New Multicore Seminar Series Announced
February 7, 2012
Announcing a new CSAIL Multicore Software Seminar Series - a forum for researchers and developers interested in software for multicore machines. The goal is to provide provide people from industry with a place to hear the latest developments in academia and, conversely, provide graduate students with access to the latest trends in industry. The seminar consists of a one-hour talk interleaved with or followed by a town-hall-style discussion to allow attendees to use the presented talk as a basis for discussing various topics of common interest in the realm of multicore software.
On Wednesday, February 8 at 4pm in CSAIL's Star conference room (32-D463) Guy Steele of Oracle Labs will speak on "Four Solutions to a Trivial Problem." The talk will focus on a small but interesting geometrical problem and then examine four different computational approaches to solving it.
