Talks 2006 - Ian Rogers

The Compilers and Languages Group invites you to a talk given by

Dr. Ian Rogers

(University of Manchester, UK) on

Highly parallel, object-oriented computer architecture

Date: Wednesday, August 2, 2006
Time: 14:00 (s.t.)
Location: Vienna University of Technology, Bibliothek 185/1 (Argentinierstr. 8, 4. Stock)


In this talk I will present research being undertaken in the JAMAICA project at the University of Manchester. The primary focus of our research is a computer architecture that is both multithreaded and multiprocessor. We envisage architectures with hundreds of threads becoming the norm and this presents big challenges in how to exploit the parallelism and structure the memory hierarchy. Making threading cheaper enables compiler parallelizaton to be more successful. Adding support to the memory hierarchy to remove locking and allow speculative threading, also provides means to create and sustain more parallel work. The primary means of running code on our architecture is through a JVM - a port of the Jikes RVM. We don't envisage running native code on our platform, but instead are extending the virtual machine to become an operating system and legacy code execution platform.
