International bilateral relations


Comap project: collaboration with Germany

Participants : Julien Lallet, Sébastien Pillement, Olivier Sentieys.

The CoMap project ( ) deals with the systematic mapping, evaluation, and exploration of massively parallel processor architectures that are designed for special purpose applications in the world of embedded computers.

This is a French-German project with several teams from the both countries:

The investigated class of computer architectures can be described by massively parallel networked processing elements that, using today's hardware technology, may be implemented on a single chip (SoC - System on a Chip).
