Software and Systems Research Seminar Series
The SaS Seminars are a permanent series of open seminars of the Division of Software and Systems (SaS) at the Department of Computer and Information Science (IDA), Linköping University. The objective of the seminars is to present outstanding research and ideas/problems relevant for SaS present and future activities. In particular, seminars cover the SaS research areas software engineering, programming environments, system software, embedded SW/HW systems, computer systems engineering, realtime systems, parallel and distributed computing, and theoretical computer science. - Two kinds of seminars are planned:
talks by invited speakers not affiliated with SaS,
internal seminars presenting lab research to whole SaS.
The speakers are expected to give a broad perspective of the presented research, adressing the audience with a general computer science background but possibly with no specific knowledge in the domain of the presented research. The normal length of a presentation is 60 minutes, including discussion.
The SaS seminars are coordinated by Christoph Kessler.
Recent / Upcoming SaS Seminars (2013)
A Decade of Modelling Parallel Computing Systems
Dr. Sabri Pllana, Linnaeus University Växjö
Thursday 2 may 2013, 13:15, room Alan Turing
Abstract: In mature engineering disciplines such as civil engineering, before an artefact (for instance a bridge) is built, the corresponding model is developed. We argue that a practice model first then build the code would benefit also software engineers. Since programming parallel systems is considered significantly more omplex than programming sequential systems, the use of models in the context of parallel computing systems is of particular importance. In this talk we will highlight some of our models of parallel computing systems that we have developed in the last ten years. We will first address various modelling aspects in the context of clusters of SMPs, continue thereafter with the Grid, and conclude this talk with heterogeneous computing systems.
Sabri Pllana is an associate professor
at the department of computer science at
Linnaeus University in Växjö since April 2013.
Before that he worked as a senior research scientist at the
Research Group Scientific Computing at the University of Vienna, Austria.
His current research interests include intelligent programming environments
and performance-oriented software engineering for parallel and
distributed systems. He contributed to several EU-funded projects
and was coordinator of the recently completed FP7 project
Performance Portability and Programmability for
Heterogeneous Many-core Architectures (PEPPHER).
He has published over 50 peer-reviewed publications, and has contributed as member or chair to more than 60 program committees.
Sabri Pllana holds a PhD degree (with distinction) in computer science from the Vienna University of Technology. He is member of the IEEE, member of the HiPEAC network of excellence, member of the Networked European Software and Services Initiative (NESSI), member of the MIR Labs network of excellence, and member of the Euro-Par Advisory Board.
3G Long Term Evolution (LTE) - A 4G Technology
Dr. Eva Englund, Ericsson AB
Friday 17 May 2013, 10:15, room Alan Turing
Abstract: The presentation provides an overview of Long Term Evolution (LTE) standard, also referred to as the 4G mobile communications technology. The presentation highlights the key techology components introduced in LTE as well as the 3GPP evolution path leading to LTE - Advanced and beyond. The presentation will also share some experience from the early field introduction of LTE.
Speaker's profile: Eva disputerade på ISY/Datatransmission och forskade därefter en period på FOI med militära paketradionät. Därefter flyttade Eva till Ericsson Research i Linköping där hon varit verksam i många år som innovatör och projektledare. Hon var med från början med att ta fram grunderna för 4G/LTE och jobbade sedan som projektledare för Ericsson Research största LTE projekt. Eva har skapat många patent och fått pris som årets innovatör i Ericsson 2008. Nu är Eva Teknisk Koordinator på LTE produktutveckling och är även en uppskattad föreläsare. Eva är också en tufft skolad balettdansör från Balettakademin.
