There was a technical presentation on Tuesday, September 28, 2010, on Intel Cilk Plus. The recording of that presentation is available here.
There are two technical presentations coming up next week:

Topic: Adding Parallelism with Intel Parallel Advisor 2011: No Parallelism Experience Required
Intel Parallel Advisor 2011 provides the information and the tools needed by any C/C++ programmer to add safe and effective parallelism to their programs. Parallel Advisor is a component of Intel Parallel Studio 2011 and is integrated into Microsoft Visual Studio*.
In this presentation, you will learn how to:
Find the places in the program where parallelism can be usefully added
Find and replace the parts of the program that prevent parallelism
Test the revised program for parallel correctness and performance
Keep the program serial through these steps
Add parallelism to code samples / examples

Topic: Intel Array Building Blocks Technical Presentation: Introduction and Q&A
Intel Array Building Blocks provides a generalized data parallel programming solution that frees application developers from dependencies on particular hardware architectures. It offers an API that allows parallel algorithms to be expressed at a high level. Its dynamic compiler and runtime produce scalable, portable and deterministic parallel implementations from the single high-level source. This technical presentation is an introduction to Intel ArBB. We will discuss the main features of Intel ArBB, and walk through some sample code to demonstrate the benefits such as forward-scaling, safety-by-design, and ease-of-use. There will be a Q&A session at the end of the presentation to answer any questions you have for Intel ArBB.
Presenters: Noah Clemons, Zhang Zhang
