报告题目：C-AMAT: A Data Access Model for the Big Data Era
报告人：Prof. Xian-He Sun, Illinois Institute of Technology
摘要： Newly emerged big data applications compound with the lasting memory-wall problem makes data access the prominent performance bottleneck of high-end computing. In addressing this prominent bottleneck, we reevaluate memory systems and introduce the novel C-AMAT model for the design and optimization of concurrent data accesses. C-AMAT is a paradigm shift to support sustained concurrent data accessing from a data-centric view. We will review the concurrency available in modern memory systems, present the concept of C-AMAT, and discuss the considerations and possibility of optimizing parallel data access for big data applications.
