Keynotes


The MMB&DFT 2012 is proud to feature two keynotes by Lothar Thiele from ETH Zürich and Anja Feldmann from TU Berlin/T-Labs. Both keynotes speeches will be held in the "Rotunde" in building 57 at the University of Kaiserslautern.



Keynote 1
"Modeling and Evaluation of Thermal System Properties"

Speaker

Lothar Thiele

Abstract
Power density has b een cont inuously increasing in mo dern pro cessors, lead-ng to high on-chip temp eratures. A system could fail if the op erating temperature exceeds a certain threshold, leading to low reliability and even chip burnout. There have b een many results in recent years ab out t her mal management, including (1) thermal-constrained scheduling to maximize p erformance or determine the schedulability of real-time systems u nder given temp erature constraints, (2) peak temp eratu re reduction to meet p erformance constraints, and (3) thermal control by applying control theory for s ystem adaption. The presentation will cover challenges, problems and approach es to real-time scheduling under temp erature constraints for single- as well as multi-processors.

Bio

Lothar Thiele received his Diplom-Ingenieur and Dr.-Ing. degrees in Electrical Engineering from the Technical University of Munich in 1981 and 1985 respectively. After completing his Habilitation thesis from the Institute of Network Theory and Circuit Design of the Technical University Munich, he joined the Information Systems Laboratory at Stanford University in 1987. In 1988, he took up the chair of microelectronics at the Faculty of Engineering, University of Saarland, Saarbrucken, Germany. He joined ETH Zurich, Switzerland, as a full Professor of Computer Engineering, in 1994. He is leading the Computer Engineering and Networks Laboratory of ETH Zurich.
His research interests include models, methods and software tools for the design of embedded systems, embedded software and bioinspired optimization techniques.
Lothar Thiele is associate editor of IEEE Transaction on Industrial Informatics, IEEE Transactions on Evolutionary Computation, Journal of Real-Time Systems, Journal of Signal Processing Systems, Journal of Systems Architecture, and INTEGRATION, the VLSI Journal.
In 1986 he received the "Dissertation Award" of the Technical University of Munich, in 1987, the "Outstanding Young Author Award" of the IEEE Circuits and Systems Society, in 1988, the Browder J. Thompson Memorial Award of the IEEE, and in 2000-2001, the "IBM Faculty Partnership Award". In 2004, he joined the German Academy of Sciences Leopoldina. In 2005, he was the recipient of the Honorary Blaise Pascal Chair of University Leiden, The Netherlands. Since 2009 he is a member of the Foundation Board of Hasler Foundation, Switzerland. Since 2010, he is a member of the Academia Europaea.

Keynote 2
"Internet Architecture Trends"

Speaker

Anja Feldmann

Abstract

The ever growing demand for information of Internet users is putting a significant burden on the current Internet infrastructure who's architectu re has been more or less unchanged over the last 30 years. Indeed, rather than adjusting the architecture small fIxes , e.g., MPLS, have b een deployed within the core network. Today, new technical abilities enable us to rethink the Internet architecture. In this talk we rst highlight how Internet usage has changed in the area of user
generated context. Then we explore two technology trends: Cloud networks and op en hardware/software interfaces. Virtualization, a main motor for innovation, decouples services from the underlying infrastructure and allows for resource sharing while ensuring performance guarantees. Server v ir tualization is widely used, e.g., in th e clouds. However, cloud virtualization alone is meaningless w ithout taking into account the network needed to access the cloud resources and data: cloud networks. Current inf rastructures are limited to use the to ols provided by the hardware vendors as there are hardly any op en software stacks available for network devices in the core. This hurts innovation. However, novel programing interfaces for network devices, e.g., Op enFlow, provide op en hardware/software interfaces and may enable us to build a network O S with novel features. We outline initial work in this area.

Short Bio
Anja Feldmann is a Professor at the Deutsche Telekom Laboratories (an An-Institut of the Technische Universität Berlin). Previously she was a professor in the computer science department at the Technische Universität München. Before that she was a professor in the computer science department at University of Saarbrücken in Germany. Before that, she was a member of the IP Network Measurement and Performance Department at AT&T Labs Research.
Her current research interest is network performance debugging. Starting from data traffic measurements over traffic characterization this leads to judging the performance implications of what we have learned. In 2011, she was awarded with the Leibniz prize of the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft. In 2009, she became member of the German National Acadamy of Sciences Leopoldina.
