Keywords ElipSys, parallel programming languages

Start Date: 01 May 1992 / Duration: 36 months / Status: ongoing

[ contact / participants ]

establishing ElipSys, an emerging European parallel programming system, by developing sophisticated and commercially important application demonstrators in selected strategic areas

Objectives and Approach

ElipSys is the parallel Logic Programming language incorporating constraint reasoning developed in the EDS project (2025).

The APPLAUSE consortium has selected three commercially important generic classes of applications, and within each of these areas it will develop exploitable prototypes:

PSAP, a system designed to assist the planning of long term (5 to 10 years) production schedules for a collection of assembly lines manufacturing a mix of different aircraft types.

A system for the prediction of protein topologies and a system for generating a physical genetic map from experimental data are being developed.

A knowledge-based decision support system concerned with the monitoring and control of pollution in the Venice Lagoon is being developed for the Venice Water Magistry.

MaTourA is a Multi-agent Tourist Advisor designed to support travel agencies in the construction of personalised tours from the huge body of tourist information available.
