  Very Efficient Speculative Parallel Architecture
  VESPA
  
      (VESPA, Portuguese for "wasp") An Edinburgh
     University project using speculative multithreading to
     improve single-application and multiprogramming performance,
     and to increase fault tolerance and reliability. The project
     aims to develop a compilation environment to generate
     efficient speculative parallel code, including speculative
     parallelisation and speculative helper threads.  Other
     research involves the development of optimized thread-level
     speculative architectures and novel uses of speculative
     multithreading, such as fault-tolerance.
