The 41st IPP Symposium

Transactional Memory at Sun

Mark Moir, Sun Microsystems

Mark will talk about work related to transactional memory going on at Sun, particularly related to interfaces at various levels, and how it relates to relevant work by others in industry.

Bio: Mark Moir received the B.Sc.(Hons.) degree in Computer Science from Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand in 1988, and the Ph.D. degree in Computer Science from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, USA in 1996. From August 1996 until June 2000, he was an assistant professor in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Pittsburgh. In June 2000, he joined Sun Microsystems Laboratories, where he is now the Principal Investigator of the Scalable Synchronization Research Group. Dr. Moir's main research interests concern practical and theoretical aspects of concurrent, distributed, and real-time computing. His current research focuses on hardware and software mechanisms for making it easier to develop scalable, efficient, and correct concurrent programs for shared-memory multiprocessors.
