Parallel Spreadsheet Programming for the Masses

Research output: Contribution to conference - NOT published in proceeding or journalConference abstract for conferenceResearchpeer-review


Spreadsheets are abundant in many areas such as science and finance, and are likely the world’s most widely used form of functional programming. Equally as ubiquitous are multi-core processors and for spreadsheet end-users to leverage them for heavyweight computation, it has until now been necessary to hire experts.
We report on static and dynamic approaches for enabling automatic parallelisation of spreadsheets, obtaining nearly a 16-fold speed-up and requiring no additional effort from end-users.
