Program Optimization for Multi-core Architectures (Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore)

The course will cover the following:

  • Processor architectures with focus on memory hierarchy, instruction level parallelism and multi-core architectures
  • Program analysis techniques for redundancy removal and optimization for high performance architectures
  • Concurrency and operating systems issues in using these architectures
  • Programming techniques for exploiting parallelism (use of message passing libraries)
  • Tools for code analysis and optimization (Intel compilers, profilers and application tuning tools

What do we expect to achieve by the end of the course?

  • Faculty who can teach this course and conduct research in this area
  • Students who can design, develop, understand, modify/enhance, and maintain complex applications which run on high performance architectures (in addition to doing research!)
  • A set of slides, notes, projects and laboratory exercises which can be used for teaching this course in future both at IITK and at other universities
