Congratulations to Prof. Abhishek Bhattacharjee and
Prof. Ricardo Bianchini, who have received two new NSF grants.
The first is titled: "SHF: Taming the Combinatorial Explosion of
Power Management for Future Manycore Systems". In this project,
they will create techniques for efficiently selecting good power
state configurations in future manycore systems. The second grant
is titled "XPS: Enhancing the Programmability of Heterogeneous
Manycore Systems". In this project, they will create software
and hardware support for unified address spaces in systems
comprising many cores and accelerators (e.g., GPUs).
The total funding for these NSF grants is $1.2M.
In addition to these two grants, Prof. Bhattacharjee was the
recipient of two other prestigious grants awarded earlier this
year (announced in previous posts). He received an NSF CAREER
grant, as well as a highly competitive gift from the VMWare
Academic Research Program (which funded only 3 proposals, giving
just a 6% funding rate). These grants together totalled $638K
in funding for Prof. Bhattacharjee.
