In addition, he edited or co-edited four books including, Software Reusability (IEEE Computer Society, 1987), and Software Design Techniques, 4th edition (IEEE Press, 1983). He was the founding editor of the McGraw-Hill Series in Software Engineering and Technology, has served on several editorial boards and numerous program committees, and was an active consultant to industry, academia, and government. Dr. Freeman was a member of the Board of Directors of the Computing Research Association (1988-2002), serving as Vice-Chair and Chair of the Government Affairs Committee. He was a member of select review committees of the IRS and FAA Air-traffic Control modernization efforts, and has served on a variety of national and regional committees. While at NSF, he helped formulate the High-Performance Computing and Communications Initiative of the Federal government.

 

Dr. Freeman is a Fellow of the IEEE (Institute for Electrical and Electronics Engineers), AAAS (American Association for the Advancement of Science), and the ACM (Association for Computing Machinery). He received his Ph.D. in computer science from Carnegie-Mellon University in 1970, his M.A. in mathematics and psychology from the University of Texas at Austin in 1965, and his B.S. in physics from Rice University in 1963. His research and technical expertise has focused on software systems and their creation. His earliest work (1961-63) involved developing advanced scientific applications in the days before there were operating systems and other support software. This led him to design and build one of the earliest interactive time-sharing operating systems (1964) and ultimately to early work applying artificial intelligence to the design process for software (1965-75). This culminated with the publication of his first book, Software System Principles (SRA, 1975).

 

After a short stint teaching overseas for the United Nations, he focused his work on software engineering, ultimately being recognized for this early work by being elected a Fellow of the IEEE. Along with Prof. A. I. Wasserman, he developed one of the first software design courses (taken by thousands of industry practitioners) and published a highly popular text that served as a first introduction to software engineering. His research during this period focused on reusable software, especially using formal transformation systems. That work has resulted in several startup companies. Since 1987 when he was "loaned" by the University of California to the National Science Foundation, he has focused his attention on national policy and local action intended to advance the field of computing. In addition to his many activities as dean at Georgia Tech, he headed an NSF-funded national study of the IT worker shortage (http://www.cra.org/reports/wits/cra.wits.html), started an active group for Deans of IT& Computing, and published several papers relative to future directions of the field.

威斯康辛大学麦迪逊分校

 

   

索易教授在伊里诺伊大学获得电子与计算机工程专业博士学位,自1985年起一直在威斯康辛大学麦迪逊分校任教。目前他是计算科学系主任兼教授。

        索易教授的主要研究方向是高性能计算机系统的设计。他参与发表的论文与拥有的专利不仅影响了业内科研工作者,而且推动了商用微处理器的研发。在他的一篇题为《用于高性能、可中断流水处理器的指令发送逻辑》的论文中(发表于1987年国际计算机体系结构研讨会ISCA),他提出了一个崭新的模型,描述支持动态调度及精确中断的处理器,该模型已被一些微处理器生产商广泛采纳使用。此外,共有120多个美国专利引用过这篇论文以及它在19903月发表在IEEE计算机通讯的期刊版本。索易教授的另一篇论文.《可用于超级计算器的宽带数据存储系统》(发表于1991年编译器和操作系统系统结构支持研讨会(ASPLOS)).提出的非阻塞缓冲概念在很大程度上促进了高端微处理器从阻塞型到非阻塞型的转换。90年代早期,索易教授还分别在其两篇国际计算机体系结构研讨会(ISCA)论文中提出了多标量处理器概念以及线程间推测方法(分别为1992年的《通过可扩展的窗口分割技术实现高致密的并行》和1995年的《多标量处理器》)。其中进程间推测技术及其变种仍是当前计算机体系结构领域非常活跃的研究方向之一 1997年,索易教授在其另一篇名为《数据相关性的动态推测与同步》的ISCA论文中提出对相关内存进行推测的方法,该技术已被用于Alpha处理器的设计,许多其他处理器也正在考虑使用它。同时发表的还有一篇名为《动态的指令重用》的论文,其中提出的指令重用概念已成为另一个热门的研究领域。

        索易教授与工业界有着频繁的联系。多年来,他不断与各界体系结构专家交流研究成果,在众多国际知名的微处理器公司的设计组发表演讲,其中包括DECHaL,惠普,IBM,英特尔,MIPS,摩托罗拉,SGI Sun Microsystems

        索易教授负责编辑了《国际计算机体系结构研讨会之25年论文选集》,该书已由美国计算机协会(ACM)出版发行。此外,他还和马克希尔(Mark Hill),诺曼焦地(Norm Jouppi)合作编辑了由Morgan Kaufmann出版发行的《计算机系统结构读物》一书。

        迄今为止,索易教授共指导了13个博士生,其中许多在一流科研高校供职,包括伊里诺伊大学、马里兰大学、密西根大学、宾夕法尼亚大学、普渡大学、多伦多大学等。他们中有六位曾经获得过美国国家科学基金会(NSF)的杰出成就奖,一位曾获得了斯隆研究奖金(Sloan)。目前,索易教授所带领的研究小组仍在为下一代微处理器的创新发明进行着孜孜不倦的研究,其中包括对推测型多线程的模型研究、近似编程、值传递的预测、芯片多处理等。

        由于其"在高频指令输出处理器和指令级并行研究中的开创性贡献",索易教授获得了1999年度美国计算机协会计算机体系结构兴趣组(ACM SIGARCH)的莫里斯威尔克斯奖彰(Maurice Wilkes)。1997年他还获得了威斯康辛大学"维纳斯(Vilas)"奖以及2000年的WARFKellett Mid-Career教授研究奖。索易教授同时还是美国计算机协会(ACM)和电气电子工程师学会(IEEE)的会士。



Gurindar (Guri) Sohi received a Ph.D in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the University of Illinois, and has been a faculty member at the University of Wisconsin-Madison since 1985. He is currently a Professor in, and the Chair of, the Computer Sciences department.

Sohi's research has been in the design of high-performance computer systems. He has co-authored several papers and patents that have influenced both researchers and commercial microprocessors. His paper "Instruction Issue Logic for High-Performance, Interruptible Pipelined Processors" (in ISCA 1987) articulated a model for a dynamically-scheduled processor supporting precise exceptions, a model that was widely adopted by several microprocessor manufacturers. (This paper, and the journal version in IEEE Trans. on Computers, March 1990, have been referenced by over 120 U.S. patents. His paper "High Bandwidth Data Memory Systems for Superscalar Processors" (in ASPLOS 1991) argued for non-blocking (or lockup-free) caches, and was instrumental in influencing high-end microprocessors to switch from blocking to non-blocking caches. In the early 1990s he proposed the concept of multiscalar processors and thread-level speculation in his papers "The Expandable Split Window Paradigm for Exploiting Fine-Grain Parallelism" (in ISCA 1992) and "Multiscalar Processors" (in ISCA 1995). Thread-level speculation and its variants are currently one of the most active areas of research in computer architecture. His paper "Dynamic Speculation and Synchronization of Data Dependences" (in ISCA 1997) introduced the idea of memory dependence prediction, an idea that was used in the Alpha processor designs and is being considered by others. His paper "Dynamic Instruction Reuse" (in ISCA 1997) proposed the concept of instruction reuse, another area of active research.

Sohi has interacted heavily with industry. Over the years he has discussed his research with architects and given talks in design groups at most of the leading microprocessor manufacturers, including Digital Equipment, HaL, Hewlett-Packard, IBM, Intel, MIPS, Motorola, Silicon Graphics, and Sun Microsystems.

He edited "25 Years of the International Symposium on Computer Architecture - Selected Papers" published by ACM, and recently co-edited (with Mark Hill and Norm Jouppi) "Readings in Computer Architecture" published by Morgan Kaufmann Publishers.

Sohi has graduated 13 Ph.D students, many of whom currently hold academic positions at leading research universities (Illinois, Maryland, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Purdue, and Toronto). They include six winners of NSF CAREER awards and a winner of a Sloan Research Fellowship. He continues to lead a research group investigating different models for speculative multithreading, approximate programs, value communication prediction, chip multiprocessing, and other innovations for future microprocessors.

He received the 1999 ACM SIGARCH Maurice Wilkes award "for seminal contributions in the areas of high issue rate processors and instruction level parallelism". At the University of Wisconsin he was selected as a Vilas Associate in 1997 and won the WARF Kellett Mid-Career Faculty Researcher award in 2000. He is a Fellow of the ACM and a Fellow of the IEEE.
