  author={Peter M. G. Apers and Martin L. Kersten and Hans Oerlemans},
The PRISMA project is a large-scale research effort in the design and implementation of a highly parallel machine for data and knowledge processing. The PRISMA database machine is a distributed, main-memory database management system implemented in an object-oriented language that runs on top of a multi-computer system. A prototype that is envisioned consists of 64 processing elements.
