Ma Receives Award for Parallel Computing Study

Dr. Xiaosong Ma, associate professor of computer science at NC State University, has been awarded $45,369 by Oak Ridge National Laboratories/US Dept. of Energy to support her research proposal entitled “Understanding I/O Patterns for Out-of-Core Computing and Data-Intensive Applications.”

The award will run from April 4, 2013 to December 31, 2013. 
Abstract –In this project, we will collaborate with ORNL researchers on two research tasks: (1) Access pattern analysis for intelligent out-of-core parallel computing with deep memory hierarchy. The goal of the project is to place variables across multiple levels of memory devices (including DRAM and NVM layers) and achieve optimized overall out-of-core execution performance. (2) Access pattern analysis for automatic extraction of parallel application I/O signatures. The goal of the project is to detect heavy I/O applications without application-level or file-system level instrumentation or profiling.
