Abstracts and biographies


SUMMARY -

Part of lca2010, the Open Source, Multicore and Parallel Computing Miniconf offers a space to learn and discuss about Open Source contributions (existent or in process) to the problem of developing Parallel Software.

It aims to launch a conversation on how the OSS Community, Education Sector, Scientists and Researchers, Developers and Industry are looking at this “new” scenario.

We invite presentations with a broad scope that could include between others:

- Specific code and technical developments

- Direct applications to industry and scientific research

- Training and education on Parallel Programming

- How the Open Source Model will be central to develop a sustainable platform for Multicore and Parallel Computing.

The Call for Presentations ends Monday 26 of October 2009.

Please email proposals, questions and presentations to
