Researcher: Dr. Lawrence Snyder, UW Computer Science and Engineering Department
Year project began: 2004
This project will compare UW's supercomputer language ZPL to Cray's supercomputer language Chapel, with the goal of creating one parallel language that builds on the strongest assets of each program. This collaborative new language will be tested on Cray's next-generation supercomputers. Both software programs are open-source and will be used to accelerate the adoption and sale of supercomputers.
