The Programming Technologies Department performs research on the design, implementation, and optimization of programming languages and programming models, focusing on distributed, multicore, and heterogenous systems; static and dynamic analysis tools; middleware for in-memory and distributed analytics; and the optimization of analytic applications. Department members have won several awards (ACM SIGPLAN Software Award; 3 Most Influential Paper Awards); been recognized as ACM Fellows and Distinguished Scientists, held numerous ACM and SIG positions, and served as general chairs, program chairs, and programming committees of major conferences. The department has successfully transferred technology and ideas to numerous IBM products, as well as built successful open source projects, such as Jikes RVM, WALA, and X10. The projects in the Programming Technologies Department span these areas:

  • Programming Language Design, Implementation, and Optimization
  • Middleware for In-Memory Analytics
    • M3R - main-memory map/reduce (Contact: Dave Grove)
    • META - Middleware for Events, Transactions, and Analytics (Contact: Martin Hirzel, Vijay Saraswat)
  • Analysis, Tools, and Techniques for Improving the Security, Robustness, and Performance

Past projects in the department include Jikes RVM, WALA, Metronome, XJ, PDS, Mirage, Thor, Thorn, PET, Paraglide, QVM, IMP, and many many more!
