Institute/Centre Background:

University College Cork, UCC, is one of the top universities in
Ireland. It has a large Computer Science department, including a
variety of research groups, several of which are
funded by Science Foundation Ireland (www.sfi.ie).

The Centre for Efficiency Oriented Languages (www.ceol.ucc.ie)
developed the novel programming paradigm MOQA (MOdular Quantiative
Analysis), focused on the static derivation of the average-case
cost of computing. The project builds on fundamental advances in
static average-case analysis to expand the scope and applicability of
static average-case analysis tools, with a focus on average timing and
average power analysis for hardware-software systems. A description of
the MOQA approach is available in the Springer book: "A Modular
Calculus for the Average Cost of Data Structuring"
(http://www.springer.com/computer/foundations/book/978-0-387-73383-8).
Further information on the research team, research targets and related
publications are available from: www.ceol.ucc.ie

CEOL collaborates with industry, including Synopsys, Racktivity,
Incubaid and priorly Sun and Xilinx.

The current project is in collaboration with the Department of Microelectronics.
