Title: Energy Efficient Task and Data Scheduling for Large-Scale Computing Systems

With the advancement in integration technologies and nanotechnology, hundreds of processing cores can be integrated onto a single chip referred to as Multi-Processor System-on-Chip (MPSoC). In contrast to traditional single core processors, MPSoCs can provide increased computational capabilities at a low cost with much improved energy efficiency. The current trend clearly indicates the dominance of multicore processor systems in the forthcoming personal and household devices, such as mobile phones, tablets, and laptops. Moreover, researchers anticipate that the majority of future large-scale high performance computing systems will be based on MPSoC architecture. Similarly, multicore architectures are also being adopted for safety critical systems, such as avionics, automotive controls, and health monitoring systems. Multiple processing cores executing a set of communicating tasks often need to share large amount of data with each other. In this regard, Network-on-Chip (NoC) has emerged as a viable solution to provide efficient and scalable communication architecture for next generation MPSoCs. However, the performance and energy efficiency of MPSoCs largely depend upon the optimal task scheduling, data allocation, and core mapping. Minimizing energy consumption and network load is a major challenge for NoC based multicore processor systems. Efficient task and core mapping can greatly reduce energy consumption and communication overhead among the interacting tasks. Therefore, we have developed algorithms to jointly address the problem of optimizing energy efficiency and communication overhead for NoC based multicore processor systems.
