New Systems Challenges in the Multi-core World


Dr. Raj YavatkarWith continued transistor scaling and ability put billion+ transistors on the die, multi-core computing has gone mainstream. That includes an increasingly SoC (System on a Chip) architecture that integrates many different components. By putting 10s of multi-threaded processor cores on a die, the computing industry will soon deliver TeraScale system performance on every desktop. However, such a potential also brings with it an interesting set of challenges in the areas of computer system architecture, system security, resilient systems, and support for emerging applications. The talk will describe these research challenges as well as potential directions for addressing them.


Dr. Raj Yavatkar is an Intel Fellow and Director of the Platform Validation Architecture in the Digital Enterprise Group. He leads the efforts to introduce design/validation technology innovations to reduce the silicon and platform validation complexity. Dr. Yavatkar led the formation of the Systems Technology Lab involved in advanced R&D in the areas of system architecture and platform technologies. From 1999 through 2004, he was the Chief Software Architect for Intel's IXP family of network processors.

Dr. Yavatkar received his Ph.D. in Computer Science from Purdue University in 1989 and holds twelve patents, with more than 25 pending. He is recognized as a leading expert in the networking industry, and was the General Chair of ACM Sigcomm 2004. Dr. Yavatkar has published more than 30 papers in academic journals and conferences and has co-authored the book, Inside the Internet's Resource Reservation Protocol (RSVP) published by John Wiley. He serves on the editorial board of the IEEE Network magazine and previously served as an editor of Computer Communications, ACM/Springer-Verlag Journal on Multimedia Systems and Kluwer’s Multimedia Tools and Applications. He has served as Vice-Chairman of the Network Processing Forum, which developed standards for the network processing industry.
