Multi-scale Thermal Management of Computing Systems

Integrate thermal-aware platform design, thermal control with workload management and shaping in a distributed, multi-scale strategy, to achieve the highest performance compatible with temperature constraints.

The development of a synergistic performance, power and thermal management strategy requires major breakthrough in several areas, namely architectures, run-time systems, resource management middleware, code optimization tools and programming models.

Bring together techniques from computer architecture and circuits, control theory, combinatorial and continuous optimization, statistical model-building and artificial intelligence.  Results will be demonstrated on of physical and virtual prototypes, proving practical applicability and relevance for industrial applications.
