Action IC1001: Transactional Memories: Foundations, Algorithms, Tools, and Applications (Euro-TM)

Year: 2012 – 2014
Project: Research and Development
Client: EU RTD Framework Programme


Euro-TM has been a European COST Action involving 42 institutions from 17 countries. Its goal has been to sustain and consolidate the cooperaion in European research in the field of parallel programming relying on Transactional Memory. The topics of the research focused on theoretical foundations, algorithms, support for the operating system, programming languages, and applications.

Euro-TM has allowed a renewed cooperation among the involved institutions, thanks to several actions and events, such as 9 international workshops, 2 winter schools, several meetings, inter-exchange missions for researchers, and working groups.

The results of the action have led to the publication of the following book, to which members of Lockless have contributed as authors:
Transactional Memory: Foundations, Algorithms, Tools and Applications, Lecture Notes in Computing Sciences
Editors: Paolo Romano and Rachid Guerraoui.
Publisher: Springer. ISBN: 978-3-319- 14719-2 (Print) 978-3-319-14720-8 (Online)
