The MADALGO 2009 annual report is now available. The report summarizes the centers research and activities in 2009 and briefly outlines planned 2010 work.
By combining and engineering algorithm techniques from several of the core theoretical MADALGO research areas, MADALGO researchers at Goethe-University Frankfurt and collaborators at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology have set a world record in energy-efficient sorting. For obvious reasons, energy efficient computing is attracting increasing…
The Danish Minister of Research has awarded Lars Arge one of the five prestigious 2010 elite researcher awards.
