Biros receives NSF grant to design application specific, energy efficient circuits Biros receives NSF grant to design application specific, energy efficient circuits

George Biros, leader of the ICES Parallel Algorithms for Data Analysis and Simulation Group, has received a $750,000 grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) to improve the energy efficiency of computing an important class of problems.

The three-year grant is part of the NSF’s Exploiting Parallelism and Scalability Program, which awarded approximately 20 awards this year to support “groundbreaking research leading to a new era of parallel computing.”

Co-investigators of the grant research are electrical and computer engineering professors Andreas Gerstlauer and Lizy K. John, as well as ICES researcher Robert van de Geijin. Read more.
