Objectivies and Approach

The aim of this cooperative activity is to enhance and accelerate progress in ESPRIT project 6634 by using the research results obtained at the Center for Supercomputing Research and Development at the University of Illinois.

The activity will focus on the design and evaluation of memory systems, in particular the design and use of software mechanisms for improving memory efficiency usage and hardware support for sparse computations, and on the development of sparse algorithms for performance-critical applications.
