SOD: making smartphone smart on demand with radio interface management
Brocanelli M., Wang X. ACM Transactions on Autonomous and Adaptive Systems 13(3): 1-24, 2019. Type: Article
Smartphone batteries don’t last as long as they used to. Why? Applications consume a lot of energy. However, the authors show that, besides the display, which is the most power-hungry service, all tasks related to the radio i...

Compiling with continuations, or without? Whatever.
Cong Y., Osvald L., Essertel G., Rompf T. Proceedings of the ACM on Programming Languages 3(ICFP): 1-28, 2019. Type: Article
The front end of a compiler analyzes a computer program’s source code and parses it into an intermediate representation (IR). The back end then takes this IR and translates it into machine code for execution. The techniques u...

Analyzing worldwide research in hardware architecture, 1997-2011
Singh V., Perdigones A., Garcia J., Cañas-Guerroro I., Mazarrón F. Communications of the ACM 58(1): 76-85, 2015. Type: Article
This is a curious article. When asked to prepare a review, there was no abstract, so the assignment was a bit open ended. The article seemed to be of interest; any analysis of hardware architectures from 1997 to 2011 should be interest...
