We are thrilled to announce that two NHR@FAU students have just been awarded the first and second prize in the ISC 2021 Digital PhD Forum:

  • 1st place for the contribution “Noise-driven Cluster-level Performance Modelling and Engineering” by Ayesha Afzal
  • 2nd place for the contribution “The Best Thread Block Size and other parameters you have to tune for optimal performance on GPUs” by Dominik Ernst

Ayesha presented her work on the behavior of idle waves, computational waves, and desynchronization  effects in massively parallel programs on multicore systems. Dominik presented his research on performance modeling and optimal tuning parameter selection for GPUs based solely on high-level code features.
