Efficiently scheduling data-parallel computation jobs over cloud-scale computing clusters is critical for job performance, system throughput, and resource utilization. It is becoming even more challenging with growing cluster sizes and more complex workloads with diverse characteristics. This paper presents Apollo, a highly scalable and coordinated(More)
In this paper we describe the IAMwildCAT agent, designed for the TAC Market Design game which is part of the International Trading Agent Competition. The objective of an agent in this competition is to effectively manage and operate a market that attracts traders to compete for resources in it. This market, in turn, competes against markets operated by(More)
OBJECT The purpose was to highlight the diagnosis and treatment of extra-adrenal para-gangliomas, which often causes catecholamine hypersecretion and hypertension. METHODS 67 cases of extra-adrenal paraganglioma of retroperitoneum proven pathologically from 1999 to 2009 were reviewed and studied after operation. Endocrine secretion examinations, B-US, CT,(More)
BACKGROUND MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are a class of important gene regulators. The number of identified miRNAs has been increasing dramatically in recent years. An emerging major challenge is the interpretation of the genome-scale miRNA datasets, including those derived from microarray and deep-sequencing. It is interesting and important to know the common rules(More)
Micro-channel cooling shows great potential in removing high density heat in 3D circuits. The current micro-channel heat sink designs spread the entire surface to be cooled with micro-channels. This approach, though might provide sufficient cooling, requires quite high pumping power. In this paper, we investigate the non-uniform allocation of micro-channels(More)
BACKGROUND MicroRNAs(miRNAs) are important cellular components and their dysfunction is associated with various diseases. Acute myocardial infarction (AMI) is one of the most serious cardiovascular diseases. Although several miRNAs are reported to be associated with AMI, more novel miRNAs are needed to further investigate and improve certainty METHODS We(More)
3D-ICs bring about new challenges to chip thermal management due to their high heat densities. Micro-channel based liquid cooling and thermal through-silicon-vias (TSVs) have been adopted to alleviate the thermal issues in 3D-ICs. Thermal TSV (which have no electrical significance), enables higher interlayer thermal conductivity thereby achieving a more(More)
In this paper, we investigate Dynamic Thermal Management (DTM) policies under soft thermal constraint that allows the thermal constraint to be violated for a user specified period. For single core processor, we develop analytical expression for the optimal frequency policy under the soft constraint such that maximal performance can be extracted. We extend(More)
