An open discussion about the role and future of SIMD in current and future processor architectures.
We also want to use this opportunity to discuss the future and strategy regarding the WPMVP workshop.
Lionel LACASSAGNE is Professor in Computer Science at Sorbonne University (Formerly University Pierre et Marie Curie - Paris 6). He got an Engineering Degree in Computer Science in 1995 (EPITA) and a Doctorate in Robotics in 2000 (Paris 6 University). He has been assistant professor (2002–2015) in Paris-Sud University. He is an expert in code optimization for SIMD multi-core processors, GPUs, Cell processor and VLIW DSP. His current research areas deal with high-performance computing and image processing applied to embedded systems. His current researches focus on the design of new algorithms for multi-core, many-core processors and GPUs.
