Program aims to develop improved compilers

Friday, April 8th, 2005

InformationWeek reports today that HP and Intel are funding an effort to develop improved compilers for Itanium. The effort is being driven by the Gelato Federation and is led by University of Illinois professor Wen-mei Hwu.

According to the article:

Work will proceed on improving two software tools: the OpenImpact compiler developed by Hwu specifically to run on Itanium, and the Free Software Foundation’s more general GNU compiler collection. Commonly known as GCC, it’s a multi-platform set of compilers for C, C++, Fortran and other languages.

The first concrete milestone of the effort will be timed for May, when the Gelato Strategy Council is scheduled to meet in Cupertino, Calif.

Petition to save National Collaboratories

Monday, March 21st, 2005

Carl Kesselman, along with other leading lights and with a little hosting help from Tabor Communications, has launched a petition to try to convince Congress to save the DOE’s National Collaboratories program. Funding from this program has been instrumental in the development of a string of grid computing successes, including GridFTP, the Access Grid, and many Globus-related tools, according to Kesselman.
