There is a new Black Belt in the Academic Community

It is an exciting day in the Intel Academic Community; we have a new Black Belt for Academia!  It is my pleasure to announce that Professor Jose Villeta of the University of Southern California (USC) is our latest member to be promoted to this most coveted and honored position.
The Black Belt for Academia is earned through a combination of community participation, leadership, integration of parallel programming into curriculum nominations, and  approval by the Intel selection committee.

Brown goes to Town. Thinking Parallel in Minnesota

I have to say that I love my job. I get to meet all kinds of fascinating people all on the same road to THINK PARALLEL.  One such person is Dr. Dick Brown of St. Olaf College in Northfield, Minnesota. Professor Brown attended last year’s SIGCSE in Chattanooga, TN, and heard Michael Wrinn of Intel’s talk on Ubiquitous Parallelism.  He told me recently that this talk really helped him realize that a big change in CS curriculum was necessary.


 

Howdy from Austin: Day 3 of SC08

Howdy from Austin, TX and day 3 of SC08. The Intel Academic Community kicked off the day with another great round of debate on the No more sequential code topic. Today we  had Dr Steve Heller from Sun and Dr Dan Heller from Microsoft. They both brought fresh ideas to this subject and even got the audience involved. A professor from LSU was most interested in how to bring access to Super computers and Parallel Programming to K-12 teachers.
