Section: Application Domains


The main industrial sector related to the research activities of Corse is the one of semi-conductor (programmable architectures spanning from embedded systems to servers). Obviously any computing application which has the objective of exploiting as much as possible the resources (in terms of high-performance but also low energy consumption) of the host architecture is intended to take advantage of advances in compiler and runtime technology. These applications are based over numerical kernels (linear algebra, FFT, convolution...) that can be adapted on a large spectrum of architectures. Members of Corse already maintain fruitful and strong collaborations with several companies such as STMicroelectronics, Bull, Kalray, or Aselta.

Applying our techniques to a specific real application domain is cherished by all members of the team. In particular we believe (multi-scale) computational mechanics (such as fluid mechanics, molecular dynamics) to be a challenging domain that could take advantage both of compiler and run-time technologies that we intend to develop in Corse . The goal is to provide an end-to-end solution to the automatic optimization (thus targeting portability of optimized code) of a specific application that requires extensive computational power. If we succeed our research should contribute indirectly to advances in that domain. We are still in the process of prospecting for the most appropriate application.
