    School Seminar - The Swan Task Dataflow Scheduler: Design and Applications - 26th January

    26th January 2016, 14:00, Kilburn Lecture Theatre 1.3

    Title: The Swan Task Dataflow Scheduler: Design and Applications

    Speaker: Dr Hans Vandierendonck, Queen's University Belfast

    Host: Antoniu Pop, University of Manchester




    Task dataflow is increasingly investigated as a programming model and execution model for high-performance and energy-efficient computing systems. The model requires programmers to annotate tasks with the data read and written by the task and uses this information to optimise runtime scheduling. This talk presents the rationale behind the design of Swan, analyses its performance and discusses current projects in high-performance computing and data analytics using Swan.




    Hans Vandierendonck is assistant professor at Queen's University Belfast where he leads research on programming models and runtime systems for high-performance and data-intensive computing. He also has an interest in computer architecture and memory technologies. Previously, he held a Marie Curie Fellowship. He is a Senior Member of the IEEE and of the ACM.
