ILLINOIS, USA: UPCRC Illinois is organizing a summer school on multicore programming on July 25-29, 2011.
Programmers with little or no exposure to parallelism have an opportunity to learn about multicore programming at the UPCRC Illinois Summer School to be held at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
The week-long, intensive workshop will provide a solid foundation in the fundamentals of multicore programming, offer hands-on experience with the use of multicore languages and libraries, and introduce emerging research topics. Upon completion, participants will be equipped to choose the best multicore programming model for current and future projects.
Prerequisites for the summer school include solid programming experience (C, C++, C# or Java languages) and a demonstrated interest in applying multicore programming to academic or professional pursuits.
On-site capacity for the summer school is limited to the first 60 participants to submit paid registration. Discounted rates for on-site participation are available for academic faculty, staff, and graduate students. There is also an option to watch summer school lectures online. This option is free, but registration is required and capacity is limited to 200.
