“The II Open Source, Multicore and Parallel Computing Miniconf offers a space to discuss and learn 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 Sectors, Developers and Industry, Scientists and Researchers are looking at this “new” scenario. We invite presentations with a broad scope ranging from specific code and technical developments to direct applications (i.e. games industry, HPC, bioinformatics, etc), from scientific research to training on Parallel Programming.
We wish to explore how the Open Source Software Development Model will be central to develop a sustainable platform for Multicore and Parallel Computing.”
