Vijayanand Nagarajan: Towards Semantics-directed Hardware Memory Consistency

The memory consistency model which mandates what value a memory read can return, is at the heart of shared memory concurrency. With regard to memory consistency models, an inherent trade-off between programmability and performance is presumed. For instance, it is thought that implementing sequential consistency (SC) would be too expensive as it is presumed that it would preclude hardware optimisations such as write-buffering. In this talk, we show that prior hardware SC implementations are overly restrictive in that they do not exploit most of the concurrency opportunities allowed by SC. We proceed to show how SC can be implemented efficiently while retaining hardware optimisations such as write-buffering. We conclude by arguing for semantics-directed hardware design for realising programmable, yet efficient shared memory consistency models.

Laura Meagher: Impact Evaluation: Making Knowledge Exchange Visible

As increasing attention is paid to influences of research beyond academia, complementary challenges exist: generating impacts and capturing impacts. Impacts can take place over the long-term and can take multiple forms, some of them quite subtle.Insights from across numerous impact evaluations of research initiatives and funding schemes illuminate: 1) ways in which impacts can be articulated and 2) ways in which knowledge exchange can lead to impacts.
