Abstract : The Scalable concurrent Programming Project is intended to provide significant advances in scalable, high-performance, concurrent programming technology. This is to be achieved through innovations in compiler technology and programming methods. The research builds on past successes in compiler design, program development tools, programming methods and applications expertise. Two exciting directions provide the central focus for future research: fine-grain multicomputing and irregular applications. A fine-grain multicomputer is an architecture that reduces the granularity of concurrent computation by integrating hardware support for processes and messages.
