Abstract: The rapid advances in computing and networking technologies continue to stimulate formations of distributed teams worldwide. The advantages of an effective distributed design environment of tools, databases, and data management include the opportunity for a rapid assembly of a project-specific team of specialists who can immediately contribute towards the goals of the project-from almost anywhere, at any time. The DARPA-funded Vela project, named after constellation that forms the sail of Argo Navis (the Argonauts ship), brought together distributed university-based participants from six locations: MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) , MSU (Mississippi State Univ.), NCSU (North Carolina State Univ.), Stanford University, UCB (Univ. of California, Berkeley), and UCSC (Univ. of California, Santa Cruz). As conceived initially, the project was to balance two major tasks: a multi-media processor design as a project driver, and a web-based tool set for distributed design and benchmarking as the project infrastructure, with a major deliverable as a proof- of-concept demo in the University Booth during the Design Automation Conference. A total of three such demos were presented during 1998-2000, and a web-based archive of 26 peer-reviewed publications, data sets, software prototypes, and demo presentations are now accessible.

Unfortunately with your www.hpc.msstate.edu... link ... I get a 'forbidden' message when I wanted to 'dig' into the 'The Vela Project effort at MSU'
