ParaDIME presents research on hardware support for efficient message passing at ICPP-2015

Wed, 2015-09-02

This month, a ParaDIME paper was presented at the 44th International Conference on Parallel Processing (ICPP), held from 1-4 of September 2015, in Beijing, China. 

The paper entitled DiMP: Architectural Support for Direct Message Passing on Shared Memory Multi-cores” was authored by Ruben Titos-Gil, Oscar Palomar, Osman Unsal and Adrian Cristal, from Barcelona Supercomputing Center. It proposes and evaluates a set of ISA extensions, and their associated hardware support, aimed at reducing some of the overheads that message passing workloads suffer when executed on a commodity shared-memory multicore.
