Algorithms and Software for Emerging Architectures (ASEArch) is a new EPSRC-funded Collaborative Computational Project (CCP). Led by the Oxford e-Research Centre, in collaboration with STFC staff at both Daresbury and RAL, ASEArch will investigate the use of novel architectures such as NVIDIA GPUs, and Intel's Many Integrated Core (MIC) accelerators.
As recently announced, EPSRC has committed £3.5M to support seven application CCPs in addition to ASEArch. We will work with those CCPs to assess the suitability of these new architectures for their applications, and where appropriate assist them in porting to these new platforms.
This work will build on other research on many-core computing being carried out within the Oxford e-Research Centre.
