Parallel programming skills crisis could stall server evolution


by Sandra Van Dijk, ComputerWorld
A lack of parallel programming expertise in the IT sector and the impact it will have on future server platforms is one of the biggest questions for computing over the next decade, according to James Harland, the associate professor of computer science at RMIT University.
Harland said parallel programming skills are in [...]

Multicore Association pushing for standards to ease programming


by Agam Shah
The Multicore Association is establishing specifications for a programming model that will reduce the complexity involved in writing software for multicore chips used in smartphones, tablets, and other embedded systems.
The association is putting together a cohesive set of foundation APIs (application programming interfaces) to standardize communication, resource sharing, and virtualization spanning cores on [...]

UPCRC Illinois Summer School on Multicore Programming


July 25-29, 2011
Siebel Center for Computer Science
University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
The 2011 UPCRC Illinois Summer School offers experienced programmers, with little or no exposure to parallelism, an opportunity to learn about multicore programming.

The program will provide a solid foundation in the fundamentals of multicore programming, offer hands-on experience with the use of multicore languages and [...]

Power Wall Inspires New Parallel Programming Frameworks


by George Leopold
As Moore’s Law runs out of steam and computing goes mobile, technologists are searching for ways to make the leap to new parallel programming frameworks that can leverage low-power multicore architectures. The move has been spurred by growing industry concern that today’s microprocessor computing engines have hit a “power wall”. That in turn [...]

Programming at Exascale


by Michael Wolfe, Compiler Engineer, The Portland Group, Inc.
Part 1: All that Parallelism
There are at least two ways exascale computing can go, as exemplified by the top two systems on the latest (November 2010) TOP500 list (Tianhe-1A and Jaguar). The Chinese Tianhe-1A uses 14,000 Intel multicore processors with 7,000 NVIDIA Fermi GPUs as compute accelerators, [...]
