Special Issue on Architecture of Future Many Core Systems

Microprocessors and Microsystems:

Special Issue on Architecture of Future Many Core Systems

General Scope:

High-performance computing systems continue to dominate the design of next generation processor architectures. These systems require specialized architectures in order to take advantage of multi-billions available on-chip transistors. This special issue is dedicated to research on the architecture and use of future many core processors. Original papers describing new and previously unpublished results are solicited on all aspects of future many core system (MCS) architectures, their performance, reliability, energy, and applications.

Papers under the following topics are considered:

  • Cache architectures of FMCS
  • Memory architecture of FMCS
  • Fault-tolerance and reliability of FMCS
  • Mapping and allocation in FMCS
  • Energy efficient FMCS
  • Workload characterization of FMCS
  • Emerging memory technologies in FMCS
  • FMCS in dark silicon era
  • Programming FMCS
  • Simulation of FMCS
  • and other related topics to FMCS.

Revisit an RT-DLT paper

Scheduling divisible real-time loads on clusters with varying processor start times

(Profiled Author: Suriayati Chuprat)

Proceedings – 14th IEEE International Conference on Embedded and Real-Time Computing Systems and Applications, RTCSA 2008. 2008:15-24:[4617269].


Recent research in real-time divisible load theory (RT-DLT) has addressed the problem of distributing arbitrarily parallelizable real-time workloads among processors which become available at different instants in the future. Given a real-time job and the times as which the processors become available, we devise exact efficient algorithms to solve two important problems: (i) determine the smallest number of processors needed to complete this job by its deadline; and (ii) given a specific number of processors, determine the earliest completion time for the job on these processors. © 2008 IEEE.





Newton-Ungku Omar Fund (NUOF) is a collaboration programme between the Government of the United Kingdom (UK) and Malaysia to develop collaboration on research and innovation. Jointly established to address socio-economic issues in Malaysia, NUOF is expected to deliver outcomes through the Science to Action (S2A) Initiative, an initiative undertaken by the Malaysian Government to enable sustainable growth beyond 2020.


Kindly be informed that a joint programme between the Academy of Sciences Malaysia (ASM) and the Royal Academy of Engineering (RAE) named as Newton Research Collaboration Programme is currently open for application as follows:

  1. a) Aims to support international exchanges between engineering researchers in the UK and Malaysia.
  2. b) Provides funding up to £24,000 for 12 months exchange programme in the area of engineering.


In relation to this, ASM wishes to invite relevant researchers to apply for the above mentioned programme. The application is open online at the RAE’s website: until 23 November 2015

Enclosed herewith is the guidance note of the programme for reference.
