PeakStream CTO To Discuss Data-Parallel Programming Models for Multi-Core Processors At CGO 2007
San Jose, Calif. - March 5, 2007 - Matthew Papakipos, founder and chief technology officer of PeakStream, Inc., will be leading a workshop, “Data-Parallel Programming Models for Many-Core Architectures,” examining emerging programming models for leveraging multi-core processors for high performance computing at the 2007 International Symposium on Code Generation and Optimization (CGO).
PeakStream founder and CTO Matthew Papakipos, along with Anwar Ghuloum of Intel’s Programming Systems Lab, will introduce new data-parallel programming models that are helping programmers tackle the numerous hurdles and productivity problems associated with developing software for increasingly parallel architectures.
The annual International Symposium on Code Generation and Optimization (CGO) brings together researchers and practitioners working on feedback-directed optimization and back-end compilation techniques. The conference covers optimization for parallelism, performance, power and security.
This workshop will gather commercial and academic researchers, vendors and users of data-parallel programming platforms to discuss implementation experiences and techniques for a broad range of multi-core architectures while discussing the future direction of programming-models. It will examine the inherent shortcomings and difficulties with automatic parallelization and manual parallel programming models that are creating enormous programmer productivity problems. It will also explore the factors making emerging models for parallel programming extremely attractive.
This workshop will take place on Saturday, March 11, 2007 from 8:00 am - 12:00 pm PST.
CGO 2007 will be held from March 11 - 14, 2007 and precedes the annual ACM SIGPLAN Symposium on Principles and Practice of Parallel Programming (PPoPP 2007).
CGO 2007 will be held at Hotel Valencia, located at 355 Santana Row in San Jose, California.
