BMBF Metacca

Overview

Metacca is a research project funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) through a directive for funding for “basic research for HPC software in high-performance computing”. The goal of Metacca is to extend the AnyDSL framework into a homogeneous programming environment for heterogeneous single- and multi-node systems. To this effect, the existing programming language and compiler will be extended by an expressive type system and language features enabling efficient programming of accelerators. Significant aspects of this extension concern the modelling of memory on heterogeneous devices, distribution of data to multiple compute nodes and improving the precision and power of the partial evaluation approach.
