2PARMA Project eu fp7

Project Description

The project workplan is composed of eight workpackages (WPs) as shown in Figure 1 and 2. There are five technical WPs (WP1, WP2, WP3, WP4 and WP5), one demonstration WP (WP7), one dissemination and exploitation WP (WP6) and one management WP (WP8).

WP1 will define the architecture and application specification and the tools requirements while WP2, WP3 and WP4 will provide the techniques and tools for the integration, validation and industrial demonstration activities to be carried out in WP5 and WP7 respectively. The research activities carried out in the first four WPs are tightly correlated and require a close cooperation between the partners. The architectures, applications, methodologies and tools developed in WP2, WP3 and WP4 will be integrated in WP5 and then assessed in WP7. The research activities to be done in WP1, WP2, WP3, WP4 and WP5 represent also the basis for the activities carried out in WP6 to prepare for the dissemination and/or exploitation of project results. Finally, the activities in WP8 are dedicated to the project management.

The tool environment and design flow of the 2PARMA project is shown in Figure 2, where there are also outlined the corresponding workpackage and the main contributors to the activities. The basic idea behind the 2PARMA project is to combine the automatic extraction of parallelism to dynamic compilation in order to exploit the management of system resources at runtime.
