Now that classes are done for many of us, we can start turning our attention to research and training projects. This last month saw some really great activities in the Middle East; I’ll be highlighting a few of those. I’ll also be be talking about the debut of Intel Software Network TV, a powerful new vehicle for building our community and continuing the conversation on defining a curriculum with parallelism at its core. Finally, take a look at our newly launched Academic Showcase and let us know what you think!

Academic Community Blogs
Intel Academic Community Blogs welcomes Professor Tom Murphy. His wide-ranging blogs take parallelism as the point of departure and continue to explore topics ranging from HPC to the discipline of computer science, to teaching, and points further.
News from the Middle East
Earlier this year, the Jordan University of Science and Technology (JUST) became the 1000th University to join the Intel Academic Community. Now, in an unrelated, but significant notice, Intel announced that it was funding a multi-core laboratory at the university. Link
From Cairo Egypt, the Academic Community recently received some kind words from Dr. Mohamed Bakr Abdelhalim. Shukran Ya Ustadh. For more on Dr. Abdelhalim please see our community testimonials.
News from the Americas
Georgia Tech Instructor-Led-Training was well-attended with 14 faculties from the Historically Black Colleges or Universities. Faculty from Clark Atlanta, Howard University, Spellman College, North Carolina A&T State University and Hampton University were in attendance. See more here.
See an interview with Dr. Andrew Chien, VP of Intel Research at Research@Intel Day. Andrew discusses the importance of supporting computing excellence and Intel’s sponsorship of the ACM’s AM Turing Award. You can find information on future technologies research at www.intel.com/research.
