Summary of Activities/Interests

Dr. Kogge's current research areas include massively parallel processing architectures, advanced VLSI technology and architectures, non van Neumann models of programming and execution, parallel algorithms and applications, and their impact on computer architecture. Since the late 1980s this has focused on single VLSI chip designs integrating both memory and logic into "Processing-in-Memory"(PIM) architectures, direct and efficient software models to support them, and scaling multiple chips to complete systems. This includes not only efficient parallel processing topologies, control strategies, and chip floor plans, but also doing so with inherently low-power CPU architectures, and for a range of real-system applications, from highly scalable deep-space exploration to petaflops-level supercomputing as part of the HTMT project. Other current work is investigating how PIM-like ideas may port into quantum cellular array logic, where instead of "Processing-in-Memory" we have opportunities for "Processing-in-Wire."


Notre Dame California Launches Silicon Valley Semester

January 17, 2017

Some 175 years after Rev. Edward Sorin, C.S.C, trekked through the frozen Indiana wilderness to found the University of Notre Dame, 10 Notre Dame juniors majoring in computer science and engineering have begun their own journey to the University’s next frontier: Silicon Valley.

Latest Graph500 Ranking of Fastest Supercomputers Released by Leading Universities at Supercomputing ’15

November 19, 2015

The 11th Graph500 list was released today at the Supercomputing 2015 conference (SC’15); it ranks the performance of more than 200 of the world's most powerful supercomputers. The Graph500 is compiled by the Georgia Institute of Technology, Indiana University, the University of Notre Dame and Boise State University. 

Kogge Receives Gauss Award

July 7, 2015

Peter M. Kogge, who has served as the Ted H. McCourtney Professor of the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at Notre Dame since 1994, will be awarded the 2015 Gauss Award award as part of the International Supercomputing Conference, which runs Sunday, July 12, through Thursday, July 16, in Frankfurt, Germany.
