EECS 570 will discuss foundations of a multi-processor architecture, both design and programming of such machines. We will read and discuss recent advancements in parallel architectures, and learn about recent parallel processors. We will also learn a bit about parallel applications and a dvancements in parallel programming such as CUDA, transactional memory, etc., which could influence the design of future parallel processors. There will be two programming assignment, two exams, a final research project and quiz questions on the readings.

What knowledge does EECS 570 assume?

EECS 570 assumes that you can read and analyze recent papers published in top-tier computer architecture and systems conferences (ISCA, MICRO, ASPLOS, SOSP, OSDI). EECS 470 should provide adequate preparation.
