyrol, Italy. The organizers, doctoral researchers, as well as the guest lecturers Prof. Jürgen Teich, Prof. Wolfgang Schröder-Preikschat, Prof. Michael Bader, PD Dr. Daniel Lohmann, and Dr. Stefan Wildermann presented state-of-the-art and ongoing research to enhance and deepen the predictability-awareness across all projects.
Topics such as (i) the modeling of requirements and assumptions wrt. quality numbers such as timing, reliability, security, or power, (ii) a formal underpinning for the general design flow, (iii) challenges for predictability in the context of invasive applications, system software and architectures, as well as (iv) concepts for benchmarks and demonstrators have been discussed and results were documented in concrete code examples and white papers.
Following the tradition of the Sarntal Academy, hiking as well as other group activities enabled to compensate for the hard but successful work.
