The Parallel Compiler Runtime Consortium includes several leading
research groups working on parallel runtime systems and compilers, including
Northeast Parallel Architectures Center
at Syracuse University,
coordinating the project and responsible
for development of a major contribution to the runtime (emphasisizing regular
communication patterns and collective computation operations) and
demonstration of an experimental HPF translator exploiting the runtime.
University of Maryland,
responsible for runtime support, especially for
irregular array mappings and communication patterns, and authors
of the METACHAOS package for interfacing between the various runtime
components developed in the project.
contributing the Tulip runtime of pC++, the data-parallel component
of the HPC++ consortium.
University of Rochester,
investigating the utility of the
new runtime systems for distributed shared-memory architectures.
University of Texas, Austin,
developing the DAGH system for adaptive grid problems.
Cooperating Systems Corporation,
providing help in software quality assurance and documentation.
studying compiler requirements.
University of Florida,
providing advanced algorithms for collective computations
operations such as the combining scatter operation.
