Data-Intensive Scalable Computing Laboratory (DISCL)

News::Doctoral Student Invited to Present at RISC-V Workshop at UCBerkeley

John Leidel, a doctoral student in the Department of Computer Science, recently presented at the second RISC-V computer and instruction set architecture workshop on June 29-30, 2015 in Berkeley, California. The workshop was hosted by the ASPIRE Laboratory at the University of California, Berkeley to showcase community activity and forward-thinking research associated with the RISC-V open source instruction set architecture. Complementary talks were given by academic and industry luminaries including Dr. David Patterson (UC Berkeley), Dr. Krste Asanovic (UC Berkeley) and Dr. Peter Hsu (Oracle Labs).

Leidel presented joint work done with Xi Wang, a graduate student in the Department of Computer Science and Dr. Yong Chen, Assistant Professor of Computer Science on GoblinCore64, a purpose built RISC-V architecture and instruction set extension explicitly designed to efficiently solve scalable problems in data intensive computing. GoblinCore64 is a project conducted at the Data Intensive Scalable Computing Laboratory in the Department of Computer Science that holistically includes unique research in computer architecture, programming models, compiler architecture and scalable software runtime architecture.
