This poster introduces SLAW, a Scalable Locality-aware Adaptive Work-stealing scheduler. The SLAW features an adaptive task scheduling algorithm combined with a locality-aware scheduling framework. Past work has demonstrated the pros and cons of using fixed scheduling policies, such as <i>work-first</i> and <i>help-first</i>, in different cases without a(More)
RFID technology has been widely adopted in a variety of applications from logistics to access control. Many applications gain benefits from knowing the exact position of an RFID-tagged object. Existing localization algorithms in wireless network, however, can hardly be directly employed due to tag's limited capabilities in terms of energy and memory. For(More)
Multiple programming models are emerging to address an increased need for dynamic task parallelism in multicore shared-memory multiprocessors. This poster describes the main components of Rice University's Habanero Multicore Software Research Project, which proposes a new approach to multicore software enablement based on a two-level programming model(More)
Modern computer systems feature multiple homogeneous or heterogeneous computing units with deep memory hierarchies, and expect a high degree of thread-level parallelism from the software. Exploitation of data locality is critical to achieving scalable parallelism, but adds a significant dimension of complexity to performance optimization of parallel(More)
We propose Ordered Subspace Clustering (OSC) to segment data drawn from a sequentially ordered union of subspaces. Current subspace clustering techniques learn the relationships within a set of data and then use a separate clustering algorithm such as NCut for final segmentation. In contrast our technique, under certain conditions, is capable of segmenting(More)
Polyaniline (PANi), a conductive polymer, was blended with a natural protein, gelatin, and co-electrospun into nanofibers to investigate the potential application of such a blend as conductive scaffold for tissue engineering purposes. Electrospun PANi-contained gelatin fibers were characterized using scanning electron microscopy (SEM), electrical(More)
Multiple programming models are emerging to address an increased need for dynamic task parallelism in applications for multicore processors and shared-address-space parallel computing. Examples include OpenMP 3.0, Java Concurrency Utilities, Microsoft Task Parallel Library, Intel Thread Building Blocks, Cilk, X10, Chapel, and Fortress. Scheduling algorithms(More)
This paper describes an application of nonlinear decentralized robust control (Guo, Jiang & Hill, 1998) to large-scale power systems. Decentralized power controllers are designed explicitly to maintain transient stable closed-loop systems. For the "rst time, nonlinear bounds of generator interconnections are used which achieves less-conservative control(More)
Abstract—Scalable Video Coding (SVC), which is the scalable extension of the H.264/AVC standard, was developed by the Joint Video Team (JVT) of ISO/IEC MPEG (Moving Picture Experts Group) and ITU-T VCEG (Video Coding Experts Group). SVC is designed to provide adaptation capability for heterogeneous network structures and different receiving devices with the(More)
