Clay and Aaron from Intel will be talking about “Microsoft Concurrency Runtime” with Microsoft Software Architect Niklas Gustafsso
Aaron will be talking Dr. Clay Breshears, Intel's Concurrency Content Concierge, Parallel Programming Community Technical Guru and Intel Software Network Black Belt about his new book The Art Of Concurrency. http://oreilly.com/catalog/9780596521530/
Plus the News and all the regular wackiness you've come to expect.
Kay Wanous, Recent graduate, Earlham College
Instructor, SuperComputing Education
Ms. Wanous is a principle instructor with the Supercomputing Faculty Workshops teaching paralellism and concurrency to university faculty worldwide. Our discussion with Kay will focus on her insights and experiences teaching, her thoughts as to the state of acceptance and understanding of parallelism today, as well as her suggestions for next steps for faculty interested in bringing parallelism into their curriculum.

Professor Brown combines deep technical expertise in parallelism methodologies and techniques with an artistic vision and that puts him at the forefront of both computer science and the arts. This discussion will revolve around the intersection of computer arts and computer science and it implications for the teaching of computer and computational sciences.
David Patterson, Pardee Professor of Computer Science at the University of California at Berkeley.
Professor Patterson's book, "Computer Organization and Design" is arguably the most used text for the computer architecture course taught in every CS curricula. The new addition, with its increased focus on parallelism, as well as the content on GPUs and multithreaded multiprocessors for visual computing and other uses,will bring important changes to teaching and the introduction of parallelism. Join us for a discussion on this topic.
Professor Rubin Landau, Professor Emeritus of Physics, Oregon State University.
Computer architecture has moved to many cores, the problem sets Scientist are forced to deal with are growing more complex yet the disconnect between computer science and other computational domains in the academy is growing. What can we do to ameliorate this situation? Professor Landau will discuss curriculum based solutions to move towards coherency.
Multicore breaks a fundamental link in how we prepare our current and future developers – teach them to break a problem down into pieces and find a nice logical progression to solve each individual piece sequentially. A normal CS curriculum gets around to telling people about the idea of concurrent execution only as they have one foot out the door (senior-level systems courses, if then). At Georgia Tech we've been trying to tackle this by trying to integrate bits of multi-core throughout the curriculum – introduced gently into the entry classes as "my isn't it interesting when that happens", and getting increasingly more focused as time goes on. This admittedly means we have to forgo teaching some things to make space in the curriculum, but so far it has been surprisingly little.
Dr. Tim Mattson, Intel Principal Engineer, has been an early (and vocal) proponent of thinking parallel both in industry and academia. His past work as creator of OpenMP, as well as his present research on abstractions that bridge across parallel system design, parallel programming environments, and application software give him a unique perspective on the topic of teaching parallelism. Please join us for this conversation.
UC Berkley Lecturer Dan Garcia talks with Paul Steinberg and Tom Murphy about parallelism, the undergraduate curriculum and the way to bring passion, beauty , awe and joy back to Computer Science.
