This week I get to "talk parallel" at Supercomputing 2009 in Portland and at Microsoft's Professional Developer's Conference in L.A. If you will be either place, you should visit us at our booths and talks!
This morning, I took a rare break, and attended a tutorial at Supercomputing. I'm glad I did.
The tutorial looked at the pros and cons of mixing MPI and OpenMP in a single program, and was taught by Rolf Rabenseifner (University of Stuttgart), Georg Hager (University of Erlangen) and Gabriele Jost (Texas Advanced Computing Center/Naval Postgraduate School).
You are hereby invited to a gathering on November 17 at 5:30 pm in room C124 of the Oregon Convention Center in Portland. We are having a panel discussion focused on incorporating parallelism into the Computer Science curriculum. Of course, you might need to purchase a day pass to SC09 to attend, if you are not otherwise attending.
