David Atienza receives the ICCAD award
David Atienza, professor at the School of Engineering and Head of the Embedded Systems Laboratory (ESL), has received with his co-authors the IEEE/ACM ICCAD Ten Year Retrospective Most Influential Paper Award for the scientific publication entitled « 3D-ICE: Fast compact transient thermal modeling for 3D-ICs with inter-tier liquid cooling »
Presented at the IEEE/ACM International Conference on Computer-Aided Design (ICCAD) 2010, the research from professor Atienza and his team at ESL, in collaboration with IBM Zurich, on the design of open-source 3D Interlayer Cooling Emulator (3D-ICE) tool: 3D-ICE for compact transient thermal modeling of 2D/3D multi-processor system-on-chip (MPSoC) with liquid-cooling and other cooling technologies, has been awarded the ICCAD 2020 Ten Year Retrospective Most Influential Paper Award. This work was used in the design of Aquasar (the first chip-level water-cooled server by IBM), and 3D-ICE is currently a popular open-source tool used by more than 1500 scientific teams (both industry and academia) around the world. More information on this work and latest results can be found on ESL’s research line page here: Thermal, power and performance aware design of 2D/3D system-on-chip architectures
The IEEE/ACM ICCAD’s Ten Year Retrospective Most Influential Paper Award is given to the paper considered to be the most influential in research and industrial practice in computer-aided design over the ten years since its original appearance at ICCAD. As part of the recognition, the authors of the publication receive 1,000 USD to honor this accomplishment.
