The mission of CAS Atlantic is to conduct research aimed at advancing the performance and concurrency of software executing on multicore systems. Innovations will be explored in the context of real-world applications, including J9, IBM's own highly versatile, high performance Java virtual machine and class library technology.
By working in joint research relationships fostered by CAS Atlantic, valuable insights are discovered that might not be encountered in the university environment. Students participate in commercial efforts that complement the university teaching environment. IBM mentors find that working with university faculty and students is an enriching experience that adds an exciting dimension to their work. IBM has found that building relationships along with groundbreaking research, and having an institution to cultivate, organize, and maintain their interests, yields a bigger return on their university investments.
