The MARS project investigates the impact of massive multicore chips on software. MARS has two parts. The Terraform subproject of MARS is conducting an in depth investigation and end-to-end restructuring of an existing application -- FileNet. The Renaissance subproject of MARS is developing an emerging application -- 3D Virtual Worlds / 3D Internet -- from scratch with the goal of running efficiently on massive multicore platforms.
