Cristina Silvano has been named an IEEE Fellow. The IEEE Board of Directors, at its November 2016 meeting, elevated Cristina Silvano to IEEE Fellow, effective 1 January 2017. She has been recognized "for contributions to energy-efficient computer architectures". The IEEE Grade of Fellow is conferred by the IEEE Board of Directors upon a person with an outstanding record of accomplishments in any of the IEEE fields of interest. The total number selected in any one year cannot exceed the 0.1% of the total voting membership. IEEE Fellow is the highest grade of membership and is recognized by the technical and scientific community as a prestigious honor and an important career achievement.
The ANTAREX research project, coordinated by Cristina Silvano from Politecnico di Milano, wins a 3 million euro grant in the European H2020 Future and Emerging Technologies programme on High Performance Computing. The project involves leading academic and industrial partners as well as CINECA, the Italian Tier-0 supercomputing centre and IT4i, the Czech Tier-1 supercomputing center. Being one of the nineteen research projects in FET-HPC-2014, ANTAREX brings the partners on the forefront of the European research in High Performance Computing. The main goal of the ANTAREX project is to provide a breakthrough approach to express by a Domain Specific Language the application self-adaptivity and to runtime manage and autotune applications for green and heterogeneous High Performance Computing systems up to the Exascale level. The Consortium also includes three top-ranked academic partners (ETH Zurich, University of Porto, INRIA). Industrial partners include one of the leading biopharmaceutical companies in Europe (Dompé) and the top European navigation software company (Sygic). The 3-year project started in September 2015.
