GT models are executable, and with their natural model of concurrency they may be more suitable for programming concurrent systems (e.g., based on multicore/multiprocessor/distributed architectures) than traditional programming languages.

  • What are the relevant platforms for which such an approach could be beneficial?
  • What are the requirements for a language to support programming such platforms?
  • Will such platform concepts have to be lifted into the language, e.g., providing specific synchronisation constructs?
  • Can the language be platform independent, for the specialisation to be left to a compiler?

    To refine the questions above, I can see several ways to develop such a theme. One could target (1) a specific hardware platform, (2) a programming langauge known to compile to one or more platforms of interest, or (3) develop a conceptual model of a platform to address the relevant research questions without committing to a particular technology.

    More immediately, what are the multicore/multiprocessor/distributed architectures that are relevant an challenging today, and which woudl make interesting targets?
