Swiss multicore project wins Microsoft grant

EETimes Reports: "A project at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology ETH Zurich is one of seven academic research projects that will share $1.5 million from Microsoft External Research as part of the Safe and Scalable Multicore Computing request for proposal (RFP).

Micrsoft External Research says the aim of this RFP is to stimulate and enable bold, substantial research in multicore software that rethinks the relationships among computer architecture, operating systems, runtimes, compilers and applications. The goal of the research is to propose new mechanisms and paradigms that will lead to safe and scalable concurrent systems and applications, focusing on mainstream client platforms."

The story is too old to be commented.
