FDP on PRINCIPLES AND PRACTICES OF PARALLEL COMPUTER ARCHITECTURE
FACULTY DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMME
“PRINCIPLES AND PRACTICES OF PARALLEL COMPUTER ARCHITECTURE”
(7th July to 9th July 2016)
The primary objective of the programme was to provide an understanding of the fundamentals of the architecture and design of unicore as well as multicore processors.. The advancements in computer architectures in detail starting from pipeline architecture , super scalar processors to the latest multicore andGPU processors were discussed. The latest NoC architecture for multicore design was introduced and the research potential in the emerging NoC architecture and compiler and hardware scheduling algorithms were also discussed. A couple open source computer architecture simulators like EduMIPS64 (MIPS64 pipeline simulator) for pipeline architecture and Booksim2 for NoC architecture were introduced and a hands on session was given for both in the laboratory.
Participation in the FDP
The course was intended to faculty members of Computer Science, IT and ECE branches of AICTE approved Engineering Colleges.
Eventhough the number of participants were limited to 30, the organizers were forced to admit 45 participants from various Engineering colleges through out the state. Faculty members from engineering colleges like Govt. Engineering College, Wayanad, LBS Engineering College , Kasargode, College of Engineering, Pathanapuram, Muslim Association Engineering College, Venjaramoodu, Mar Baselios College of Engineering, Thiruvananthapuram, Marian Engineering College, Thiruvananthapuram, John Memorial CSI Institute, VKC College of Engineering, Parippally, PRS College of Engineering, Paliode, Thiruvananthapuram, LourdeMatha College of Engineering, Kuttichal, Thiruvananthapuram were participated along with the faculty members from Mohandas College of Engineering and Technology.
All the faculty members attended the programme have been given course material. Participation certificates were also issued to all participants who completed the programme.
