Industry Standards to Solve Multicore Challenges
The Multicore Association® (MCA) is an industry association that includes leading-edge companies implementing products that embrace multicore technology. Our primary objective is to define and promote open specifications to enable multicore product development.


The MCA Academic Members listed below have graciously agreed to share their research interests relative to Multicore Applications.

The research at DORSAL lab concentrates on improving the performance, reliability and resilience of distributed multi-core systems. It works in cooperation with a large number of industrial and governmental partners. The main results of the research conducted at DORSAL lab are made available to everyone through open source software for Linux and other platforms. For example, the LTTng project is a direct consequence of this research. In addition, several enhancements contributed to the Linux kernel are now part of the mainline kernel distribution (markers, tracepoints). Ecole Polytechnique de Montreal

Edahiro Lab (Parallel and Distributed Systems Lab)
Parallel and Distributed Systems Lab (PDSL) performs research in all aspects of parallel and distributed systems with a particular emphasis on many-core technology, embedded software, cloud computing, operating systems, and parallel algorithms. Application domains of special interest include automotive systems, transportation systems, plasma control systems, and computational science such as traffic and tsunami simulations. PDSL is in collaboration with Embedded and Real-Time Systems Lab (ERTL) at Nagoya University. Nagoya University
