20Multicore%20Programming%20Education.htm

The acceptance of multiprocessors as the mainstream computing
platform requires a fundamental change in the way we develop software.

This workshop will attempt to bring together researchers and
educators, with the goal of developing, through dialog, a 
better understanding of the possible directions to take in 
order to bring multicore programming education to the masses.

The workshop will feature 8 distinguished speakers, prominent
researchers and educators in the area of multiprocessor programming.
The speakers will present their approach, experiences, and 
suggestions for educational directions, and later participate 
in an open panel with the workshop attendees.

Workshop Registration is free, including Lunch and Coffee breaks. 
Registeration for MPE 2009 is now open (via ASPLOS 2009 registration 
site). There are a limited number of slots, so register early rather 
than late!
