2014-2016: New-generation Power-efficient Computer Systems Design
New-generation Power-efficient Computer Systems Design
The School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at Washington State University sponsor this REU program. The program consists of 9 weeks working with top research professors and graduate students at WSU. During this time, REU participants will assist in designing New-generation Power-efficient Computer Systems. The goal of this REU Site program is to offer a unique training opportunity for undergraduates to conduct research in the multidisciplinary area of New-generation Power-efficient Computer Systems Design. In the design of high-performance massive multicore chips, power and heat, along with performance, are now considered as dominant constraints.
The increasing power consumption is of growing concern due to several reasons, e.g., cost, performance, reliability, scalability, and environmental impact. More specifically, timely advances in exascale computing cannot be achieved without a holistic approach to reducing energy. The proposed REU program facilitates research and training in the complementary, multi-layered disciplines ranging from application layer to middle-ware to low level circuit design. Students will present their research results in a poster session at the end of the nine-week period. Travel support is available for students who submit their work to research-related conferences.
This WSU/EECS REU program is sponsored by the National Science Foundation.
