Francesca Palumbo

University Of Sassari

She is currently an assistant professor at the University of Sassari, within the Information Engineering unit of the Department of Political Sciences, Communication Sciences and Information Engineering. She received her summa cum laude “Laurea Degree” in Electronic Engineering in 2005 at the University of Cagliari, then attended the Master Advanced in Embedded System Design in 2006 at the Advanced Learning and Research Institute of the University of Lugano before starting her Ph.D. in Electronic and Computer Engineering at the University of Cagliari. Her research focus is related to reconfigurable systems and to code generation tools and design automation strategies for advanced reconfigurable hardware architectures. For her studies in the fields of dataflow-based programming and hardware customization, she received two Best Paper Awards at the Conference on Design and Architectures for Signal and Image Processing, respectively in 2011 and in 2015, with the works entitled “The Multi-Dataflow Composer tool: A runtime reconfigurable HDL platform composer” and “MPSoCs for real-time neural signal decoding: A low-power ASIP-based implementation”. Dr. Palumbo serves in several different Technical Committee of international conferences and she is a permanent Steering Committee Member of the ACM Conference on Computing Frontiers and Associate Editor of the Springer Journal of Signal Processing Systems. At the moment, Dr. Palumbo is the scientific coordinator of the CERBERO (ID: 732105) H2020 European Project on Smart Cyber Physical System Design.

Speaker: Francesca Palumbo (University of Sassari)

JOINTER is a joint work from Universities of L'Aquila, Sassari and Cagliari. It is a framework that allows to develop complex heterogeneous architectures composed of programmable processors and dedicated reconfigurable accelerators on FPGA, together with customizable monitoring systems, keeping under control the introduced overhead. This work is an outcome of the FitOptiVis ECSEL project.
