The IEEE Xplore Digital Library has made available another of our latest conference papers. This time was at the IEEE International Conference on Cluster Computing 2014, which took place at Madrid past September.
The work was presented in the form of a poster entitled “Performance evaluation of a signal extraction algorithm for the Cherenkov Telescope Array’s Real Time Analysis pipeline” and the paper can be accessed here.
In this paper, several versions of a signal extraction algorithm, pertaining to the entry stage of the Cherenkov Telescope Array‘s Real Time Analysis pipeline, were implemented and optimized using SSE2, POSIX threads and CUDA. Results of this proof of concept let us gain an insight into the suitability of each platform, and the performance each one can deliver, to carry out this particular task.
This work constitutes a first step in the “cloudification” of this application and represents the first publication of my PhD student Juan José Rodríguez-Vázquez in this context.
