Middleware and Runtime Systems (MARS) Laboratory (formerly, Grid Applications Research Lab (GARL) 2004-September 2013) was started in 2004 by Dr. Sathish S. Vadhiyar in Supercomputer Education and Research Centre at Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore. The lab is currently part of Department of Computational and Data Sciences (CDS), IISc.
The lab deals with High Performance Computing (HPC) in general, and building middleware and runtime systems for parallel applications and systems, in particular. Our work spans accelerator systems, large-scale supercomputers and grids. We primarily focus on irregular applications including graph applications, N-Body simulations, Molecular Dynamics (MD), and Adaptive Mesh Refinement (AMR) applications. We have also worked with applications in climate science and visualization in collaboration with researchers working in these areas. We are also eager to learn about and providing solutions for efficient executions, good speedups, and in general remarkable reduction in turnaround times of large time-consuming Industrial applications.
