This software aims at demonstrating that we can easily provide a very small and powerful runtime for running programs that are coded in whatever programming model, but that could be *executed* in a DATAFLOW style. The Dataflow Run Time (DRT) provides the runtime support for that
The first benefit of this software is to allow a rapid development of such programs in the context of the TERAFLUX project http://teraflux.eu
TERAFLUX contributed to continuing the tradition of the Dataflow Workshp.
This year there has been a reord attendence of about 50 people.

The MULTIPROG workshop http://multiprog.ac.upc.edu/ is hosting a panel organized
by the TERAFLUX coordinator (Prof. Roberto Giorgi)
Dataflow is the most efficient Computational Paradigm. Jack Dennis, the father of Dataflow has defined it as "A Scheme of Computation in which an activity is initiated by presence of the data it needs to perform its function".
Roberto Giorgi presented TERAFLUX project at the Multicore Architectures and Their Effective Operation 2012 -Barcelona, Spain, June 28th - 29th, 2012
Here are the slides of the presentation: TERAFLUX, Effective Operation of Dataflow Parallelism in Teradevices
