Abstract at Time of Award

High-performance computing (HPC) has come to the forefront as a dominant field of technology for the advancement of science and commerce. The Industry/University Cooperative Research Center for High Performance Reconfigurable Computing at the University of Florida will investigate, develop, and evaluate new concepts, methods, infrastructure, and tools in reconfigurable HPC, from building-block devices to infrastructure to applications, and advance these technologies through research and education for the benefit of Center members, students, and the discipline at large.

Project Outcomes Report


This Project Outcomes Report for the General Public is displayed verbatim as submitted by the Principal Investigator (PI) for this award. Any opinions, findings, and conclusions or recommendations expressed in this Report are those of the PI and do not necessarily reflect the views of the National Science Foundation; NSF has not approved or endorsed its content.

A broad range of key accomplishments were achieved in CHREC
during its first phase of operations.  One key measure is scholarship.
The UF and GWU sites respectively published 59 and 15 scholarly  research
papers on CHREC research in leading journals and conferences, with 110
published center-wide.  A table of publications and students graduated by
year is included below.  A second key measure is graduations of
graduate students. The UF and GWU sites have graduated 6 and 4 doctoral
students respectively in their first phase of operations, with 17 center-wide.
Moreover, the UF and GWU sites have graduated 48 and 3 M.S. students respectively,
with 76 center-wide. Many of these 93 successful CHREC students have followed
their graduations by pursuing careers with CHREC industry (corporate and
government) members.  A third key measure is research tools output,
where the center was also highly successful. In 2011, 30 new research tools are
cited on the CHREC web site and made available to members and in a few
cases  (approved by the IAB) tools are available publicly.  These
publications, graduated Ph.D. and M.S. students, and tools, as well as related
codes, datasets,  semi-annual workshop presentations, and much more, have
provided and achieved a large wealth of  technology transfer from
the CHREC schools to the CHREC members and the field at large.
