Glasgow in summer … what a great experience! If you are enthusiastic about manycore processors, systems and parallel applications, please sign up for the Manycore summer school, running 16-20 July at the School of Computing Science, University of Glasgow.
The manycore revolution is fundamentally changing multiple levels of the execution stack from processor architecture, through systems software, to end-user applications. Moore’s law is now tracking the number of cores in a chip – such as the latest Intel Core i9 and AMD Epyc processors.
Thanks to generous sponsorship from SICSA and EPSRC, registration and one week en-suite accommodation at the Manycore summer school are provided for free to PhD students and postdocs based at UK universities.
Highlights of the Manycore summer school programme include:
- seven world-leading academics presenting latest research topics
- hands-on labs with FPGAs and cluster programming exercises
- poster competition with expert feedback and prize awards
- social events including a cruise on Loch Lomond and a traditional Ceilidh night
