Scalable Computer Architecture

Objective

SCALA is an integrated project concerned with long-term research in advanced computer architecture. It focuses on a systematic scalable approach to systems design ranging from small energy critical embedded systems right up to large-scale networked data servers. As current methods of designing computer systems will no longer be feasible in 10 -15 years time, what is needed is new innovative approach to architecture design that scales both with advances in underlying technology and with future application domains.

This is achieved by fundamental and integrated research in scalable architecture, scalable systems software, interconnection networks and programming models each of which is necessary component in architectures 10+ years from now. If successful, this will allow Europe to capitalise on its dominance in embedded systems and interconnection networks and gain market share as consumer electronics and general purpose computing continue to converge.
