Seminar on Provably good scheduling for parallel programs

This talk will present recent research on scheduling algorithms that provide provable guarantees on the performance of parallel programs that they schedule.

SCHED_DEADLINE in mainline

A few weeks ago, the scheduler went into the mainline Linux kernel. Here is one announcement. Many thanks first of all to Peter Zjilstra who has always supported this idea; and to Thomas Gleixner for his initial help and support all along the way. Also, many thanks to all the people that have contributed to its development: Michael Trimarchi, Claudio Scordino, Fabio Checconi, Luca Abeni, Dario Faggioli and Juri Lelli.

Advanced Course on Coordination of Autonomous Mobile Nodes

This short course addresses some of the issues that need to be solved to build mobile robot systems, such as synchronization, information sharing, membership, location-awareness and consensus. These issues will be illustrated with a few case studies, including a robotic soccer team from RoboCup.

Assegnato al Prof. Buttazzo l’ IEEE Outstanding Technical Contributions and Leadership Award del 2013

Importante riconoscimento al Prof. Giorgio Buttazzo, coordinatore dell’Unità di Ricerca Embedded System dell’Istituto TeCIP della Scuola, che si è visto assegnare da parte del Technical Committee on Real-Time Systems, il prestigioso premio IEEE Technical Committee on Real-Time Systems per l'eccellenza dei risultati e della leadership nella ricerca sui sistemi real-time.

Advanced Course on Multiprocessor Real-Time Locking by Björn B. Brandenburg

One of the fundamental problems in real-time systems is how to guarantee predictable, mutually exclusive access to shared resources such that the worst-case blocking incurred by any task remains bounded. On uniprocessors, it has long been known how to solve this problem optimally using Baker's classic Stack Resource Policy (SRP) and Sha et al.'s Priority Ceiling Protocol (PCP). On multiprocessors, however, the problem is considerably more challenging and not yet as well understood.

Juri Lelli invited at LKS 2013

Juri Lelli, PhD student at Scuola Superiore Sant'Anna and maintainer of the SCHED_DEADLINE patchset for the Linux kernel, has been invited to the annual Linux Kernel Summit. The SCHED_DEADLINE patchset is part of a set of scheduling algorithms and kernel mechanisms available for Linux to enforce temporal constraints in multi-core systems. SCHED_DEADLINE is being developed and maintained as part of WorkPackage 3, System Software, used inside the JUNIPER project to enforce predictability.

New paper on Resource Reservation at the 15th RTLWS

At the 15th Real-Time Linux Workshop held in Lugano-Manno on October 28-31, Andrea Parri and Juri Lelli of the ReTiS Lab of the Scuola Superiore Sant'Anna presented a paper describing the Multiprocessor Bandwidth Inheritance. M-BWI is a OS protocol used to improve isolation among resource reservations while dealing with mutex semaphores on shared resources. The work has been carried out in the context of the WorkPackage 3 of the JUNIPER project, concerning System Software.

Youcheng Sun, primo laureato del GP in Information Science and Technologies conferma l‘eccellenza del percorso di studio ideato dal Sant‘Anna

Si chiama Youcheng Sun, ed è il primo studente ad aver completato il Graduate Program in Information Science and Technologies (GPIST), un percorso formativo di eccellenza promosso dall’Istituto di Tecnologie della Comunicazione, dell’Informazione e della Percezione (TeCIP) della Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna in collaborazione con l’Università di Trento.

ERCTS 2012, Giorgio Buttazzo General Chair della Conferenza sul real-time

Si svolge a Pisa presso la sede della Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna dal 10 al 13 luglio 2012 la 24esima Euromicro Conference on Real-Time Systems -ECRTS 2012. La ECRTS è la più importante conferenza europea nel campo dei sistemi real-time ed attrae ogni anno esperti da tutto il mondo provenienti sia da istituzioni accademiche che da centri di ricerca industriali.

Marco Ghibaudi, allievo PhD dell‘Istituto TeCIP, selezionato per una Doctoral Studentship presso il CERN

Importante riconoscimento quello ottenuto da Marco Ghibaudi, allievo PhD dell’Istituto di Tecnologie della Comunicazione, Informazione e Percezione TeCIP della Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna, selezionato per una Doctoral Studentship presso il CERN, l’Organizzazione Europea per la Ricerca Nucleare, con sede a Ginevra grazie alla quale potrà collaborare all’aggiornamento di una delle componenti principali del sistema di acquisizione dati di ATLAS, il trigger di primo livello.
