The Center for Hybrid Multicore Productivity Research, an NSF Industry/University Cooperative Research Center (I/UCRC), addresses productivity, performance and scalability issues involved in meeting the growing computational demands of industry and government--through the continuous evolution of multicore architectures and open source tools.
Multicore processors have become commodity chips for personal computers as well as for high-end clusters, yet few applications effectively take advantage of these architectures. As the number of processors on a single chip continues to increase, scaling industry and government applications to grow linearly in performance will be the defining challenge for the multicore industry. This I/UCRC's mission is to research the scalability of multicore processing performance and cloud computing services, while advancing research and training opportunities for students and faculty in multicore technologies. The center also identifies best practices for approaches to multicore systems and software development and creates a forum for active engagements between industry and academia.
An I/UCRC not only contributes to the nation's research infrastructure base; it also enhances the intellectual capacity of the science and engineering workforce through the integration of research and education. The program leverages NSF funding with industry resources to support graduate students performing industrially relevant and interdisciplinary research.
The Center for Hybrid Multicore Productivity Research offers courses and internship opportunities in which students engage with industry partners in projects of relevance to science, the environment, human health, socioeconomics, and national welfare.
