ABSTRACT

Facing the challenges of the end of Moore’s law – we need encourage direct interaction of scientists and engineers working on computer system architecture, system software (including compilers, runtime systems, and OS ) and high level programming programing models and methodology, as well as scientists who are mapping demanding applications on to future smart machines. The talk will focused on the software foundation program composabilityand scalability  in large-scale parallel and distributed systems.  We also briefly comment on the complier technology as a corner stone of such a foundation.


Biography

Guang R. Gao is a computer scientist and the2017 Recipient of the IEEE Computer Society B. Ramakrishna Rau Award.

Gao has received his undergraduate education in Tsinghua University in Beijing. He received his Master and Ph.D degree in 1982 and 1986 respectively both in Computer Science at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) -- the first from mainland China. Gao has devoted his research and academic careers in dataflow model of computation To this end, Gao has led a series of parallel architecture and system projects where various aspects of dataflow models  explored – ranging from innovations in programming paradigms, architecture features, and system software technology,  including novel program optimization and runtime system techniques. 

Gao is an ACM Fellow and IEEE Fellow.  He has been awarded an Endowed Named Professorship of Electrical and Computer Engineering at University of Delaware.  He received the Outstanding Achievement Award of Oversee Scholars - a prestigious award given by the CCF (Chinese Computer Federation). Gao is a founder and chairman of the IEEE/CS Dataflow STC – the Special Interested Community of Parallel Model and System: Dataflow and Beyond (http://dfstc.capsl.udel.edu/).
