EPSRC has identified ‘Many-core Architectures and Concurrency in Distributed and Embedded Systems’ as a priority for future research funding. The ICT Theme would like to engage with the research community across the ICT portfolio on the technical challenges which underlie it. The aim is to draw together representatives from across the ICT communities and with them build up a picture of the problems faced; exploring the different research approaches that will be needed to find solutions.
A workshop has been planned to collect views about priorities and directions for the research in this area.
Outcomes of this workshop will feed into the ICT Theme strategy and will influence the successful delivery of this priority. Research funding to help address this priority will be made available through a call for proposals later in 2012, for which up to £5M is available. The scope of this call will be influenced by the challenges identified during this workshop.
