Adaptive solutions for the emerging reliability and multicore resource management challenges

Stylianos Mamagkakis

PhD Team Coordinator, Digital Components - Smart Systems and Energy Technology, IMEC vzw., Belgium.


The revolutionary impact of the semiconductor industry lies in producing chips with ever increasing integration capability, computational capacity, and energy efficiency at decreasing cost per function. This integration has enabled the first wave of multicore hardware platforms, which have found their way in the embedded systems we use in our everyday life, as in advanced entertainment and communication systems. As technology scaling approaches nanoscale dimensions, we can expect this integration to move even further, thus increasing dramatically the number of cores on a chip and enabling the mapping of a higher number of software applications. The main challenges that arise are related with run-time resource management of shared multicore platform resources and variability and reliability issues which are linked with nanoscale technology. In this talk, the reliability and resource management challenges of these emerging multicore platforms will be discussed and the proposed adaptive solutions will be evaluated.


Short bio

Stylianos Mamagkakis received his Master and Ph.D. degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the Democritus Uni. Thrace (Greece) in 2004 and 2007, respectively. Since 2006, he coordinates a team of PhD students within the SSET division at IMEC, Leuven, Belgium. His research activities mainly belong to the field of system-level exploration and resource management with emphasis on MPSoCs, system integration and reliability. He has published more than 35 papers in International Journals and Conferences. He was investigator in 10 research projects in the embedded systems domain funded from the EC as well as national governments and industry. He has been project leader of the OptiMMA IWT project and currently is the project leader of MNEMEE FP7 project, representative of IMEC in the Spirit consortium, Artist and HiPEAC Networks of Excellence.
