    • A New Task Graph Model for Mapping Message Passing Applications 

      Roig Mateu, Concepció; Ripoll, A.; Guirado Fernández, Fernando (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2007)
      The exploitation of parallelism in a message passing platform implies a previous modeling phase of the parallel application as a task graph, which properly reflects its temporal behavior. In this paper, we analyze the ...
    • A Pipeline-Based Approach for Mapping Message-Passing Applications with an Input Data Stream 

      Guirado Fernández, Fernando; Ripoll, A.; Roig Mateu, Concepció; Luque, Emilio (Springer Verlag, 2004)
      Pipeline applications simultaneously execute different instances from an input data set. Performance parameters for such applications are latency (the time taken to process an individual data set) and throughput (the ...
    • Accurate consistency-based MSA reducing the memory footprint 

      Lladós Segura, Jordi; Cores Prado, Fernando; Guirado Fernández, Fernando; Lérida Monsó, Josep Lluís (Elsevier, 2021)
      Background and Objective: The emergence of Next-Generation sequencing has created a push for faster and more accurate multiple sequence alignment tools. The growing number of sequences and their longer sizes, which require ...
    • Enhancing throughput for streaming applications running on cluster systems 

      Guirado Fernández, Fernando; Roig Mateu, Concepció; Ripoll, A. (Elsevier, 2013)
      The exploitation of throughput in a parallel application that processes an input data stream is a difficult challenge. For typical coarse-grain applications, where the computation time of tasks is greater than their ...
    • Exploiting Knowledge of Temporal Behaviour in Parallel Programs for Improving Distributed Mapping 

      Roig Mateu, Concepció; Ripoll, A.; Senar, M.A.; Guirado Fernández, Fernando; Luque, Emilio (Springer Verlag, 2000)
      In the distributed processing area, mapping and scheduling are very important issues in order to exploit the gain from parallelization. The generation of efficient static mapping techniques implies a previous modelling ...
    • Exploiting parallelism on progressive alignment methods 

      Orobitg Cortada, Miquel; Guirado Fernández, Fernando; Notredame, Cedric; Cores Prado, Fernando (Springer Verlag, 2011)
      Multiple Sequence Alignment (MSA) constitutes an extremely powerful tool for important biological applications such as phylogenetic analysis, identification of conserved motifs and domains and structure prediction. In ...
    • Exploiting Throughput for Pipeline Execution in Streaming Image Processing Applications 

      Guirado Fernández, Fernando; Ripoll, A.; Roig Mateu, Concepció; Hernàndez, A.; Luque, Emilio (Springer Verlag, 2006)
      There is a large range of image processing applications that act on an input sequence of image frames that are continuously received. Throughput is a key performance measure to be optimized when executing them. In this ...
    • Fully distributed authentication with locality exploitation for the CoDiP2P peer-to-peer computing platform 

      Cores Prado, Fernando; Guirado Fernández, Fernando; Naranjo, J. A. M.; Casado, L. G. (Springer Verlag, 2013)
      CodiP2P is a distributed platform for computation based on the peer-topeer paradigm. This article presents a novel distributed authentication method that suits the platform and adapts to its characteristics. The developed ...
    • Predicting the Best Mapping for Efficient Exploitation of Task and Data Parallelism 

      Guirado Fernández, Fernando; Ripoll, A.; Roig Mateu, Concepció; Yuan, X.; Luque, Emilio (Springer Verlag, 2003)
      The detection and exploitation of different kinds of parallelism, task parallelism and data parallelism often leads to efficient parallel programs. This paper presents a simulation environment to predict the best mapping ...
