Congratulations to Rutgers CS students Krishnan Gosakan, Guido Tagliavini Ponce, Alex Conway (alumnus), and professors Sudarsun Kannan and Martin Farach-Colton, whose paper on "Mosaic Pages: Big TLB Reach with Small Pages" won the Distinguished Paper Award at the 28th International Conference on Architectural Support for Programming Languages and Operating Systems (ASPLOS' 23, Vancouver, Canada). 


ASPLOS is the premier forum for systems research, intersecting computer architecture, hardware and emerging technologies, programming languages and compilers, operating systems, and networking. 


With Mosaic Pages, the authors design techniques to compress and store multiple translations within a single Translation Lookaside Buffer (TLB) entry. Mosaic's key idea is to limit the possible mappings of virtual addresses in physical memory, ensuring that only a small number of bits are required to indicate the specific mapping chosen for a given virtual address.
