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 libraries, and introduce emerging research topics. Upon completion, participants will be familiar with available tools, languages, and libraries that can be used to develop parallel programs, the pros and cons of those utilities, and will be able to choose the programming environment that best matches their multicore application needs. Our curriculum is designed for those who are interested in employing multicore programming for client software applications and does not emphasize scientific computation.
