New H2020 FET-HPC project ASPIDE


Prof. Radu Prodan acquired a new H2020 FET-HPC project called ASPIDE: exAScale ProgramIng models for extreme Data procEssing. The ASPIDE project will contribute with the definition of a new programming paradigms, APIs, runtime tools and methodologies for expressing data-intensive tasks on Exascale systems, which can pave the way for the exploitation of massive parallelism over a simplified model of the system architecture, promoting high performance and efficiency, and offering powerful operations and mechanisms for processing extreme data sources at high speed and/or real-time.
