Congratulations to Professor Daniel Connors, principal investigator of an awarded Intel/HP Itanium Processor Family research grant. Fellow researchers Dirk Grunwald, Andrew Pleszkun, Amer Diwan, Elizabeth Jessup, Xiao-Chuan Cai, Robert (Bobby) Schnabel, and Clarence (Skip) Ellis share in this award as well and will use the Itanium system resources for their research/outreach projects.

The equipment awarded under the HP/Intel Itanium-Based System Grants Program includes six 1-way workstations and two 2-way workstations valued at $76,960.

The projects of interest to Intel/HP for which the Itanium systems are designated were

  • Predicate-Based Transformations for Improving Memory Efficiency
  • EPIC Computer Architecture and Compiler Technology Curriculum
  • Analysis of Scientific Computing Workloads

Subsidiary projects described in the proposal include

  • Scientific Computing Analysis and Optimization for Itanium Systems

Professor Connors will direct the use of the Itanium systems between University of Colorado Department of Computer Science and Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering projects.

The University of Colorado was selected for this research grant with a list of very prestigious schools: MIT, Carnegie Mellon, Cornell, Princeton, Harvard, and the University of Illinois.
