Spatial hardware implementation for sparse graph algorithms in GraphStep
Michael Delorimier, Nachiket Kapre, Nikil Mehta, André Dehon
Article No.: 17
DOI: 10.1145/2019583.2019584

How do we develop programs that are easy to express, easy to reason about, and able to achieve high performance on massively parallel machines? To address this problem, we introduce GraphStep, a domain-specific compute model that captures...

ScatterD: Spatial deployment optimization with hybrid heuristic/evolutionary algorithms
Jules White, Brian Dougherty, Chris Thompson, Douglas C. Schmidt
Article No.: 18
DOI: 10.1145/2019583.2019585

Distributed real-time and embedded (DRE) systems can be composed of hundreds of software components running across tens or hundreds of networked processors that are physically separated from one another. A key concern in DRE systems is determining...

Self-organizing and self-reconfigurable event routing in ad hoc networks with causal dependency awareness
Guanhong Pei, Binoy Ravindran, E. Douglas Jensen
Article No.: 19
DOI: 10.1145/2019583.2019586

Publish/Subscribe (P/S) is a communication paradigm of growing popularity for information dissemination in large-scale distributed systems. The weak coupling between information producers and consumers in P/S systems is attractive for loosely...

Cooperative evolution of services in ubiquitous computing environments
David Tacconi, Daniele Miorandi, Iacopo Carreras, Francesco De Pellegrini, Imrich Chlamtac
Article No.: 20
DOI: 10.1145/2019583.2019587

As the number and capabilities of mobile devices is rapidly increasing, new challenges arise in the way services are currently designed. Users are seeking for more complex and advanced functionalities able to satisfy their increasing requirements....

Behavior-based adaptive call predictor
Santi Phithakkitnukoon, Ram Dantu, Rob Claxton, Nathan Eagle
Article No.: 21
DOI: 10.1145/2019583.2019588

Predicting future calls can be the next advanced feature of the next-generation telecommunication networks as the service providers are looking to offer new services to their customers. Call prediction can be useful to many applications such as...

An adaptive and predictive approach for autonomic multirate multicast networks
Naixue Xiong, Athanasios V. Vasilakos, Laurence T. Yang, Ekram Hossain
Article No.: 22
DOI: 10.1145/2019583.2019589

Autonomic communications aim at easing the burden of managing complex and dynamic networks, and designing adaptive, self-turning and self-stabilizing networks to provide much needed flexibility and functional scalability. With the ever-increasing...
