Prestigious ACM/IEEE CODES+ISSS '22 Test-of-Time award for PCS publication

On October 11th, Andy Pimentel and Simon Polstra from the PCS research group received the prestigious Test of Time award at the 2022 IEEE/ACM International Conference on Hardware/Software Codesign and System Synthesis (CODES+ISSS) for the paper entitled “A Framework for Rapid System-level Exploration, Synthesis, and Programming of Multimedia MP-SoCs” that was published in 2007 at the same conference. This paper, which contains joint work from the University of Amsterdam and Leiden University, proposed a groundbreaking new method for automated, system-level synthesis of multi-core hardware/software embedded systems. The Test of Time award is handed out, after a rigorous selection process, to a paper that has demonstrated to have had a major and lasting impact on the research field.
