Multicore Challenge 2013

June 12, 2013 8:45 am to June 12, 2013 5:45 pm

The 2013 Multicore Challenge conference is going held in Bristol on June 12th, 2013. This year the conference will focus on Heterogeneous Systems with three main themes of heterogeneous architectures, low power and high performance.

There will be a number of presentations and posters from Knowledge Transfer Partnership projects. These present the experiences of real projects that have tried to apply multicore solutions and will allow delegates to better understand the impact of these technologies. Finally, tool demonstrations and labs from XMOS, ZenoTech, Intel, Codeplay, Allinea Software, Atego, Embecosm and ARM will allow the delegate to fully appreciate how these technologies can be deployed.

There is also an academic theme throughout the day with Greg Michaelson, of Heriot-Watt University, leading a session on “Heterogeneous Systems”. Kerstin Eder from the University of Bristol will report on an EU funded project looking at “energy transparency” opening up the potential for power-aware software development, including compilation. Simon McIntosh-Smith, also of the University of Bristol, will focus on high performance computing and will report on the Montblanc European project.

All-in-all it is a perfect day for anybody grappling with the implications of multicore technologies or software engineers wanting a glimpse of their future. Entry is free for the whole day due to the kind sponsorship from the South West Microelectronics iNet, the ESP KTN and Test and Verification Solutions. Refreshments will be provided.
