2 years, 2008 – 2010.
We set up a collaboration with the team of Associate Professor Salvador Abreu at University of Lisbon and University of Évora, Portugal, about the design of a constraint solving engine (such as GNU Prolog) for parallel architectures. We are working on porting the engine on top of the runtime systems provided in our team. We also plan to study the exploitation of new processing hardware such as the heterogeneous multicore Cell processor which shows some interesting potential for this specific use.
