MiKO---Mikado Koncurrent Objects

Authors: Francisco Martins, Liliana Salvador, Vasco T. Vasconcelos, and Luís Lopes

Published in: Dagstuhl Seminar Proceedings, Volume 5081, Foundations of Global Computing (2006)


Abstract
The motivation for the Mikado migration model is to provide programming constructs for controlling code mobility that are as independent as possible from the particular programming language used to program the code. The main idea is to regard a domain (or site, or locality), where mobile code may enter or exit, as a membrane enclosing running processes, and offering services that have to be called for entering or exiting the domain. MiKO---Mikado Koncurrent Objects is a particular instance of this model, where the membrane is explicitly split in two parts: the methods defining the interface, and a process part describing the data for, and the behavior of, the interface. The talk presents the syntax, operational semantics, and type system of MiKO, together with an example. It concludes by briefly mentioning the implementation of a language based on the calculus.

Compiler-Driven Power Optimizations in the Register File of Processor-Based Systems

Authors: José Luis Ayala and Marisa Lópes-Vallejo

Published in: Dagstuhl Seminar Proceedings, Volume 5141, Power-aware Computing Systems (2005)


Abstract
The complexity of the register file is currently one of the main factors on determining the cycle time of high performance wide-issue microprocessors due to its access time and size. Both parameters are directly related to the number of read and write ports of the register file and can be managed from a code compilation-level. Therefore, it is a priority goal to reduce this complexity in order to allow the efficient implementation of complex superscalar machines. This work presents a modified register assignment and a banked architecture which efficiently reduce the number of required ports. Also, the effect of the loop unrollling optimization performed by the compiler is analyzed and several power-efficient modifications to this mechanism are proposed. Both register assignment and loop unrolling mechanisms are modified to improve the energy savings while avoiding a hard performance impact.
