This project is funded under the Seventh Framework Program of the European Commission in the ICT-2009.3.6 Computing Systems theme.
It aims at providing a unified framework for programming architecturally diverse, heterogeneous many-core processors to ensure performance portability. PEPPHER will advance state-of-the-art in its five technical work areas: 1) Methods and tools for component based software 2) Portable compilation techniques 3) Data structures and adaptive, autotuned algorithms 4) Efficient, flexible run-time systems 5) Hardware support for autotuning, synchronization and scheduling.
The PEPPHER consortium consists of european research centres and universities (INRIA, Chalmers, LIU, KIT and UNIVIE), a major company (Intel) and European multi-core SMEs (Codeplay and Movidia).
