Major Professional Contributions:

Prof. G Ramaswamy significantly contributed on exploiting parallelism at all levels through novel architecture design and innovative compilation techniques which are founded on elegant mathematical abstraction and theoretical rigour. His impactful contributions include:

• Pioneering contribution on integer linear program formulation of software pipelining problem in era of instruction level parallelism.
• Novel design of simultaneous multithreaded architecture to exploit both instruction and thread level parallesim.
• Design of effective vectorizing compiler for exploiting subword parallelism.
• Elegant modeling of nested loop software pipelining as single dimensional problem.

His research work has been influential in design and shaping Supercomputer Education and Research Centre at IISc, i.e. One of the best academic computer centres.
