MASALA is a joint laboratory space for students working on a variety
of computer architecture research projects. The word
originally describes a mix of spices (often used in Indian cuisine), but
it is very appropriate for this lab as the research projects happening
here and many and varied, covering a wide range of computer architecture
topics from low-level microarchitecture to high-level system-design
and programmability issues.
Location: Klaus Advanced Computing Building, Room 2405
